Set Before Us Announces new album, “Vitae” Out August 31

Set Before Us

Swedish alt-melodic metalcore pioneers Set Before Us will release their upcoming debut full-length album entitled Vitae on August 31, 2018 via Eclipse Records. The album was produced by Dino Medanhodzic (Smash into Pieces, Adept, The Unguided) at Radionika Studios. The album art was designed by Liftamountain. See below for the full track listing…

Vitae features eleven brand new songs that re-write the boundaries of metalcore as a genre. The album covers a wide variety of subject matter as well. From the inspirational “Ignite” being written about the confidence of chasing your dreams, to the painfully-personal “Identity” which tackles the negative impact of being raised by emotionally distant parents, the band refuses to hold back and opens up emotionally and spiritually to deliver a truly amazing album that will leave a lasting impression upon the metal scene worldwide.

The band have also revealed the first music video from the album for the first single “Ignite”. The video was directed by Liftamountain as well, and shot on the island nature preserve of Torö, Sweden.

“Even though the video does not have a story, in a sense it feels like you’re on a journey throughout the video” says bassist Hampus Andersson. “For myself, I’m just fascinated at Liftamountain’s use of light (or lack thereof), and how he got these amazing shots.” Guitarist Jesper Nilsson continues, “we wanted to focus upon the contrasts of nature such as serenity, energy, calm, and chaos because musically and lyrically, Ignite is all of that. We hope it translates through the screen.”
