Mesmerizing post-metal outfit JUNIUS are excited to reveal their first new music in over three years with their new full-length album "Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light" (ERAL) due out March 3, 2017 via PROSTHETIC RECORDS.

The album marks the completion of their conceptual trilogy which began in 2009 with their evoking LP "The Martyrdom of a Catastrophist", depicted by Rolling Stone as "a perfect hybrid of Neurosis and The Smiths". Releasing a one-off album "Reports from the Threshold of Death" in 2011 to commemorate their signing with Prosthetic Records, JUNIUS then returned to their conceptual project with their critically acclaimed 2014 EP "Days of the Fallen Sun", lauded by Pitchfork as their "strongest and most sensuous work to date".

Recorded, mixed and mastered with longtime friend and producer Will Benoit (Caspian, Rosetta), "Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light" takes inspiration from Elisabeth Haich's autobiography "Initiation", whilst touching on topics including karma, reincarnation and spiritual development across it's ten melodically divine tracks. Following the departure of former members Mike Repasch-Nieves (guitars), the album was written and performed entirely by vocalist/guitarist Joseph E. Martinez and drummer Dana Filloon, and also features guest appearances from Drew Speziale (Circle Takes the Square) and Gian Minardi (General Public).
Descending from a spark of light comes the spellbinding trio inAeona, whose sound combines heartfelt melodies, emotionally stirring post-metal and spacey, industrial undertones. Consisting of vocalist/guitarist Bridge, bassist Dave and drummer James, the group hails from the heart of Boston. Combining their shared passions for music and creativity, the trio began playing local shows with an elaborate light show to accent their haunting tones and give audiences unique and intense live experiences. The trio soon hit the road on a self-booked tour playing anywhere and everywhere possible while showcasing their self-released debut EP "Blue Sky All Day," which featured artwork from longtime friend, Junius guitarist Michael Repasch-Nieves.

Described as having "the bombastic theatricality of Muse with the vastness of Russian Circles gently mixed with the ferocity of Helms Alee" (Bloody Disgusting), the band gained a passionate following of supporters as they connected with audiences across the country. Eventually, inAeona caught the eye of Prosthetic Records, who asked the band appear on a 2014 label showcase alongside Junius and So Hideous. After a stunning performance at Brooklyn's famed Saint Vitus Bar, the label agreed to release their forthcoming debut full-length "Force Rise the Sun" internationally.

Bridge describes "Force Rise the Sun" as "ultimately a sad but beautiful love story of loss and change, of the universe and ourselves, of being elated to be here but knowing it will all go away, and trying to love better and closer in the time we all have." While the rising sun is often connected to feelings of hope and fresh starts, it can also be a symbol of passing time, and as such, the title represents their urgent fight to exist and strive as a band.
