As they prepare for the release of their monumental new E.P. “Forge Your Future”, SPIRIT ADRIFT have reemerged with a music video for the album’s stunning second single “Wake Up.” 

Vocalist/guitarist Nate Garrett comments: “The video for ‘Wake Up’ marks the third time we’ve worked with Guilherme Henriques, and these collaborations somehow produce better results every time. Guilherme has become a crucial contributor to how we visually express ourselves. For this video, he and I began by discussing a certain story arc from Alan Moore’s run on Swamp Thing comics, and our own unique vision took shape from there.” 

He continues, “‘Wake Up’ was written at the height of the toilet paper buying frenzy. As usual, I was totally disgusted with humanity, and I needed to write about it. This song celebrates the reason we all got into metal/rock n roll in the first place. Music is a way of life that offers us freedom from the insane expectations of a sick society. While this video is our first foray into anything resembling fun or humor, it wholeheartedly delivers the sincere message of the song. TURN ON, TUNE IN, DROP OUT.”

Written at the beginning of the pandemic, “Forge Your Future” features three new songs that showcase SPIRIT ADRIFT at their strongest.  Recorded at Homewrecker Recording Studio with Ryan Bram at the helm, the tracks were handed over to the legendary Zeuss to handle the E.P.’s mixing and mastering. 

Garrett comments, “These songs, and this band, represent persevering through difficult times, staying true to your innermost self, and celebrating the life-affirming power of metal. We can’t wait to see you all live and in the flesh, in the meantime we hope you enjoy the tunes.”

Frontman Nate Garrett says: “On March 1, 2020, I relocated to the woods outside of Austin, Texas. Two weeks later, everything was locked down. I turned to the thing that has helped me navigate difficult situations for most of my life: writing music. I wrote and demoed a ton of songs over the course of the pandemic. The songs on this EP are the best of the bunch. Marcus, Preston, and I recorded these in March of 2021 at Homewrecker Recording Studio with Ryan Bram at the helm. Zeuss handled mixing and mastering, after lengthy discussions about Martin Birch, Tom Allom, Crowbar, and how important it is to carry forth the essence and spirit of heavy metal. Special thanks to our friend Cody Davis for the brilliant title. These songs, and this band, represent persevering through difficult times, staying true to your innermost self, and celebrating the life-affirming power of metal. We can’t wait to see you all live and in the flesh, in the meantime we hope you enjoy the tunes.”

From the start, SPIRIT ADRIFT was much more than an obsession for guitarist and vocalist Nate Garrett. It’s become a mission unto itself – a quest to re-cast the power and potential of melodic metal, doom and hard rock like the masters before him. With four albums behind Garrett and drummer Marcus Bryant, including 2020’s year-end-chart-topper “Enlightened in Eternity,” SPIRIT ADRIFT has vexed the legacies of Ozzy Osbourne and Metallica and cemented their own place in the pantheon.

Now, “Forge Your Future” finds SPIRIT ADRIFT spreading their wings and soaring past any notion of nostalgia. Tracks like “Wake Up” with its “Crazy Train” – esque drive, the mournful-yet-hopeful title track or the riff-ride of “Invisible Enemy” find Garrett & Co no longer students, but masters of their metallic game and torchbearers for a new generation of heshers, headbangers and heavy metal parking lot overlords.
