ENGINEERS OFFERS FREE DOWNLOAD OF NEW TRACK "FIGHT OR FLIGHT" FROM UPCOMING ALBUM "ALWAYS RETURNING"
"Always Returning" out September 16 via Kscope
ENGLAND - Engineers will release its upcoming fourth studio album, Always Returning, on September 16 through Kscope. The band is now offering a free download of the new track "Fight or Flight" via the Kscope website at: http://www.kscopemusic.com/2014/07/10/engineers-offer-free-download/. The song is also streaming on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/-MxRgFAWjMo.
Additionally, a teaser video containing snippets of the tracks "Searched for Answers," "Always Returning" plus "Fight or Flight" can be seen on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GswJTg4ykGw.
Written and recorded alone at home in York by multi-instrumentalist, Mark Peters, before being coated with deft brush strokes of ambient electronica by celebrated German artist/producer, Ulrich Schnauss, Always Returning is a record that unhurriedly drifts in and out of focus, hinting at themes without ever making them so explicit that the listener can't map out their own personal interpretations. It delivers an overall emotional heft that's impossible to pull away from.

Engineers - with London based drummer and composer, Matthew Linley, rounding out the line-up - has been creating mesmerizing music with brilliantly shaded guitar textures and teasing lyrical ambiguities for over 10 years across three albums - 2005's debut Engineers ("hypnotic lullabies from beautific Brit newcomers" **** Q), 2009's Three Fact Fader ("a blistering statement of intent" **** The Sunday Times), and 2010's swift follow-up In Praise Of More ("should be given to most UK bands as an example of in making an album that is a joy to behold" 8/10 Clash).
Stay tuned for more information on Engineers and Always Returning, out this September on Kscope.
