STREAM “Borrowed Time”
Tzarina, the dynamic post-hardcore ensemble, unveiled their latest single, “Borrowed Time,” today, February 9th via TLG/Virgin Music Group. Immerse yourself in the powerful soundscape as Tzarina pushes musical boundaries with their compelling release. The band will be holding their album release show at the iconic Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, NY on March 20, 2024.
“‘Borrowed Time’ is more than a song; it’s our origin story, and a statement about fighting for a glass half-full,” says the band’s vocalist, Craig William.
For songwriter Craig William, the crux of the musical endeavor powered by the band Tzarina has always been to explore the more ethereal themes evident in the mixture of metal, post-rock and post-hardcore genres expressed in their music. This is evident in Tzarina’s trail of singles, which have been seeing their release since October of 2020.
It has been almost two years since the full LP was recorded, so they are slated to release their first complete work later this year. This has been a long-awaited moment for the band, who have been hard at work perfecting their sound and experimenting with various elements of their live performance.
Tzarina is composed of Craig William on vocals and guitar, Mark Ayesh on guitar and backup vocals, Robert Scott Abrams on drums, and Michael Forsyth on bass. With the constraints resulting from the COVID pandemic, the band was forced to have a bit more of a DIY ethic, with William handling the brunt of the songwriting, and recording, while in isolation. This did not stop the rest of the members from contributing where they could and the result is nothing short of a sound that is distinctly their own.
This is a group that takes great pride in its artistry, and it shows in the level of care put into every aspect of its music. It is this dedication that has allowed them to continue to evolve and grow as artists.
They are known for their aggressive live shows juxtaposed with beautifully textured music and thought-provoking lyrics that explore the human experience. With heavy, driving riffs and powerful vocals, Tzarina is poised to become one of the most exciting acts coming up in the Brooklyn area.
Tzarina is a band that is constantly striving to push themselves creatively, and they show no signs of slowing down any time soon. With a new album on the horizon and an ever-growing live show, there is much to be seen and heard from this talented group of musicians. Whether you’re a post-hardcore fan or just appreciate great music in general, Tzarina is definitely a band to keep your eye on.
