Ignescent are local stars in Chicago; now they are ready for a nationwide takeover. “Remnant” is an anthem about perseverance and reinvention after misfortune.
CHICAGO, Illinois, USA, January 31, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — We don’t need to tell you that Ignescent is a fierce and fierce live band. You’ll know it seconds after hitting play on their latest single, “Remnant.” Only a band that has been tightened, soaked and tested by countless shows could achieve such sonic cohesion. Ignescent is made up of four musicians – guitarist Ty Moreland, bassist Ian Sebastian, drummer Joshua Garcia and powerful vocalist Jennifer Benson – but when they plug in and roar, they’re one unstoppable force. The words, beats, hard-hitting riffs, propelling grooves, brutality, attitude and startlingly catchy melodic phrases are all expressions of a unified musical vision.
Ascension, the band’s forthcoming EP, is the latest realization of that vision: a tough, compact musical statement from a band that’s never afraid to cut to the chase. “Remnant,” an anthem about perseverance and reinvention after misfortune, finds all four members performing at their absolute peak – which is saying a lot, considering their formidable skills. Jennifer Benson sings her battered but unbreakable spirit. The rest of the band backs her up with music of enormous pulling power. Together they bear witness to rock at its most inspiring and uncompromising – a musical metaphor, a clenched fist ready to strike.
The undeniable skills of Ignescent’s musicians made the group a sought-after early hard rock band – and, increasingly, a headliner. They’ve played in support of Megadeth, Saliva, Eve 6, Fight the Fury, Otep, and Letters From the Fire, to name a few bands, and they’ve appeared at Summerfest, Rock Fest in Wisconsin, and on the Vans Warped Tour, Also. They even had the opportunity to write and make music with one of their heroes and inspirations: Sameer Bhatacharya of Texas rockers Flyleaf. They’re stars in their native Chicago and well-known throughout the Midwest, and Ascension is poised to earn the band a national reputation for rock excellence.
A band like Ignescent – and a song like “Remnant” – demands a performance clip. Director Joseph Davis Castleberry obliges with a video that presents the band in its most kinetic form. Yet this is no ordinary concert sequence. It’s a play of light and shadow, strange and unexpected angles, strange lighting, steam, sweat and ghostly reflections. Castleberry has captured all the danger, joy and excitement of the Ignescent live experience in this clip, and if you have any taste for hard rock, it will surely whet your appetite for the upcoming Ascension tour.
