Australian Cinematic Progressive Rock band Anubis are back - and celebrate their twentieth anniversary with new concept album ‘The Unforgivable’, with the first single ‘Back’ and pre-orders for the studio album released on June 7th, 2024 through Australia’s Birds Robe Records.

‘The Unforgivable’ finds the band revisiting the narrative-based concept album format that characterised the seminal ‘230503’ (2009) and ‘A Tower of Silence’ (2011). Says keyboardist David Eaton ‘during the COVID lockdowns, Rob and I were left marooned with about two hours of multitracked jams. During that period, we were busy reworking the first two Anubis records for remixing, watching way too many Netflix documentaries about weird religious cults and had all of these great fragments of music which we tentatively slotted together into this long 45 minute piece. It just seemed logical that all of these things would line up - and when we got together after lockdown, we showed the band what we’d done and everyone got behind the idea immediately.’

The album tells the story of a young man’s falling into - and escape from a religious cult in the American midwest known as The Legion of Angels. A dark, moody story that is told over the course of the two sides of vinyl - with one epic length piece split into ten parts.

‘It calls to mind the 230503 album, especially, to me. Lots of atmosphere, and a very clear, linear story. But it manages to tell this story in almost half the time! Like every album we’ve done, it represents a progression in our ability to make records and is rather a reaction to our last album which was much more accessible. This one really needs the time to reveal itself - but is all the more rewarding for it.’

Anubis' seventh studio album is a return to the narrative concept album format with a story of a young man's fall into - and escape from - a religious cult called 'The Legion of Angels'. Told as he runs from the cult members and from the law across the American midwest; the album echoes some of the musical influences that made the '230503' and 'A Tower of Silence' albums, as well as 2017's 'The Second Hand'.

Presented as one single epic track split into ten parts over two sides of vinyl, this album is musically darker and moodier than it's predecessor, 2020's critically acclaimed 'Homeless'.
