ENVOYS have been delivering their own blend of fiercely original post-metal to audiences in the UK and Europe since 2011. Starting life as a largely instrumental quartet, the band recorded and released debut album ‘Violescent’ themselves in 2013. Repeating this feat with 2016 sophomore album ‘Bliss’, their sound has evolved to feature prominent layers of vocals and a more refined, focussed sound, pairing soaring melodies with heavy, off-kilter technical riffage. Financing tours at home and abroad on the back of the success of ‘Violescent’, ENVOYS have become a familiar name on the math and post-rock circuit, proudly playing the first two StrangeForms festivals in their hometown of Leeds. With tours and festival appearances scheduled across the year in support of the new album, including the much lauded ArcTanGent festival, they will be out to do justice to the heavier side of Yorkshire’s experimental music scene.
