Invent Animate share Zak Pinchin-directed video for unreleased track 'Heavener'

The band's year-end contending new album came without a title track (until now).

Earlier this year, Invent Animate delivered a spectacle of a progressive metal record in the form of Heavener via UNFD, which now has a moving title track to accompany it with an equally immersive video by Zak Pinchin.

Frontman Marcus Vik comments:

"In a time of internal panic, having a person that constantly reminds you that they have a place of home, can be crucial when trying to bring someone down to earth again. The song 'Heavener' is about reassurance, it's about trying to convince your closest person that you see and hear them in their internal and helpless drift. A lot of love and pain goes into the work of showing the one closest to you that only they can create their own internal heaven, as they are their own 'Heavener.'"

Guitarist Keaton Goldwire adds:

"We actually had a few 'B sides' sitting around but we're really stubborn in thinking that the next thing we write will always be better than the thing before. Caleb had the idea to make a song titled 'Heavener' after the record was done and I got to work trying to make a song that seemed like it encompassed the feeling of the album as a whole. Going into the lyrics, Marcus, too, wrote a song that defined Heavener for him, since it's not necessarily one idea or thing. We wanted to try our best to wrap everything up into one song as a sort of 'end credits,' so to speak."
