Fuelled with hard-hitting honesty and intensely personal lyrics, ‘Welcome The Ironists’ is Caracal’s most cohesive and affecting album to date.
The title track is a blistering opener that showcases the band’s trademark riotous guitars and powerful vocals over hard-hitting drums.
This single is also the first of 10 songs that unfold over a well-paced mix of fast, aggressive numbers and stomping slow-burners, telling a gritty story of hard lessons and tempered hope; an album packed with colossal riffs, catchy melodies and epic choruses.
‘Welcome The Ironists’ was recorded and produced together with the band’s longstanding collaborator and dear friend – Singapore’s leading music producer and sound engineer, Leonard Soosay of Snakeweed Studios. The album was mastered in Canada with João Carvalho of João Carvalho Mastering (Sloan, Buck 65, The Weakerthans, Death From Above 1979).

How will I ever know if I was meant for more than this? Bring yourself close to the edge and feel god breathing down your back.
I hate that I love this chaos. Inhale. Exhale.
We break right through the fear of losing everything.
Consult your hopes and not your fears. This is our vessel, we are mere passengers. Concern yourself with what's possible. All it takes is two flints to make a fire. They say you give an inch and they'll take a mile so give, and give till your body aches. Just know the pain will be worthwhile. We shall sing or will we sink too deep? Why can't we breathe when this is the air we need? Will we ever live our lives or sink forever? Just like dust i'll rise with certainty of tides.
