Lodestar return with brand new single/video ‘Surrender To The Tide’.

After 27 years the experimental rock band Lodestar return with a brand new single Surrender To The Tide.

Cataclysmic, cultish and crushing Surrender To The Tide leaves an indelible impression, and is taken from their forthcoming album Zonen, released on 17th May.

“The song’s lyrics describe personal struggle suggested by the oppressive scale of the guitars. The crashing tidal wave of the chorus riff implying powerlessness in the face of elemental forces.” – Lodestar

“The idea behind the video was to make something that was hypnotic and trance-like, enigmatic, stark and with gravitas, that gradually built tension to suit the pace of the song. The shadows and the lighting were almost more important than the band. We wanted to show performance, but in a non-typical way so it’s the opposite of the usual fast-cut performance video. The imagery is inspired by cults and the occult, film noir, old psychological horror films, Lynchian-style lighting and 70’s music footage that was filmed using analogue effects, so it’s kind of trippy in a slightly bleak and disturbing way.”

Lodestar was originally formed in 1996 by three members of legendary British rap-rock band Senser (Heitham Al-Sayed, Alan ‘Lord Hagos’ Haggarty and John Morgan) to fulfil their hunger for a heavier musical palette.

After releasing two killer singles, an eponymous album hailed by the NME as ‘a modern metal masterpiece’ and touring with the likes of Tool, the band ceased operating in 1997.

2024 sees Lodestar resurrected and joined by Charlie Beddoes (Rub Ultra, Trash Palace, Nasty Little Lonely) on bass. Their new material is a beautiful, brutal and esoteric mix of doomy grooves, gutsy onslaughts and eccentric wanderings through a sweetly sinister landscape, inspired by prescient visions, occult symbolism and subtle sensuality.
