belmont ep

After nearly topping Billboard's Heatseekers & Alternative New Artist charts with their 2018 self-titled debut and critically praised follow-up 2021's "Aftermath," Chicago's red-hot rock band BELMONT are near to release their eagerly anticipated third record, "Liminal," on April 12th with Pure Noise Records

In anticipation of their upcoming record release, Chicago's rising rock band BELMONT has released a brand new, anthemic pop-punk single called "Dark Paradise." The track is featured on the band's forthcoming 3rd album, "Liminal," that's due out April 12th from Pure Noise Records

Discussing the new song, guitarist Jason Inguagiato says: "'Dark Paradise' is one of the more emotionally cathartic songs on the record. To me, it’s like the spiritual successor to 'Advanced Darkness,' the final track off our last record 'Aftermath.' The chorus melodically and harmonically has an uplifting energy to it while somehow still maintaining the somber and existential undertones that are characteristic of this record. To me, this song is a piece of the ‘Liminal’ puzzle that is irreplaceable.”

Vocalist Taz Johnson adds about the lyrics: "'Dark Paradise' discusses the shame and regret behind living in a dissociative state and how it can leave you feeling vacant of emotion, like a stranger to those you love. The overwhelming feeling of nothingness that was once soothing becomes a fight for survival unless you learn to become comfortable with the uncomfortable.”

BELMONT's awaited third record, "Liminal," is a testament to the band's growth as musicians and continued quest to explore sonic realms beyond their signature style. Expanding on their early pop-punk roots, the three-piece blend and bend genres with fun yet complex experimentation and refined instrumentation. From anthemic pop-punk sing-alongs to electronic-driven body movers, "Liminal," is a non-stop party made for high-fives and stage-dives.

While "Liminal's" sound is upbeat, the lyrics take on somewhat of a more poignant tone with stories of inner turmoil, rumination and emotional distress with hopeful narratives of acceptance, perseverance and mindfulness. "'Liminal' as the title for our third record is meant to be an escape to a different world," Johnson says. "It’s a nostalgic longing for a place that doesn’t really exist, but you wish you were there."
