After a hugely successful crowd-funding campaign via PledgeMusic, international prog metallers SKYHARBOR deliver the first audiovisual treat from their upcoming sophomore album ‘Guiding Lights’ by way of an animated video for new song, ‘Patience’.
Created by the ridiculously talented Jess Cope and her team at Owl House Studios (who have also created visual wonders for Steven Wilson, Devin Townsend and Mikael Akerfeldt), ‘Patience’ is the product of 3 months of meticulous illustration, photography and stop-motion animation.

Guiding Lights offers 10 new tracks of exhilarating and heady progressive music, weaving a sonic tapestry of technically beautiful and imaginative melodies around crunchy metal riffs and sweeping, atmospheric vocals.
The album was funded by fans after a fast-paced and successful PledgeMusic campaign and has been mixed and mastered by legendary Australian producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Animals As Leaders, Dead Letter Circus). The album release rounds out a fantastic year for SKYHARBOR which has seen appearances at Download Festival, Graspop and a European tour, as well as a nomination for best Global Metal Band at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods.
Guiding Lights follows on from the critically acclaimed 2011 debut Blinding White Noise: Illusion & Chaos which won the band fans worldwide, including Lamb of God who handpicked the band to support them in India, whilst also resulting in awards for Best Song, Best Album and Best Band at the Rolling Stone India Metal Awards.
