Ontario screamo trio Gillian Carter recently returned with a few killer new songs, and now they've finally announced their first album in four years, Salvation Through Misery, due October 7 via Skeletal Lightning (pre-order). It doesn't include any of those recent tracks, but it does include new single "The Pain of Being Awake," and this is another dose of impassioned, caustic fury (with an irresistibly slowed-down coda) that's got my hopes very high to hear more of this LP.

Vocalist multi-instrumentalist Logan Rivera, who also produced the album, says, "I was having these crazy panic attacks about not having enough money, getting the record done, and feeling inadequate. I really got in my head. That’s ‘The Pain of Being Awake.’" Of the album overall, he adds, "It’s the most technical we’ve gone. I made a conscious effort not to think too much. With the way life was affecting me, it made sense to play heavier, so it’s the heaviest and angriest we’ve ever been."
