Releasing their new album ‘Eyes And Ears’ on October 7th, Vancouver, BC’s QUARTERED returns to the spotlight to follow up 2010’s ‘Walk Like A Ghost’ that took the band on multiple Canadian and international tours, one of which saw them playing with Lamb of God and Testament at the 2010 Pulp Summer Slam festival (held in Manila, Philippines). The first single off the new release ‘Violent Love’ is now available as a FREE download for fans on PureGrainAudio.com.
“Violent Love is a song that hits you in the chest. It’s hard hitting with an emotional undertone of a past soured relationship. Not only is it an intense song musically but also emotionally. As people we can all identify with the feeling. We felt it was important to come back with a song that people can relate to on a personal level.” explains vocalist Greg Williams.
Quartered’s focus has always been on conveying moody emotion and mixing heavy grooves, experimental riffs, and hook-laden bridges to paint a picture with lyrics that tell a story while keeping one major goal in mind: longevity.
With their last two full-length albums, The Falls of Autumn and Walks Like a Ghost, produced by Ben Kaplan (worked on projects with Mudvayne, Chevelle, Alexisonfire and Rise Against), the progressive metal band is ready to unleash its third record, Eyes and Ears co-produced by Royce Whittaker .

In additional news, Quartered will be performing at this year’s third annual Rain City Throwdown presented by Denyss McKnight of Crowsnest Productions and Cariboo Brewing at the Rickshaw Theatre on Sept 27th in Vancouver, BC alongside bands Take The Earth Beneath Us, The Body Politic, Wolfborne, Drop The Hate. Full details can be found here.
“Rain City Throwdown was an event born out of support for the local metal scene. With a lack of mediums for bands to gain exposure, this was a no-brainer. An event for us by us. One night of the year where we showcase Vancouver talent. This event has given the local heavier acts a chance to perform together for one night, on one stage, for the fans. See you at the front, bring them dancing shoes.” says vocalist Greg Williams.
