“Follow The Signs”, the new Andrew Pulaski-directed video from the Chicago-based progressive metal hybrid BORN OF OSIRIS, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s third full-length album, “The Discovery”, which sold around 6,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 87 on The Billboard 200 chart. The group’s previous CD, 2009’s “A Higher Place”, entered the charts at No. 73 with first-week sales of over 6,000 copies.
“The Discovery” was released on March 22, 2011 via Sumerian Records. The CD was recorded at BOTA Studio in Lake In The Hills, Illinois and was mixed by Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, TRIVIUM, DEVILDRIVER).
When asked by AOL‘s Noisecreep if the band toned down the technicality of the playing and arrangements for the new album or if they dialed it up, BORN OF OSIRIS guitarist Lee McKinney said, “I would say it’s more and less at the same time. The instrumentals are more technical, as far as playing each part. As for structure and arrangements, we tried to organize our songs a little better. We wanted to bring back key parts and have more structure in our songs. That being said, these songs are still by far harder to play than any of our other material. We really pushed ourselves with this one.”
BORN OF OSIRIS recently parted ways with guitarist Jason Richardson. The band said in a statement, “This was something that just needed to happen. We will be a more creative, energized, and focused unit as a result.”
