Sirens & Sailors is set to release their newest full length Skeletons on October 29th. The group recently premiered their song “Straightjacket” via Alternative Press, and it is now available on YouTube to watch. While there are a lot of acts out there categorizing themselves as progressive metal, I really like what these guys have to offer as it’s a groovy mix of progressive metal with some traditional metalcore and even post hardcore. But they don’t quite sound exactly like all the other groups going for this same type of thing, so I’m interested in hearing the rest of the album to see if they can offer strong hooks from one track to the next.

(New York, NY) – Sirens & Sailors will release their Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie debut full length album, Skeletons, on October 29th.
