SARAH LONGFIELD has revealed the first new track off “Cataclysm” with a mesmerizing guitar play-through video that is streaming now at Guitar World: https://www.guitarworld.com/news/sarah-longfield-premieres-cataclysm-video – also embedded below:

Regarding the new track, SARAH LONGFIELD comments, “This song is so fun for me to play. There’s a pretty big Animals As Leaders influence, which makes sense as I wrote it the day after seeing one of their shows in Providence, RI. It’s a combo of the way my style has developed over the last few years yet still pays homage to my heavier roots. Hope you enjoy!”

She continues about the album:
“I’ve been fortunate in my musical endeavors to see lots of beautiful places and experience many incredible, but also occasionally strange and dark, things. The contrast has been truly inspiring and this album is documentation of that. Thus, there are many different moods throughout the record. I’m really excited about getting to perform such a varied record live!””

‘Disparity’ sees LONGFIELD raise her virtuosic playing and unique tapping technique (adapted from piano-playing fundamentals) to astounding new heights. Her music defies all genre constriction while artfully melding complex melodies with incredible levels of guitar shred. LONGFIELD is in the vanguard of young players leading the evolution of the modern guitarist, ‘Disparity’ and is a fascinating and mesmerizing glimpse inside the storm.

After years of playing the piano and the violin, multi-instrumentalist Sarah Longfield found her true musical calling when she purchased her first 7-string guitar at the age of 13. Her first EP’s ‘Zeal’ (2011) and ‘Par Avion’ (2012) received high praise from critics and fans alike.

In 2012, Longfield formed the band THE FINE CONTSTANT. In just a few years, the band released two full length albums, and toured the world supporting MARTY FRIEDMAN, ANGEL VIVALDI, POLYPHIA, and performing at festivals such as UK Tech Fest, Euroblast Fest, SXSW, and more. Her band has been hailed as “an exceptional breed of top-notch instrumental metal” (No Clean Singing), featuring “experimental know-how with a more finely-tuned approach to songwriting that bleeds together passages of spacey electronics and intertwining guitar melodies.” (Heavy Blog is Heavy)

Longfield first gained notoriety from her prolific playthrough and guitar demonstrations on her YouTube channel. Since then, Longfield has uploaded a collection of over 100 videos, featuring playthroughs, cover songs, solo material, vlogs, and much more. To date, Longfield’s channel has over 160,000 subscribers, and amassed millions upon millions of views.
