It may feel as though Kingston Upon Thames alternative rock outfit Arcane Roots have been around a long time, but Melancholia Hymns is just their second full-length record. Towing behind tried and true rock blueprints like Muse or Biffy Clyro, Arcane Roots also manage to incorporate elements of prog and technical metal for a thoroughly experimental rock sound. Melancholia Hymns is available on double vinyl LP.

UK 3 piece ARCANE ROOTS have so far, in their 10 year period, released 2 mini albums ('Left Fire' in 2011 and 'Heaven & Earth' in 2015) and a debut full length album ('Blood & Chemistry' in 2013). They have toured and played shows across the UK and Europe with the likes of Muse, Biffy Clyro, Enter Shikari, Jimmy Eat World, AWOL Nation, Fightstar and many more. They have also been an ever present at UK and European festivals from Download to BBK, Groezrock to Reading and Leeds.After a wait of nearly 4 years, ARCANE ROOTS return with their stunning, brand new, 2nd album 'Melancholia Hymns' The album release follows on from the first single 'Curtains', and much like that track, 'Melancholia Hymns' is full of ambition, electronica, riffs, strings, darkness and light. It is an album to lose yourself in completely, a complex musical journey for your mind and your heart. A record with so much love, care and attention that you can't help but feel the passion that has gone making it, and marvel at its scope and sheer size.
