Published Nov 02, 2018Japanese post-hardcore greats Envy had an uncertain future in 2016 when frontman Tetsuya Fukagawa parted ways with the band. Fortunately, things have changed — Fukagawa is back, the band's lineup has been reinvigorated, and they've got two brand new songs, with more on the way.
Today (November 2), the band released a two-song EP called Alnair in August through their longtime label Temporary Residence Ltd.
The songs both point to Envy's past, with "Dawn and Gaze" offering a seven-minute build and "Marginalized Thread" delivering a more to-the-point blast of vintage skramz.
Listen to both Alnair in August tracks below. Envy will release a new album in 2019.
