LUNE Release New Single ‘Progeny’


Melbourne metalcore outfit LUNE have announced their signing to Resist Records and release new single Progeny, leading single from upcoming EP The Change Around Us & The Change In You out November 10. Watch the video for Progeny here.

LUNE showcase their strengths on Progeny, journeying through raging moments of heavy hitting drums, pulsing guitars and violent vocal lines, sharing with listeners the first taste of their anticipated sophomore EP. Collaborating with Jamie Marinos on production, Lance Prenc with additional drum engineering and Buster Odeholm on the mix and master, the quartet are gearing up to release their fierce new collection with an all star team behind them.

Thematically linked to the 2019 single Manipulator, the new tune tackles vocalist Nathaniel Smith and guitarist Krys Smith experience with family violence. “Family is complicated and that is especially relevant for us,” explains Nathaniel.

“Family ties are often used as an excuse to not hold someone accountable for their behaviour. The title Progeny came from the fear that in some way negative traits are hereditary, and there’s this vehement refusal to take on the negative qualities of a toxic family member. We are not the failings of our family or the things we have experienced. You owe it to yourself to unlearn all of the things that harmed you and the unhealthy schemas that were put in place as a result of your environment in an effort to survive.”

Progeny will see its live debut at a special headliner at The Wool Exchange in Geelong on October 14, with supports still to be announced. Tickets available now via Oztix.

Exploding out of Melbourne with a sound well beyond their years, LUNE combines the experience of members’ formerly of I, Valiance and Blind Oracle with innovative experimental exploration. LUNE is Nathaniel Smith on vocals, Krys Smith on guitar, Harrison Mills on drums and David Freeland on bass.

Launching with the debut single Ghost in November of 2019, LUNE immediately earned themselves a passionate and dedicated fanbase over their ability to connect with listeners through their vulnerable and expressive lyricism, providing therapeutic catharsis for both artist and audience.

Their lyricism and expert musicianship has seen LUNE jump from strength to strength, skyrocketing digital streams to over 1M since inception and summoning the attention of heavyweight tastemakers across the nation. The steadfast four-piece joined the Destroy All Lines roster in 2021 and celebrate their recent signing to established independent record label, Resist Records, home to PolarisPridelands and Mirrors among others.

With a plethora of achievements already under their belt, LUNE find themselves embarking on a bright future as one of Australia’s finest heavy acts. Progeny is available and streaming everywhere now. ‘The Change Around Us & The Change In You‘ will be available Friday November 10 via Resist Records.
