Los Angeles’ ANCESTORS create mighty, modern music that dovetails innovative arrangement, crushing primordial riff interplay and melodic instrumental passages with textural atmospherics.
Ancestors formed in Los Angeles in 2006. A deal with Tee Pee Records resulted in four critically acclaimed, expansive albums, which incorporated the heaviness of doom metal with the vast dynamics of post-rock, the structural elements of progressive rock and the fluidity of psychedelic rock.
In the five years that have passed since the band’s last album, “In Dreams and Time”, they have continued to hone their craft in anticipation of their return to stage and wax.
“We’re honored to be joining the Pelagic Records family”, says guitarist / vocalist Justin Maranga. “We’re excited to start the next chapter of Ancestors and we believe that Pelagic is the perfect label to partner with on this adventure!”
We’re more than stoked to bring you this amazing album in the summer of 2018 – stay tuned! For a first glimpse, check out the track “Gone”, which was just released as part of the Pelagic compilation “MMXVIII”:
