Melbourne metal stalwarts Void Of Vision are confirming details of their new record today, due out this Friday via UNFD. Titled “Hyperdaze (Redux)”, this re-release of the band’s 2019 album “Hyperdaze” comes complete with a heaving list of guests collaborating across every track. Following recent cuts with Thornhill’s Jacob Charlton and Ecca Vandal released in the lead up to its announce, the rest of “Hyperdaze (Redux)” finds VOV collaborating with the likes of Jamie Hails (Polaris), Jon Deiley (Northlane), Lucas Woodland (Holding Absence), Garrett Russell (Silent Planet) & more.
Void Of Vision vocalist Jack Bergin declares how the “Redux” release finds the intensity of the original “Hyperdaze” completely dialled up on a notch:
“The people I hand picked for each track not only bring their own influence on board, but also build on what was already such an emotionally heavy release. It’s fully shaken the album up and spat it out somehow even more powerful than the original. We are super proud that we could create such a bold and collaborative project and still have it translate as we originally intended it to”.
After revealing a new music video for ‘Decay’ ft. Ecca Vandal earlier this week, today’s album announcement comes alongside another taste of the release with the reveal of ‘Splinter’ ft. Loathe’s Kadeem France.
“Hyperdaze (Redux)” drops in full this Friday, March 5 through UNFD. Fresh from being announced on The Amity Affliction’s Australian headline tour, VOV announced two Melbourne headline shows of their own that sold in a matter of hours. The band plays two nights at Sooki Lounge later this month.
On crafting the release throughout the throes of lockdown, Bergin shares how he curated such an epic list of guests:
“After reaching out to some of our close peers and friends in the music industry we quickly locked some names in on their respective tracks to get the ball rolling”, he explains.”From there we looked at the 2020 Void Of Vision touring schedule that never came to be and reached out to a bunch of the names we were supposed to be sharing stages with. Overall we felt free to get creative and branch out and that lead to hitting up some people up outside of our realm (Ecca, Up Late) that could really take a track and flip it on its head”.
Throughout February, Void Of Vision began teasing the project with the release of reimagined versions of fan-favorite “Hyperdaze” tracks, from Jacob Charlton’s appearance on “Year Of The Rat” and an unlikely team-up with none other than Ecca Vandal on “Decay”. The remainder of “Hyperdaze (Redux)” offers an epic mix of sheer chaos, pulsing EDM, lighter shades and more, as VOV and collaborators alike each flirt with the edge of possibility. With its release in September 2019, the original “Hyperdaze” seized a stark brand of bleakness akin only to Void Of Vision. On top of knockout global album reviews upon its release, the band went on to support Northlane around Australia, and took to festivals including Heaven & Hell, Schema and UNIFY before sneaking in a headliner across Australia and Japan in early 2020.
