Eric Francis Releases Quarantine-Made LP “Under A Fake Sky”

Progressive metal artist Eric Francis has released his new LP “Under A Fake Sky,” available on all digital platforms now. Creating a deliberate sense of “musical whiplash” in his sound, Eric Francis uses a contrast between light and heavy elements in his writing. “Under A Fake Sky” was conceived during the COVID-19 pandemic from March – July, and was created entirely by Francis in his home while in quarantine. Lyrically, the LP tells the story of his personal experiences during quarantine, and how he was handling isolation, current events, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

About the LP, Eric states: “The album ends on a cliffhanger. While creating this album has provided me with much needed comfort and distraction, nothing has changed. The pandemic is ongoing with no way out in sight. Many people, myself included, are still lost at sea when it comes to careers and incomes. The current state of the world is bleak, and I felt that there was no other appropriate ending. Depending on what the future holds, I may continue the story in a follow-up album.”

His new LP, ‘Under A Fake Sky,” (released August 28th) was created during the COVID-19 pandemic by Francis himself. Although the record was unplanned, Eric found himself inspired by the confines of quarantine to produce, write, record, mix, and master an album from his home. Lyrically, the LP tells the story of his personal experiences with quarantine, isolation, current events, and the COVID-19 pandemic. “Under A Fake Sky” is a mesh of progressive metal and djent sounds that blend together seamlessly.
