The symphonic metal group TULIP releases a new single “Clone”; New EP The Witch to be released in September


Texas-based symphonic metal band Tulip released their new single “Clone” on all major platforms. The single is from their new six-track storyscape EP The Witch, which will be released on September 17, 2021.

The EP, which is their heaviest yet, opens with the menacing “Sidewinder”, and chokes listeners in the thrilling hymns of “Clone” and “Proxy”, finally reaching the massive title track “The Witch “.

Their first two singles “Sidewinder” and “Proxy” racked up over 100,000 plays on Spotify in their first month alone. With this latest release, Tulip is set to make an impact on the world of symphonic metal, with the intense vocals of former opera singer Ashleigh Semkiw, the mighty guitar of Colin Parrish and the fury of Ryan Claxton at battery, which makes them unique in the genre.

Forged in the fire of excommunication, Texan transplants Tulip deliver their own brand of symphonic metal, led by ex-opera singer Ashleigh Semkiw and Colin Parrish on guitar.

Their story is unique. Publicly ashamed, ostracized and kicked out of the church, Semkiw and Parrish formed Tulip – an acronym nod to their ancient faith.

Emerging together for the first time in 2018, the members of Tulip are established artists, having performed for a decade in their respective past acts; Ashleigh in professional opera, Brandon with Oni across Europe alongside Children Of Bodom and Lamb Of God, Ryan in session in the US and Canada, and lead co-member Colin as engineer d ‘recording and mixing accomplished.

TULIP, their self-titled debut EP was self-written, recorded and mixed, and was mastered by Troy Glessner (Devin Townsend, New Found Glory, Disturbed). The collection of five songs offers symphonic metal with a modern groove-oriented twist.

After their first tour of the United States with Swedish metal band Evergrey, Tulip took it a step further with their next album. The High Strangeness LP features twelve tracks of overwhelming drums, searing guitars and masterful vocals backed up by full orchestration and layered synths.

Recorded at their home in Argyle, Texas, the LP was born out of a fascination and curiosity that Semkiw and Parrish share for the inexplicable. Big fans of Coast to Coast AM Radio and Whitley Strieber, they sought to create a musical pilgrimage into the unknown.
