French act Celeste have released the epic "Laissé pour compte comme un bâtard" ("Outcast as a bastard") from the band's upcoming album Animale(s), due out November 22nd through Denovali Records. Embrace the bleak and grim reality of youth below.

About Animale(s), Denovali Records says: "The concept behind Animale(s) is the bleak story of a boy and a girl, a kind of love story with a tragic ending. A story about how tough youth can be if parents discard their responsibilities. For once in metal-oriented music, a closer look at artwork and lyrics gives a new dimension to a record and is indispensable for a comprehensive and complete experience of this double album.

Musically, Animale(s) sees Celeste developing their metal and hardcore oriented sound in different directions. Their music was always characterised by the interaction of monumental melodies, dark riffs, violent drums and expressive lyrics, but on the new album all these ingrediences are more expressed. The last three years' time has carved out the contrasts in Celeste's music like a stream carves out a rugged canyon. The melodies are more melodic, but also more sparse. Many parts are much darker and more noisy than the past albums. The lyrics are as savage as they can be without being vulgar. At the same time, Animale(s) features exceptional collaborations with artists such as the experimental musician Ben Chatwin from Talvihorros - also on Denovali Records - and the composers and sound designers Sabrina Duval and Jean Charles Bastion.

Celeste truly managed to finish this double album at the right moment, before the amount of concept, composition and artistic skill would have been too much for a single album. Exactly for this reason, Animale(s) is a unique piece of art, a coherent album which does not allow for anything to be added without destroying it. Simply put, it is just perfect."
