I had reviewed the excellent new Shriekback album in December as I had helped to crowdsource its recording sessions and got in on the early end of distribution. Now the band have it for sale to the rest of humanity and that is the operative word here as the album brims with the sort of deep emotional resonance they are no strangers to. The suite of the last three songs may go down as their finest hour yet as we can see from the new video just released for “The Fire Has Brought Us Together.” Courtesy of the lens of the band’s favorite videographer, Howard Davidson. Play it right now, unless you are mad.
