Janus Announce New Album and Tour With Chevelle and Middle Class Rut

Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group have set a March 27th release date for Janus' sophomore album, Nox Aeris, and the band is hitting the road with Chevelle and Middle Class Rut on February 24th.

The record's title, which is Latin for "night air," comes from the 14th Century, a period where a third of the European population was killed off by the plague. Then, people believed going outdoors at night would cause them to succumb to the Black Death. While writing Nox Aeris, Janus found this idea to be an apt metaphor for their own journey, preconceived notions of their own being flipped around as they became a bigger, more established band since the release of Red Right Return. Nox Aeris reveals who Janus is and what they've gone through.

The album's first single "'Stains' explores what can happen when you don't follow your heart, the marks left on your spirit when you become someone you're not. "It embodies what I was trying to say on the record," says singer David Scotney, "it's a dark point of view, but represents a cathartic process of self-healing."
