Blessed Share New Track + Video “Centre”

Canadian art-rock band Blessed – comprised of Drew Riekman, Reuben Houweling, Jake Holmes, and Mitchell Trainor – recently announced their forthcoming EP iii, set for release on February 19th, 2021 via Flemish Eye Records. Today they are sharing new single “Centre,” an explosive track that clings to life with a driving, percussive frenzy that relents only once it’s eclipsed the five-minute mark with a dizzying, white-knuckle climax. “Centre” was mixed by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck, Metz, Preoccupations, Alvvays), and comes with a Mitch Huttema-directed video.

Drew Riekman says of the track, “Centre ruminates on decision making and scrutinizing every aspect of your existence. Wondering if the path you’re on is the best place for you in an emotional and personal health sense. Imposter syndrome is difficult to overcome, especially coming from a smaller community. I commonly won’t reach out to people because I feel I’m worth less of their time than others.
