The side project of Mastadon drummer Brann Dailor, Arcadea, will officially release their debut album on June 16th.

The band consisting of Brann Dailor, guitarist & keyboardist Core Atoms (Zruda), guitarist Raheem Amlani (Withered) on synth have inked a deal with Relapse Records to release the record. Pre-orders and new music will be announced in the coming weeks.

Unlike their other bands, Arcadea uses only keyboards in a unique blend of organic drums and psychedelic synthesizers. The music is at once electronic but not electronica, synthetic but not processed, heavy but not metal.

The album envisions a future 5 billion years from now, where the impending collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets. Where cold, distant moons pledge alliance to new suns and expanding gas giants implode into black holes. Ancient drones, forever adrift, record toxic tales of love between dying stars. Where lifeforms in suspended animation, dream among the ice rings of Saturn and cosmic war wages among gods and planets. It is in this universe that Arcadea reign supreme as the last surviving space wizards since the final extinction.
