Pleiades release new single 'Amos Clift'


As we draw ever closer to their debut album, Manchester based Art-Rock / Post Hardcore outfit Pleiades have today released the lead single, ‘Amos Clift’.

Acting as a centerpiece for the album, ‘Amos Clift’ replicates Pleiades' live energy with frenetic urgency and confidence bleeding through every pacing moment.

Talking through the concept of Amos Clift, vocalist Andrew Calderbank shares - “Amos Clift is really a track that sits at the core of the storytelling in ‘Affinity With’. The story is told from the perspective of lighthouse keeper Amos Clift, observing the Egg War of 1863 in San Francisco where food shortages caused by the population boom from California’s Gold Rush lead to an all out war between rival gangs over seabird eggs on the nearby Farallon Islands.

Andrew continues to mention - ”Clift’s character is used as a guide to recount how desperation and hunger led to mass greed and violence, holding a magnifying glass to the inherent and destructive flaws of human nature.”

The bands upcoming debut album ‘Affinity With’ will be released on Friday 29th September 2023 and pre-orders are now available right HERE. Affinity With’ is inspired by stories of empathy and human nature as Pleiades set out to be the sculptors of a bold new sonic landscape.
