Envy return with first release in three years, ‘Alnair in August’ (listen)
Back in 2015, influential Japanese screamo greats Envy released their very good new album Atheist’s Cornea and toured with Deafheaven (one of their biggest tours to date). Since then, they've undergone a few lineup changes, as founding members Masahiro Tobita (guitar) and Dairoku Seki (drums) have left the group and original vocalist Tetsuya Fukagawa returned to the band after a two-year hiatus. With new guitarist Yoshimitsu Taki and new drummer Hiroki Watanabe in the fold, Envy debuted their new lineup with the new two-song single, Alnair in August, which features the songs "Dawn and gaze" and "Marginalized thread," their first new songs in three years. They may have undergone some changes, but their music sounds as towering as ever. Listen to these two great new songs below.
Envy also announced a few Japan dates which are listed below.
