FURY WEEKEND release new alt rock single ‘Velvet Rain’ out now, new album ‘Afterglow’ out on 25th May
fterglow features twelve tracks and features collaborations with Nouveau Arcade, Maxthor, Ravdina, PRIZM, The Anix, Ollie Wride, Young Medicine, Platforms, and King Protea.
The album is Synthwave meets Alternative Rock fusion, mixing the best of both worlds. Featuring singles such as “Delirious” and “Illumination” both of which combine classic rock with the Future Rock writing style and vocals of The Anix. FM-84 frontman, Ollie Wride, also features on the album with the fervent track “Soul Survivor.” Afterglow covers the full gamut, from Classic Rock to Electro Pop, Alternative to Synthwave with a bit of Post Punk and Goth sprinkled in between. With his ability to blend synthesizers, drums, guitars, and the vocal contributions of a wide variety of contributors from multiple genres Afterglow is another shining example of a producer still at the top of his game.
Dropping with the pre-order announcement is the Alternative, Rock, Synthwave single “Velvet Rain” (feat. Ravdina). Fury Weekend blends a mix of harmonic synthesizers, steady rhythms, heavy guitar solos, and bass together with the gritty vocals of St. Petersburg based Metalcore band Ravdina. The single is an atmospheric but turbulent soundscape showcasing Fury Weekend‘s abilities as a producer.
The Fury Weekend project was created when Belarus-based Ars Nikonov chose to combine his love of classic rock, electronic music, and ‘80s culture into a forward-thinking music venture. The result is a dystopian synthwave sound that blends bright synth melodies and gritty guitar work into a singular music vision of the future.
The uniqueness of Fury Weekend should come as no surprise given the artist’s background, which involves ambitious projects ranging from industrial to post-rock. Diversant: 13, Cold in May, Martian Love, Seanine, and Tribal A.D. are some of the many names that fill Ars’ creative resume, and each of those has given the creator the experience and tools needed to make an impact with his retro-futuristic synthwave project.
Ravdina is an up and coming four-piece Metalcore band from Saint-Petersburg.
