Convergence is the title of the band’s highly anticipated new album and was produced by Dead Letter Circus guitarist Clint Vincent. After a lengthy pre-production phase seeing demos being sent via the internet between South Africa and Clint Vincent’s studio in Australia, the album was recorded in three different locations at the tail-end of 2015. Drums and vocals were recorded at Loudmouth Studios in the small town of Klerksdorp in the North West province of South Africa. Guitars and bass were recorded at Deity’s Muse guitarist, Yokim Pillay’s home. Additional guitars and programming were recorded and performed by Clint Vincent at Vin James Music in Brisbane, Australia.
Convergence is a dynamic and anthemic exercise in modern alternative rock boasting superb musical interplay and strong, melodic vocals. The diverse material effortlessly breathes and pulsates between catchy and progressive, high energy groove-rock to atmospheric and textured realms.
Deity’s Muse draw sonic influence from bands such as Porcupine Tree, Deftones, Karnivool, Chevelle, Tool.
2016 will see the band touring South Africa in support of Convergence. International tours are in the planning phase too.
