THESE COLORS FADE to Release 'Contemporary Tragedy'
One-man melodic post-hardcore band THESE COLORS FADE will release new album Contemporary Tragedy on January 29.
The brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Keelan Donahue, who handled everything from the music to the artwork, Contemporary Tragedy is the third release from THESE COLORS FADE. The album follows the 2020 EP Pentamerous Laceration and the debut full-length The Attrition Complex (2018). Keelan’s newest effort takes the listener on a 10-track journey that blurs the lines between progressive metal, avante garde and abstract thought.
Keelan comments on the album, “‘Contemporary Tragedy’ is about loss and how it transforms people in different ways. It was originally intended to be a short story told in album form. Instead, it became a theme album touching on not only loss, but what a person can become after losing what they believe to be everything. A combination of progressive and posthardcore births interesting and unique musicianship while pushing genre boundaries. Over 800 hours were spent writing and recording this album.”
