 After twenty years as an instrumental act Sons of Alpha Centauri are proud to announce Jonah Matranga from the post-hardcore legends Far and Gratitude has joined up with the band as vocalist for their upcoming third studio album entitled Push.

In turn Sons of Alpin turn Sons of Alpha Centauri for their third offering have merged with members of two legendary Sacramento hardcore bands namely Far and Will HavenWith an ideology rooted in the 90s hardcore scene the record has evolved a fresh take on alternative post-hardcore and emotive metal. The hypnotic pulsing riffs and the soaring emotional power of Jonah’s wrought and raw vocals provide his first heavy performance since the critically acclaimed Far reunion album At Night We Live!SOAC follows on from Continuum exploring their heavier side and pursuing a truly Avant grade blend of progressive ambient metal and post-hardcore. Jonah uses his return to post-hardcore to challenge some of the core topics with a reignited fire of passion and emotional persuasion. Founding member and bass player Nick Hannon said ‘SOAC has a split personality – this is most certainly our darker and heavier side – we grew up on 90s alternative rock and harnessing our vision with the purveyors of the Sacramento post-hardcore sound will make this a true landmark release and we have taken it to the extreme collaborating with Mitch and Jonah!’
