Independent prog-rock band Illuminate Minerva debuted the latest single from its new album this week.

The band debuted its new single ‘Abductions’ Tuesday through the Prog Space.  the song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming album Enigma Adamantine, which is scheduled for release Sept. 25.  Pre-orders are open through Apple Music and the band’s official Bandcamp page.

The debut of ‘Abdutions’ comes less than a month after the band debuted the album’s lead single, ‘Sightings’ and its companion video.

The song’s arrangement is a distinct prog-metal work whose guitar riffs, bass work and drumming will appeal to fans of bands, such as Intronaut, Mastodon, and Scale The Summit.

The arrangement is accompanied by the recollection of a man’s alleged alien abduction in 1970 in Canada.  The band talked about the recollection in a prepared statement.

“Two bros, one alien abduction,” the statement reads. “A musical retelling of Charles Hickson’s account of his abduction on the Pascagoula River. Progressive movements mixed technical riffs recount the mind-blowing tale of these two friends.”

The track listing for Enigma Adamantine is noted below.

Track Listing:
1. Heart Beat of Creation (9:48)
2. Sightings (5:08)
3. Abductions (7:05)
