Japanese post hardcore legends Envy have released their first EP in over 3 years ‘Seimei’. Seimei contains 3 songs: “Seimei”, “Zanshin” and “Yamayura”. It is a title that entrusts the word “Seimei” to the usual way of life that awaits us, finding a small hope in the dark passage of time. Recording and mixing for Seimei were handled by Takaaki Mino Takaaki Mino (of the Japanese band, toe). The artwork is by Cris Crude– of beloved American screamo band pg.99 – who also made the art for envy’s “Alnair In August” single (2018).
“Following the 1st track Seimei which was released on October 12th, the 2nd track Zanshin and the 3rd track Tamayura are released today. Zanshin means “Uninterrupted Heart”. Tamayura means “For a short time”. We sincerely hope that you will catch and feel what we want to convey with these three songs.”
China-based label New Noise are releasing this album on a beautiful vinyl edition which is limited to 100 copies and will ship out on March 3, 2023.
