Great Deceivers Find Their Way Through The Noise on New Single "Orienteering"

It’s been nearly two years since they’ve released their last album, but Chicago’s Great Deceivers are back with a new, self-released LP, due out later this month. Hailing from the Windy City’s beloved DIY scene, Great Deceivers is a rock outfit made up of Seth Engel, Russell Harrison, Ben Rudolph, and Max Green.

We’re so excited to premiere their new single “Orienteering”, off of their forthcoming record In Spirit, which will be released on January 19th. With hints of post-punk, 90’s grunge, and touches of emo, “Orienteering” morphs and shifts between sparse and heavy moments punctuated by profound lyricism. The title of the track comes from a sport of the same name that involves navigating through unfamiliar terrain using only a map and compass. The song is an audio interpretation of the sport, as the track itself feels like a journey into somewhere unknown, with only the crooning vocals to guide us through an otherwise dynamic and forceful soundscape.       

Check out “Orienteering” below.
