The American progressive/heavy metal adepts HALCYON WAY will return with a three track digital EP titled “Night Crawling”, set for release on May 31st via Agonia Records. The EP features two brand new compositions and a cover of Miley Cyrus’s song, which can be listened to now.

“Like just about every band out there, the pandemic was a huge kick in the dick for Halcyon Way, and we had a lot of tours canceled or postponed,” comments guitarist Jon Bodan. “We had a period of serious writer’s block that we finally punched through and we’re hard at work on a new record. However, we decided to have some fun recording a cover version of Night Crawling by Miley Cyrus and we decided to release an EP with that as well as 2 more tracks. So we hope you enjoy the new tunes and we will see you on the road soon!”

HALCYON WAY is the ultimate example of blue-collar work ethic, self-reliant bootstrapping, and hard work & perseverance in spite of nearly insurmountable odds. The award winning band has released four albums worldwide, performed on 4 continents, and about 20 countries and counting. The band has toured extensively with the likes of Saxon, Sabaton, Queensryche, Fates Warning, Fozzy, Skid Row, U.D.O., Delain, Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime and most recently Metal Church (2018’s North American tour). HALCYON WAY's sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal. It can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, progressive and above all, focused on strong songcraft. From Megadeth to Dream Theater, to Testament and Chimaira - HALCYON WAY draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands. Their last installment – 2018’s "Bloody But Unbowed" – pleased the fans with a magnitude of catchy hooks, vocal harmonies a la King’s X or Stryper, and heavy, technical, yet ultimately accessible instrumentation.

The new EP “Night Crawling” was mixed and mastered by Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, Trivium, Bad Wolves, Threat Signal). The song “Night Crawling” was mixed by Zach Householder.
