Junius ERAL cover
Post-Metal outfit Junius are back with their first new material in over three years with the full-length album “Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light” (ERAL) due out on March 3rd, 2017!

“ERAL” marks the completion of their conceptual trilogy which began in 2009 with their evoking LP “The Martyrdom of a Catastrophist”, depicted by Rolling Stone as “a perfect hybrid of Neurosis and The Smiths” followed by 2011's “Reports From the Thresholds of Death”. Junius' latest release, the critically acclaimed 2014 EP “Days of the Fallen Sun”, was lauded by Pitchfork as their “strongest and most sensuous work to date”.

Recorded, mixed and mastered with longtime friend and producer Will Benoit (Caspian, Rosetta, Ellie Goulding), “Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light” takes inspiration from Elisabeth Haich's autobiography “Initiation”, whilst touching on topics including karma, reincarnation and spiritual development across it's ten melodically divine tracks.

Following the departure of former member Mike Repasch-Nieves (guitars), the album was entirely wrote and performed by vocalist/guitarist Joseph E. Martinez. The album also features guest appearances from Drew Speziale (Circle Takes the Square) and Gian Minardi (General Public).
