It's amazing to think that the last time we posted on the blog here, it was August of 2020. We had just released Summer Never Ends, one of our most fun and "Pop" oriented songs yet. We're still excited about that song and are eager to play it for you someday when outside becomes open again.
In the meantime, we've taken some time to focus on the heavier side of our sound with our two lastest singles. Back in December, we released Somebody Else when we wanted to explore the Trap-Metal side of things, and just last Friday we released Jitterthink, a more straightforward metalcore track with amazingly brutal guest vocals from our buddy Nick Young from the Toronto Deathcore band Pillars of Autumn. The lyric video for the song is out now.
We have also had some significant changes in our band. We are now functioning as a three-piece band, with Sid and Jeremy having stepped away at various points to focus on other projects. We still love those guys and even have some shared ongoing projects with them outside of Kozen. For the foreseeable future, though, Kozen will operate with Jared, Jericho, and Max as the full lineup of the band.
We are always hard at work on more music and more content, so please stay tuned for everything else we've got on the way. In the meantime, make sure to listen to all of our most recent tracks, and take time to share them with your friends! When shows finally become a thing again, we would love to see you all knowing the words and singing along.
Hope you're all staying healthy and sane in these absolutely wild times. Take care of yourselves, and we will hopefully see you in person sometime soon.
