Michael Reilly Foot's robust hard rock/grunge blend fuses sounds and styles from bands you likely already love, however, they've got their own strength of performance to offer, despite the many similarities. Killer riffs, harmony vocals, intent – plenty of tasty meat on these bones. Favorite track: Green Embers.

𝔩𝔬𝔲𝔡-𝔮𝔲𝔦𝔢𝔱-𝔩𝔬𝔲𝔡 𝓘n 2016 one fuzzy Foot descended, and the Buffalo roamed stoned within the desert kingdom. Now the wait for another tome to drop, is repaid with a motherlode of milestone rock. Behold! The Balance of Nature Shifted, on ballads of glaciers burnt to embers. Of Alice through the Stone Age drifting, blastin' grooves and heavy riffing. Foot put a finger to the planet's pulse. Armed with a killer hand of organic cuts. Favorite track: Break The Altar (Light/Shade).

Did you think I was gonna wait Have it all and eat the cake Free the people, who’ve come too late Cast a line without the bait To get you safe home tonight Seems doubtful without a fight Cos I know time ain’t on our side I don’t what you wanted to be I’m sure it had no effect on me And everything will find its place If we forgot this kind of race When you think that things are made You’ll get your button and then you’ll fade The less the people, you’re job is done Rationale is uncommon To get you safe home tonight Seems doubtful without a fight Cos I know time ain’t our side I don’t what you wanted to be I’m sure it had no effect on me And everything will find its place If we forgot this kind of race A cinema to watch what’s gone Seems to be a thing that weighs a tonne No matter where you are, I’ll always love you No matter where you are, the sky’s above you What did you want to be?

I’m telling you I must have missed the phase Under handed voice from wenth it came For I can see to where you hide No Job, No Life, No Disregard My poor ego You tried, next time Bad luck, you died You’re all the same Alone is all you’ll ever know So change the way you ought to be Console the console warrior And beg that you will see a change So when they say they’re going to play That means sit on their ass all day Confuse their worth with online pride Where do they look when they confide Alone is all you’ll ever know So change the way you ought to be Console the console warrior And beg that you will see a change Alone is all you’ll ever know So change the way you ought to be Console the console warrior And beg that you will see a change Men’s Rights The Incel Life Men’s Rights The Incel Life

To the point of breaking, only so much it can bend Although your bones are aching, there’s money to be spent Serious bouts of enterprise Then we kill all no mind the size Bank account is falling the other end is on the rise Your first steps are crawling, then it’s all just smiles and cries Serious bouts of enterprise Then we kill all no mind the size

Ride It Out 03:34
Low tide means keep out reach Me and the blight on ability Now we specialize on forcing the weak Now I realize A generation here to ride it out And they know it all Just to tell them that they’re not allowed At your beck and call Are these our irregularities? Yes by the book wrote by us Now I go sell things on the street Besides my thoughts of the elite A generation here to ride it out And they know it all Just to tell them that they’re not allowed At your beck and call You’re gonna ride it out You’re gonna ride it out

The beast begins inside And it’s hard to find But eventually without sign It’ll merge in time Sucker deals are A free for all Suit up and look good The deals will come And who’s in charge here? And are you gonna bare the brunt And risk it all? Are you gonna risk it all? Are you gonna risk it all? No matter what I say you’re blind Slave to the hive And saving things for life Where are they when you die? Sucker deals are A free for all Suit up and look good The deals will come And who’s in charge here? And are you gonna bare the brunt

I’m trying to recall a blur I could’ve been anywhere Recollections from a stumbler To try and see what’s in there Try to look for something broader But who gives a shit in the end Surmise the breakup of the alter and then surprise Forget the watch and just wait long cos you weren’t there You may be own matyr But you could just be fair game Paint yourself into a corner Now who is just to blame Surmise the breakup of the alter and then surprise Forget the watch and just wait long cos you weren’t there We are just beings without no hope We are just here Here Will we be made, with life in the shade Shade blends into the light Will we be made, with life in the shade Shade blends into the light Will we be made, with life in the shade Shade blends into the light Will we be made, with life in the shade Shade blends into the light

Neighbours 03:51
The border line is hard to define Difference between cultures unrefined The pathway between us will surely find Whether it’s your soul below your mind Cross between the lands, we’ll fall away Cross between the lands, we’ll fall away I’m not acting like I know better I read and observe the pointless slaughter What can we do to avoid the stormy weather? With pieces we find, proceed to put together Cross between the lands, we’ll fall away Cross between the lands, we’ll fall away

Opinion, every mind You’re an expert, in every kind Followers, influencers And all I can smell is formaldehyde You want your views to be considered But in this day and age bigotry is dead Back on the horse, don’t back down And get called for being a clown The world today has given us a taste For those who are classified as waste You want your views to be considered But in this day and age bigotry is dead The gates of heaven might reveal a rude awakening I’ll see you down below The gates of heaven might reveal a rude awakening I’ll see you down below A life not lived could be forgived in the afterlife I’ll see you down below At the point of death without much left are you satisfied? I’ll see you down below

You came here for an escape But here is where you’ll stay You’re beautiful and that’s for sure Why do you gamble yourself away? Fling me into the waves Sail through the cosmic rays Have the lights gone out To think the odds were stacked Way against me Cos you’re beautiful and that’s for sure Time keeps ticking away Fling me out into the waves Sail through the cosmic rays Have the lights gone out Chasing your tail the tail never comes When you’re high You think what you think is the Centre of being When you’re high Chasing your tail the tail never comes When you’re high And to think what you’d think if you were feeling fine Chasing your tail the tail never comes When you’re high Now its time that we rode into sun Goodbye

about

The world is a complicated and troubling place, now more so than it has been for a while. Things are shifting around us and we have new challenges to overcome that we've never experienced before both personally and as a society. These feelings of change have been captured by front man Paul Holden and the rest of Foot in 'The Balance of Nature Shifted'.

"This album could be a reaction to an overall personal feeling that things around me are shifting at an alarming rate. Whether it be human interactions with environment, technology and each other. Things are changing, for me personally and externally.

The Balance of Nature Shifted could also be a snippet of how frustrating it can be seeing suffering and angst from which the cause seems so easily avoidable.

This album isn’t meant to preach anything other than that is incredibly important to acknowledge your emotions, feel them and react to them in a healthy way. For me this manifests itself in the music and lyrics contained within.

This album may be a lot of things, but it is most likely just a hard rock album I wrote and recorded because I find that to be the most enjoyable past time in the world."

'The Balance of Nature Shifted' is the follow-up to Foot's acclaimed second album 'Buffalo' and is due for release digitally on the 1st of May 2020 with a vinyl release slated for August.

Foot take their well-honed desert rock sound one step further on 'The Balance of Nature Shifted', with songs going harder than they ever have before on a Foot record. Fans that were on board for their self-titled debut and follow-up 'Buffalo' are sure to be satisfied while newer audiences will love this classic blend of Queens of the Stone Age meets Alice in Chains.

Lead single 'Green Embers' demonstrates the band's ability to go just as hard as any other stoner metal band out there, with riffs hitting you from out of nowhere while closing track 'High' brings the whole record together in one epic blend of desert and prog rock which crescendos beautifully to the album's last sound.
