US post-metal trio GIRIH has recently shared a music video for ‘The Key’, a new song off their forthcoming album “Ikigai”, due out on vinyl and digital formats on October 14th via A Thousand Arms and dunk!records.

Filmed by gotdamnjoshua and Brad Griffin and edited by Brian Luttrell, this video was captured at a local show in their hometown Manchester.

Named after the Japanese conceptual philosophy of finding purpose and fulfillment, the eight-track release was recorded at Wachusett Recording Co. by GIRIH and Mike Moschetto, who also engineered and mixed the album, and was mastered by Zach Weeks.

GIRIH formed in 2016 in New Hampshire and released their debut album “Eigengrau” in 2018, which was met with great critical acclaim and allowed them to play numerous shows throughout their local scene, including a slot in 2019’s Post Festival.

Comprised of Alex Paul (guitar), Brian Luttrell (guitar), and Jeremy Dingman (drums), GIRIH made significant strides towards improving and evolving their sound, and the new effort “Ikigai” is not merely a continuation of their impressive capabilities; it is an evolutionary progression in every tangible facet of their artistry.
