New York City‘s Tanith, featuring Russ Tippins (guitars, vocals), Cindy Maynard (bass, vocals), and Keith Robinson (drums), have released their new album Voyage via Metal Blade. The record is available digitally, on CD, and via multiple vinyl variants.
The album was recorded and mastered on 24-track analog tape and has never been digitized from recording to pressing. Fans may also recognize Tippins from NWOBHM outfit Satan. The kick off the release, the band have shared the single and video “Flame.”
Russell Tippins comments on the track:
To us, ’Flame‘ is a standout track. Firstly, it‘s written in a major key which isn‘t too common in Metal these days, and Cindy plays keys on the intro! Although the lyrical theme is pretty dark, we made sure to keep the music upbeat and positive. We really had the best time making this video at Saint Vitus… enjoy!
Tanith was formed in 2017, inspired by 70s Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. This led to the release of 2019’s aptly titled album In Another Time. Now, they return with Voyage, picking up where they left off.
I wanted more of the same but different in some marginal way. Voyage is the sound of the universe speaking to mankind through the medium of Tanith. Or, if you like, twin-guitar heavy rock with dual singers which, if you grew up in the 1970s, will make you want to bounce over to the nearest record store. On a space hopper.
