Today, Chicago, Illinois rock band Belmont have just announced that they will be releasing their third studio album, Liminal, on April 12th via Pure Noise Records. It serves as the follow-up to 2021’a Aftermath.

Alongside the album announcement, Belmont have released the lead single, title-track “Liminal.” The song is accompanied by its music video which was directed by Michael Herrick (Real Friends, Knuckle Puck) and can be seen below.

Commenting on the single’s lyrical content, Belmont vocalist Taz Johnson says, Much like life, our thoughts are a series of never ending transitions with no start or finish, a cycle we never escape. Learn to find comfort in what never was, cause it will always be.

Belmont’s long awaited third record, Liminal, is a testament to the band’s growth as musicians and continued quest to explore sonic realms beyond their signature style. Expanding on their early pop-punk roots, the three-piece blend and bend genres with fun yet complex experimentation and refined instrumentation. From anthemic pop-punk sing-alongs to electronic driven body movers, Liminal, is a non-stop party made for high-fives and stage-dives.

While Liminal’s sound is upbeat, the lyrics take on somewhat of a more poignant tone with stories of inner turmoil, rumination and emotional distress with hopeful narratives of acceptance, perseverance and mindfulness.

‘Liminal’ as the title for our third record is meant to be an escape to a different world,” Johnson says. “It’s a nostalgic longing for a place that doesn’t really exist, but you wish you were there.
