Brand New Album "The Sparkling Black" Available 6/21! Tracklist & Album Art Revealed, Preorders Available

The brand new Aura Blaze album The Sparkling Black will be esoterically released on the summer solstice, June 21, 2019.

A whirlwind of color and lights, this epic psychedelic odyssey takes the listener through the flowering hills of melody and beautiful catchiness, across the vast mountain ranges of introspection and awe, and into the depths of an oceanic level of avant-garde dissonance. 

The tracklist is as follows:

1. Overture: Solar Emerge
2. Good While It Lasted
3. Eyes of the Rising Sun
4. Manipulation (feat. Bj√∂rn Strid) 
5. Keep On Believing
6. No Soul That Couldn't Be Sold in Hollywood
7. Hope It All Works Out
8. The Sparkling Black
9. Reprise: Lunar Dissolve

Preorders are currently available on Bandcamp as well as iTunes, Apple Music, and Amazon

You can also pre-save the album on Spotify.

The official album trailer can be viewed below:

► Aura Blaze: Studio Update Video — 07/07/18 *TRACK-BY-TRACK OVERVIEW*

A brand new studio update video is finally here! (Watch it below).

I apologize for the relative silence on the Aura Blaze front as of late — been slaving away at the album while overcoming the inevitable Rhodeblocks that emerge every now and again but rest assured that we are well on our way to something wonderful, gleaming just over the horizon of the near future...

Immense progress has been achieved since the last update and I made sure to highlight much of this in an extended 19-minute vlog that walks through each track, one at a time, offering insight into what to expect in terms of vibe, energy, and atmosphere. Looking forward to bringing it all to life very soon!

Thank you for your patience and continued support, have a great weekend everyone!

Aura Blaze Releases "Life (We All Get One)" — Recorded In A Single Day For The "Speak Into My Good Eye" 24-Hour Songwriting Challenge

Ladies and gents, here is a brand new Aura Blaze original! Streaming & download available below.

"Life (We All Get One)" was written, recorded, and produced in a single day for the Speak Into My Good Eye charity event, the 24-Hour Songwriting Challenge benefitting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.  Over 50 bands participated in the 4th annual 24-Hour Songwriting Challenge, culminating in an epic full-length compilation album that can be downloaded here: https://speakimge.bandcamp.com/album/the-4th-annual-24-hour-songwriting-challenge All proceeds are donated to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

As for "Life," yes, there are some rough edges, and I do plan on going back to make the necessary edits and fixes, but for cranking this whole thing out in one day I am quite happy with the results. Hope you enjoy this "24-hour" version in the meantime until I get the chance to polish it up and officially release it as a new single! Thank you as always for the support.
