In Ancient Times to be a Druid was to be a religious leader, legal authority, adjudicator, lore keeper and political advisor. In 2021, Druid are re-writing the definition, bringing heaviness to the world in the form of their new breed of nu-metal/metalcore machinations.
Today we're casting the runes and premiering Druid's new single Room 44 and if you dig bands like Stone Sour and Linkin Park, we think you should give this tune a crack!
Room 44 was written by Druid & The Loud Noise Estate. Evan Lee and Ash Daws from The Loud Noise Estate also produced, mixed, and mastered the track.
The band began in 2018 - finding each other in a most serendipitous way - and the following months produced their first EP Semblance, with the Loud Noise Estate - which paved the way to play shows alongside BLKLST, Wither, The Weight of Silence, The Motion Below and Superheist.
The band says of their time in 2020, "We did not see the pandemic as a reason to slow down. In the downtime, we kept writing and by the time the first lockdown was over we jumped back into the studio to record our soon to be announced debut full-length."
Only time will tell what is in store for Druid in the future, but one thing is for sure. It will be unique and it will be heavy.
Room 44 will be released on Friday April 16 on all digital stores and streaming platforms - check out the premiere below.
