Official Listenable Records press release:

Freshly mastered at the Finnox studio in Finland (Children Of Bodom, Nightwish...), Irish folk metal band Waylander are releasing their brand new and fourth full length album Kindred Spirits on July 16th (EU) and August 14th (North America). The band here described lyrics for the two first songs: "Echoes Of The Sidhe" and "Lámh Dearg" which we feel are very interesting topics.

"Echoes Of The Sidhe" - Deals with the enduring fascination in Celtic countries with the Sidhe/the Fairy folk/Tuatha De Danann, which has survived the coming of Christianity as well as the modern age of enlightenment. The belief in the old Gods and the existence of higher plains of existence has endured and will continue to do so.

"Lámh Dearg" - Meaning red hand, the symbol of the northern province of Ulster of which N. Ireland makes up two thirds. For the first time since our debut demo, the conflict in N. Ireland is used as subject matter for one of our songs. This song is about love for the land which transcends politics, where the land itself is sacred while mankind is merely the custodian for the generations to come. Concentrate on what unites us, as it's a lot more than people have knowledge off due to a blinkered mindset. In effect this song is a modern pagan perspective on the conflict we have endured.

Kindred Spirits tracklist:

01. Echoes Of The Sidhe
02. Lámh Dearg
03. Twin Fires Of Beltíne
04. Of Fear And Fury
05. Grave Of Giants
06. A Path Well Trodden
07. Quest For Immortality
08. Erdath
09. Kindred Spirits
