[press release] Dark-wave outfit Junius has premiered a new song, “A Universe without Stars,” exclusively today on GuitarWorld.com [or stream below]. The track is featured on the band’s highly anticipated new album, Reports from the Threshold of Death, which is set for release on October 25 via Prosthetic Records.
With only weeks to go before the release of Junius’ third studio album, Reports from the Threshold of Death, rave reviews have already started rolling in. See what critics are saying…
“If shoegaze doom metal was a genre, Junius would most certainly be the kings of it” - Guitarworld.com
“Painting their songs with shades of Joy Division, A Perfect Circle, Tangerine Dream and Khoma... the record is steeped in potent darkness, and the further you slip into their world, the less you want to claw your way back out.” - Alternative Press
“Often immersively fuck-yeah heavy, but always vocally discernible, thoughtful, melody-oriented and (gulp...) pretty.” - Decibel
“Junius has met all expectations set by their debut with an album that is thought-provoking and challenging, yet ultimately very rewarding.” - Outburn
Reports from the Threshold of Death can be pre-ordered in a variety of bundles (vinyl, t-shirt, cd) HERE and on limited edition vinyl HERE.
