AURAS RELEASE “THE DEMONESS” SINGLE
SUMMER TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
NEW SINGLE, “MOMENTA” AVAILABLE NOW
NEW ALBUM, BINARY GARDEN, OUT JULY 12, 2019
PRE SAVE/ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW
AURAS have released “The Demoness”, another new track from their forthcoming LP due out next month. “The Demoness” is the second track released by the band over the last few weeks in anticipation of the new LP.
“‘The Demoness’ is one of the heavier songs off of ‘Binary Garden,’” says guitarist Josh Ligaya. “The lyrics were written with a fictional sci-fi approach where I talk about Mother Nature letting go of herself as a person would. She’s tired of being mistreated by people and decides to stop taking care of herself; along with everyone who lives with her (human beings). Her toxic lifestyle of metaphorical substance abuse eventually leads to destroying humanity as a result.”
AURAS will embark on a large batch of tour dates this summer in support of their all-new LP coming out next month. The band will hit the road in July on a short run of headline dates before meeting up with NIGHT VERSES for ten days.
AURAS will then continue for two weeks with RED HANDED DENIAL. All tickets are on sale now.

Binary Garden will be the follow up to Heliospectrum, the debut full-length offering from AURAS. Heliospectrum was the inevitable culmination of years spent perfecting their sonic brew in basements, clubs, and rehearsals, honing a mix of unrelenting heaviness, complex riffs, and melodic ambiance.
As New Noise raved in their four-star review, “AURAS specializes in chaotic intensity married with passages of staggering beauty (and nice melodic touches strewn about).”Canada’s Exclaim! observed, “Heliospectrum is an indication that, in a genre overflowing with imitators, AURAS are capable of carving out a place that is firmly their own.” Metal Injection’s Nick Abela even included the album on his list of the Top 15 Albums of 2016.
Ottawa native Dean Hadjichristou (Parkway Drive, Protest The Hero, The Kindred) recorded Binary Garden, which was mixed by Jordan Valeriote (Silverstein, Counterparts, Structures). Nick Sampson (Of Mice & Men, We Came As Romans, Born Of Osiris) aided in preproduction as AURAS endeavored to crystallize their ambitious ideas.
Binary Garden saw the band members challenging themselves like never before, from the writing stage through the production process. They shook off preconceived notions and embraced a more “clean” singing and simpler structure without sacrificing their signature sound. The end result features more atmospherics alongside a bigger “feel.”
AURAS continue to throw new curveballs, pulverizing through tight musical corners with precision, filling their songs with rhythmic twitches and warped riffs that beckon listeners down a new rabbit hole with each rewarding repeated listening. It’s all imbued with a deep sense of connection to the audience and an emphasis on communication.
AURAS shouldn’t just be listened to. This is music that simply must be experienced.
