Louisiana Post-punk band Ambassador have dropped a cathartic new video for “Spasma” via Metal Injection from their album, ‘Care Vale.’ The video can be watched at THIS LOCATION [embedded below].
On February 24th, the band released the highly requested vinyl edition of their critically acclaimed album ‘Care Vale.’ Two limited edition color variants are available on Bandcamp, with a third color variant will also be available exclusively through New Orleans Vinyl Club. New Orleans Vinyl Club features records curated and pressed in the musical mecca of New Orleans by New Orleans Record Press.
‘Eluding the stale tropes of modern rock, Ambassador evoke a sense of maturity and sonic exploration. Their emotional and vulnerable music is rooted in post rock, alternative metal and Southern sludge. This unique blend of sounds has led to comparisons to bands like Russian Circles, Katatonia, Thrice, and even Depeche Mode.
Although their music might be broadly categorized as heavy rock, the shoe-gazing textures and ethereal lyrics unearth fond memories of the post-punk revival and alternative metal of the 2000’s. After playing to mixed genre bills in the dive bars that pepper their Bayou State, Ambassador have won over a wide variety of fans from doom metal freaks to heavy hearted hipsters. Now, these lifelong musicians further wade into the vast sonic ocean to help swell the tide of a new alternative.
The follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album Belly of the Whale features some of Ambassador’s most captivating material yet. This new record benefits from both a lineup shift and the pressure of recording live at Hightower Recordings with James Whitton in just two days. The mastering by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege furthers the sumptuous music within. ‘Care Vale’ demonstrates a finely crafted step forward artistically for the band. It gives them a more aggressive, atmospheric, and ‘live’ energy. Say what you will about these Southern boys, but ‘Care Vale’ is a bold next step.’
