Today, the Copenhagen, Denmark based post metal quintet LATE NIGHT VENTURE release their fifth album ‘V: Bones Of The Extinct’ through Trepanation Recordings and Vinyltroll Records.

Singer/guitarist and lyricist Michael Falk states on the album:

“The songs on "V: Bones of the Extinct" covers three different aspects of human detachment and division.

How we as humans have alienated ourselves from the nature we're a part of (Hostile Nature/Mammut).

How we divide ourselves from each other in society (Armed Warrior/Hate Speech).

How ultimately we will all be detached from ourselves and the ones close to us (Reappear/Prognosis Negative).”

‘V: Bones Of The Extinct’ is now available on Vinyl, CD and MC HERE.

LATE NIGHT VENTURE was formed in 2006 and released its eponymous debut album the same year. In 2012, the band commenced on its ‘cosmic trilogy’ with the sophomore album ‘Pioneers of Spaceflight’, followed by ‘Tychonians’ in 2015 and completed with ‘Subcosmos’ in 2019. Along the way, LATE NIGHT VENTURE has refined its post-metallic sound rounded off by the band’s poetic, Scandinavian clinging expression while playing more than 400 shows all over Europe.

While creating ‘V: Bones Of The Extinct’, LATE NIGHT VENTURE deliberately labored towards making the music more direct than before. This approach has resulted in six sharply cut compositions, where the post rock elements are downplayed and songwriting and riffs are the focal points. The band’s vivid and gritty aesthetics are intact and as always the band recorded the music live. As a whole, the album presents itself as the band’s most heavy, angry and focused work to date.

‘Bones Of The Extinct’ is a text excerpt establishing a framework for the album and its songs, which individually are images of unforeseen occurrences with irreversible consequences. The lyrics cast their gaze upon the world and can be characterized as grounded doomsday stories about conditions, which more or less concern all beings on the planet. This gaze is directed towards mankind and its nature, all our efforts in this world - and the consequences of our urge. ‘Bones Of The Extinct’ is an image of us watching the bones of ourselves; watching the consequences of our emotions, words and actions. One day, our history will lay scattered as the bones of the extinct - not least, if we remain on the current path determined by the greedy, prideful and vain.

‘V: Bones Of The Extinct’ is produced by Patrick Fragtrup in Sweet Silence Studios (Metallica, Morbid Angel, Mew), mastered by Brad Boatright in Audiosiege and carries artwork by Morten Grønnegaard.
