Matti Curious Edit:The final release is Everything I hoped for :-)

Departure Songs is my all-time favorite post rock album. I can't wait to hear the new album nonstop on headphones.

Celestial Nature We Lost the Sea really show their talent with this album. Rather than trying to outdo Departure Songs or even compare to that, they created a completely different entity. This album takes you on a journey through, well, Triumph & Disaster, and it does not let down for a single moment. What a beautiful piece of music! Favorite track: Parting Ways.

about

Triumph & Disaster is a post-apocalyptic view on the collapse of the world told like a children’s story and illustrated through the eyes of a mother and her son as they spend one last day on Earth. The music is the narrative for the destruction and tragedy. The words tell the story of love, loss and letting go.

It is a sad love letter about the collapse of the planet as told through a lens of intricate guitars and striking colour. The album deliberates themes and events such as the climate crisis, over consumption, isolation and the loss of love and trust. It is a lament for the planet, all the people on it and the beauty that will be left behind.

This is a pre-order.
Triumph & Disaster is out October 4 via Bird's Robe Records (Australia) and October 25 via Translation Loss (US), Holy Roar (UK) and Dunk!Records (EU).

Track Name: Mother's Hymn
We
Rose with the sun and fell into disgrace
We
Bled the earth dry while guilt soaked through our veins
Are we really too late?
Are we really too late?
Are we really too late?
Are we really too late?
