London prog rockers Temples On Mars have released an animated video for their brand new single Sleepwalking towards extinctionwhich you can watch below.
The new single is taken from the band’s upcoming album, The Murder Time Plotwhich will be released later this year.
“We are thrilled to finally be back with our brand new single Sleepwalking towards extinction“, declares the band. “This is the first single from our brand new record, The Murder Time Plot, and the song explores the subject that as a species, humans are destroying each other along with our beautiful planet. We are all so glued to the alternate reality that we have built ourselves to fill the time between birth and death that we are literally collectively sleepwalking towards extinction.
Sleepwalking towards extinction features drummer Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails) appearing due to Covid issues. Freese received a demo and liked what he heard.
Guitars and bass were recorded at various private studios in London. James Donaldson worked on vocals with longtime collaborator Paul Matthews (I Am Giant) and mixing and production by Darren Carikas at Ghost Machine Studios. The disc was mastered by Ted Jensen (Architects, Bring Me The Horizon, Gojira) at Sterling Sound in New York.
