Zeal & Ardor have shared a fifth single from their forthcoming third album, in the form of the moody, brooding Golden Liar.
Frontman Manuel Gagneux says, “Golden Liar is one of the tracks on this record I’m most proud of. Unlike singles released previously from the new album, it’s a slow burn. Rather than using harsh tones to convey heaviness, it uses lyrics and atmosphere to convey weight. It’s both smoke and fire.”
Zeal & Ardor, the album, will be released on February 11 via MVKA. With Gagneux performing all instruments save for drums, the 14-track record was recorded by Marc Obrist and Manuel Gagneux at Hutch Sounds and mixed & mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio.
