FLOOR – Oblation – April 1, 2014

Posted on April 1, 2014

More information about Oblation

Cult rock outfit FLOOR (Steve Brooks (also of TORCHE) – guitar, vocals; Anthony Vialon – guitar; Henry Wilson – drums) have released “Trick Scene”, the fourth track from their highly anticipated new album ‘Oblation’. The song is streaming now at The Onion A/V Club.

Regarding the new track, Anthony Vialon comments: “Like a lot of our songs, ‘Trick Scene’ is partly open for interpretation. It’s simply about people who use sexuality, or whatever, to further their agenda. Focused on things external to themselves, they eventually get played by their own game. Nonetheless, they’re in control and have a choice.”

FLOOR recently announced a US album release tour. The Noisey/Vice sponsored tour starts on April 30th in Miami, and has been expanded to include dates in Orlando and Tampa upon its completion. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

FLOOR will be touring in support of their forthcoming full-length, ‘Oblation’, to be released on April 25 (April 29 in North America). The album can be pre-ordered in various formats on Season of Mist’s e-shop. See artwork and track list below.
