Canada's most exciting metal band, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS, recently announced the upcoming release of their game-changing sixth studio album, Phantoma, out May 10, 2024 via Napalm Records. On this stunning conceptual release, listeners join story protagonist Phantoma, a Phase 4/Network Tier 0 unit - model A, on an inspiring yet harrowing journey as she traverses the new age of AI on a dystopian, near-future planet Earth.

Phantoma follows the band's 2020 breakout album, Abyss, which won the JUNO Award for Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year after debuting at #1 on the US Current Hard Music and Top New Artist charts, and was dubbed by Bandcamp as "a mandatory listen" upon release.

Today, following the release of the wondrous first single, "Green & Glass", UNLEASH THE ARCHERS are back with an addictive, synth-infused second single, "Ghosts In The Mist". Blending modern guitar stylings with 80s arena rock vibes, the track boasts one of the album's most sing-along-worthy choruses and heaviest breakdowns. Check out the track today alongside a high-energy performance video!

UNLEASH THE ARCHERS says about "Ghosts In The Mist":

"If you saw us at any of the shows we played last year then you might recognize this track! We filmed the music video at Mad With Power Fest, ProgPower USA, and at our show in Montreal, Canada, and it is full of so many friends and familiar faces! We love including these particular festivals in the video because they have both been supporters of ours for a very long time, and we hope we will get to play them again and again as the years go on.

The track is one of the more synth-heavy songs on the album, but it's also got some rad death vocals from Grant that you can bang your head to, so we hope there will be a little something for everyone to enjoy here!"

Also, fans located anywhere who pre-order via any Napalm webstore, IndieMerch or Bandcamp will also be entered to win a ticket to the official Phantoma virtual listening party! See the band's social media accounts for additional information.

Intertwining reality with imagination, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS were inspired to utilize elements of AI during the creation of Phantoma, in keeping with its innovative theme. Frontwoman and lyricist Brittney Slayes conjured the album's concept in 2021; before the swarm of pressing commentary surrounding AI began to reach an all-time high. With the band's one-of-a-kind blend of power metal, traditional heavy metal, modern prog, and pop sensibilities, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS spin a web of sharp musicality, high sci-fi concept, and important social commentary about discovering the brutal truths behind the manufactured sheen of social media posturing.

Mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen, and with lead guitarist Andrew Kingsley at the helm as both principal songwriter and producer, Phantoma is an exciting advancement in UNLEASH THE ARCHERS' songwriting and storytelling mastery, and a giant leap forward in their towering musical trajectory.
