Baltimore tech-metal outfit WAIT (We Are In Transit) have announced the details for their debut studio album. The new record, The End of Noise, will see a February 11th, 2022 release via The Artisan Era. WAIT first took shape when guitarist Charlie Eron partnered with Max Phelps (of Cynic and Defeated Sanity fame). The band released their self-titled EP in 2019, with bassist Alex Weber and drummer Anup Sastry rounding out the lineup at this point.
To give fans a taste of their upcoming debut full-length, WAIT have released the first single from the LP, titled “Lone Presence Supreme”. The group has also dropped a lyric video for the track.
“‘The End of Noise’ is a synonym for the stillness of the mind when one is either in a deep meditative state, asleep, or dead. “Noise” refers to the mental static one hears and feels resulting from a neverending barrage of stimuli,” the band comments on the new album. “In the process of writing The End of Noise, Charlie turned 30, and the typical existential crisis that occurs at that stage in life influenced the dramatic nature of the writing and lyrical content. While the previous EP could be described as esoteric and under-the-skin deep, ‘The End of Noise’ aims to conceptually drill to the very core of the Earth.”
