It’s no secret that The Contortionist are about to deliver one of the most anticipated albums of the year for prog fans. In just a few short weeks, Clairvoyant will descend upon us. To make that wait easier, they have released a brand new song! Clocking in at just over six minutes, “Return to Earth” is a somewhat morose tune that oozes atmosphere. You can see the video and listen to the song right here, right now:
If you saw the video for “Reimagined”, you’ll notice that some of the same locations from that video are present in “Return to Earth.” The placement of the members is quite possibly identical, but the overgrowth and decay have increased. Does this tie into the themes of both songs? While not the first time this has been done, I always enjoy seeing the tie-ins across videos from the same record.
What do you think of the new song? Sound off in the comments and be sure to follow The Contortionist on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. They are heading out on tour with Between The Buried And Me, Toothgrinder, and Polyphia this fall so be sure to catch them when they arrive in your city!
