New Orleans post-doom quartet Fauns has released the first single, »Ashen«, off their upcoming sophomore EP »Surcease«, due out independently next month.

The band comments: “»Ashen« paints a dystopian vision of inevitability: Our world in orbit smoldering with the absurdity of its religions, the atrocities of it nations, the ignorance of its past, and the repudiation of its sciences… for eternity.”

Formed in 2018 from the remnants of disbanded projects, Fauns offers a grievous blend of down-tuned riffs and virulent growls enveloped in a sea of dense atmosphere. With lyrics expressing deep disgust and utter disappointment in humanity, the quartet explores themes related to the human condition, the ways of man, and his inability to change course.
