New Album, Where Owls Know My Name, Out Now

RIVERS OF NIHIL has released their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name, today via Metal Blade Records! To purchase the album, please visit: metalblade.com/riversofnihil

To coincide with Where Owls Know My Name's release, RIVERS OF NIHIL has launched a new video for "A Home", directed by David Brodsky (www.davidsbrodsky.com) - which can be viewed on KNAC.COM HERE.

RIVERS OF NIHIL comments: "Once again we have partnered up with the legendary Dave Brodsky and the rest of the fine folks at MyGoodEye Visuals to bring you this video for "A Home" from our new record Where Owls Know My Name out today! This video was shot in our hometown of Reading, Pennsylvania, so going along with the song title this video feels very much at home for us. Catch us out on tour for the next five weeks across the US and Canada with DYING FETUS, THY ART IS MURDER, ENETEPRISE EARTH, and SANCTION!"

Where Owls Know My Name reunites RIVERS OF NIHIL with Monarchy producer Carson Slovak (AUGUST BURNS RED, THE LAST TEN SECONDS OF LIFE) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as ENTOMBED's Left Hand Path and SUFFOCATION's Effigy Of The Forgotten. The result is the Reading, PA quintet's most visceral, accomplished, and satisfying offering to-date.

Guitarist Brody Uttley comments:

"This record is RIVERS OF NIHIL being exactly who we want to be. Many bands get stuck in a comfortable routine of releasing the same album over and over again. Constantly relying on the same familiar formula may work for some bands, but it does not work for us. Music is art, and art is ever-changing. Without change, there is no progress. Without progress, the very fire that powers art and expression will die. This record is the sound of where we come from, where we are, and where we are going."

Adds bassist/vocalist Adam Biggs:

"This time around, the lyrics feel a little more personal than on previous albums. The story picks up several millennia after the events of Monarchy, where one person still remains alive, chosen by the planet to be the sole intelligent witness of its ultimate fate. But Where Owls Know My Name is less about overarching narrative than our previous albums. The scenario is just a backdrop for the more emotional material we tried to put forth this time around. Ultimately, this is an album about loss, getting older, and reaching a point where death becomes a much more present part of your life."
