Junius have premiered the first single off their upcoming record Eternal Rituals For The Accretion Of Light, titled “The Queen’s Constellation”. Founder Joseph E. Martinez, who wrote and performed the entire LP, said of it:
“Eternal Rituals For The Accretion Of Light follows the Initiate’s path to transcendence, and knowing love’s power is a crucial step in this journey. In keeping with the brooding spirit of Junius, I decided to write a kind of dark, obscure fairy tale about verboten love. It contains some of the heaviest songs we’ve ever released and simultaneously some of the most delicate.”
The record is due in stores on March 3rd via Prosthetic Records. Pre-orders are now available and can be found at a number of outlets, listed after the song stream.
Junius will embark on a brief headlining run across the East Coast in April following the record’s release. Dates can be found below. Support acts on the run will be announced shortly.
