Johannesburg, South Africa: next week is a big one for Deity’s Muse, local progressive rockers, as the band embarks on another UK tour. This time, Deity’s Muse is joining the UK’s own Monuments for a number of shows, including a spot at UK Tech Fest.
To send off on a high note, Deity’s Muse release a new music video today: ‘Sleep / Escape’. The video is just another delightful offering from the recently released Lungs Full EP which the tour is promoting.
Sleep / Escape
The band’s frontman offers some words about what this song represents, musically and thematically:
“This track is very dream-like in its sonic delivery with its spacey, open beginning but it explodes with some big, chugging riffs followed by one of our most melodic choruses. The lyrics speak of a protagonist who is grappling with a tough situation until an epiphany arrives to him one night in the form of a dream. The emotions are very high on this one and I feel like ‘Sleep / Escape’ is musically loaded with dynamics.” ~ Wayne Boucher

Wayne offers some comment on the teaming up with Monuments:
“We’ve been big fans of the music the Monuments guys make for a long time now. We’re really excited about joining them as main support on their UK summer tour with our new EP, Lungs Full. Similarly we’re stoked about seeing the Monuments lads performing tracks from Phronesis live. We’ll also be making our first appearance at TechFest and what an incredible line-up that is! To top it off, we’re lucky enough to have secured our own headliner show in London to close off the tour. Getting opportunities like this as a band based on the tip of Africa is really something quite special to us and we can’t wait to show the UK crowds what we’re about.” ~ Wayne Boucher (vocals/guitar, Deity’s Muse)
