“Can You Hear The Silence” is a strong contender for the heaviest track on the ‘Cold Sanctuary’ EP and truly showcases what makes the band. The new single touches on themes of today’s social environment and humanities unawareness. Vocalist Patty Goodman says…”We live in a world where opinions and views are forced down our throat – when no one really has any idea whats going on.”
2019 will see the band’s ceaseless efforts coalesce with the release of their 2nd EP ‘Cold Sanctuary’. With their first EP establishing a commentary on the world around them, ‘Cold Sanctuary’ is a reflection on decades of experience and work among the collective that is MIRRORS. Bear witness!
‘Cold Sanctuary’ was Produced by Ionei Heckenberg (Ocean Sleeper), was Mixed and Mastered by Lance Prenc (Gravemind, Alpha Wolf, Pridelands) and the Vocals were recorded by Scottie Simpson (Alpha Wolf).
Formed in late 2016 by Gippsland natives Patty Goodman (vocals) and Tyson Taifer (guitar), metalcore outfit Mirrors quickly turned the eyes and ears of Australian listeners towards Regional Victoria with the release of their debut EP “Fool’s Paradise” in 2017. The 6 track release revealed the sound and delivery of a unit that had been functioning for many years, but after a mere 12 months of their existence they were invited to play alongside Parkway Drive, Architects and many more at the hallowed Unify festival.
Backed by fellow long time friend Jake Mackin (bass) and recently enlisted Melbourne based drummer Rob Brens, the four piece followed up their EP with the release of the single Circus, which showed a staggering step up in sound, maturity and production. From here, MIRRORS set about bringing this evolution to clubs around Australia, supporting the likes of Thornhill, The Devil Wears Prada, Ocean Grove and Alpha Wolf just to name a few.
The first single and title track off the upcoming ‘Cold Sanctuary’ EP earned the band play on triple j’s Short. Fast. Loud., rotation on The Faction, an add to Spotify’s own Homegrown & Heavy playlist and Apple Music’s Heaps Heavy playlist. As well as making the rounds across Australian airwaves, MIRRORS will be taking their brand new EP on the road with them in support of Alpha Wolf’s ‘Fault Tour’ alongside Daybreak. The tour will visit Lansdowne Hotel in Sydney on Friday May 24th, Crowbar in Brisbane on Saturday May 25th, Enigma Bar in Adelaide on Friday May 31st and Stay Gold in Melbourne on Saturday June 1st.
