Northlane have returned with new single 'Rot', their first release with new frontman Marcus Bridge. The video is available to watch on YouTube now, and the track has been released digitally worldwide.
'Rot' (produced via Skype by long-time collaborator Will Putney) was written and recorded by Marcus, guitarists Jon Deiley and Josh Smith, bassist Alex Milovic and drummer Nic Pettersen after a public audition process that saw almost 2,000 hopefuls apply for the position. The 23-year-old singer from Sydney's first tour will be a mammoth 21 huge shows in 21 days across Europe supporting Parkway Drive.
Fuelled by the critical and popular acclaim for 2013 sophomore album Singularity, Northlane toured the world twice over 18 months before coming home for a victorious sell-out tour in May / June. The album received glowing reviews and accolades across the world, including J Award and ARIA Award nominations, and awards in the Short Fast Loud, Blunt Magazine and The Racket end-of-year polls.
But during a five-month rest and writing break, frontman Adrian Fitipaldes left the band citing mental and physical exhaustion, prompting an open audition process which began in September. The band spent weeks painstakingly trawling through submissions; Marcus' video – which is still on YouTube having amassed tens of thousands of views – grabbed their attention and his talent, ideas and attitude make him a natural fit.
