Out Now!


Supporting Caligula's Horse

"Progressive music needs albums that push the envelope and challenge conventional thinking...we can only hope that it doesn't take another eight years for [Earthside] to make their next move."

Blabbermouth


"'Let the Truth Speak' is a magnificent journey ripe with philosophical weight and creative wonderment."

Metal Injection


"A work of art on a whole other level."

The Prog Mind


"This is not an album to sleep on."

Sonic Perspectives

Progressive metal auteurs EARTHSIDE have released their long-awaited sophomore studio album, 'Let the Truth Speak', which is out today on Music Theories/Mascot Label Group.



Listen/ Stream here


Clocking in at nearly 80 minutes in duration, the new LP sees the band return with their first full-length effort since 2015's 'A Dream In Static'. Boasting singles like "We Who Lament", "Pattern of Rebirth", and "Let the Truth Speak", Earthside once again brings a formidable cavalcade of collaborators - including Daniel Tompkins (TesseracT), AJ Channer (Fire From The Gods), and Baard Kolstad (Leprous), to name a few.


“A Dream In Static was more of an *I* album,” reflects guitarist and orchestrator Jamie van Dyck. “Each of us in our own way was engaging in topics of self-actualization and the fear of never quite becoming. Let The Truth Speak, however, turns its focus to the *We*. Within months of releasing ADIS, the global landscape had changed to where issues of far more consequence than our own individual dreams coming true were tugging at us. We became far more consumed with the trajectory of humanity as a whole than our own legacies therein.”


In addition to the release of 'Let the Truth Speak', Earthside is thrilled to announce that they will be supporting Caligula's Horse on the band's upcoming 2024 North American tour this winter. See below for a complete list of dates!

EARTHSIDE:

In 2015, four young and irresponsibly ambitious musicians released their heartfelt understanding of truth in A Dream In Static—a rare and uncompromising debut of emotional gravitas, unconstrained creativity, and song craft well beyond the artists’ individual ages.


8 long years removed from their critically show-stopping entrance, the idealistic thinkers and feelers in Earthside found themselves in a different world entirely … or, perhaps, a world more honest and unhinged than they and many others had bargained for.


“It isn’t that things are really different now.” drummer Ben Shanbrom says. “It’s that the veil has been pulled back and we’re able to see that the narratives we’ve grown up with are riddled with holes. The people we’ve celebrated have glaring flaws and the binary sides we’ve identified with since grade school—when push came to shove—didn’t stand for what they spoke of. It’s unnerving to suddenly had the feeling that nothing was quite what you understood it to be, and that there’s little you can do as an individual to make things better."


Artists strive to never lose touch with their inner child—that wide-eyed amazement that comes from experiencing a goosebump-inducing chord progression, and that persistent urge to ask “why?” when the answer offered isn’t sufficient. Following the ADIS album cycle, the members of Earthside began writing their next record immersed in this fiery inspiration … in a way that was both unfamiliar and detrimental to their day-to-day lives.


"This album almost destroyed our lives and friendships,” keyboardist and co-orchestrator Frank Sacramone confides. "It's insanity, but it is beautiful.”


Years of recording and scrutinizing, a pandemic, and nearly 80 minutes of music later, the group’s idealistic ambition and absurd commitment to quality had all but broken them. But good can come from the abrasiveness of confronting the truth and humbling oneself as a result of what we do not fully know and have only assumed.
