With all their “Might”, Edmonton, Canada's Juliet Ruin spent most of 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic writing new music. They were originally planning to just release one single for 2021, but as true musicians, the creative juices kept on flowing and the end result is the band's new EP “Dark Water”, due out on Friday, March 26th.
In celebration of the EP's release, the band is sharing their music video for the record's closing track “Might”.
"'Might' is the fourth and final song, completing the release of the Dark Water EP from Juliet Ruin. Might is a rising from the ashes anthem that goes out to everyone dealing with their own personal hell, especially in these current times."

Following their highly praised 2019 album "Old Stardust, Love, and Chaos", Juliet Ruin's new EP “Dark Water” represents a step into a heavier domain for the band as they continue on with low-tuned guitars. The vocals on this record will certainly shock old fans and draw in new fans as frontwoman Jess’ work in the scream vocal area is apparent throughout as she raised the bar on the clean vocals as well with many pop diva-esque techniques. Fans familiar with the band's sound on previous releases will notice the evolution in a heavier direction.
"The listening experience we are going for is a hard-edged, but catchy experience with lyrics you can shout in anger, but also it leans positive on message." adds the band.
Juliet Ruin is recommended for anyone who enjoys heavy and melodic metal with powerful vocals, especially those who already have The Agonist, Jinjer, and Killswitch Engage in rotation.
“Dark Water”will be available on March 26, 2021.

“Every band needs to find that element which connects them with a fanbase, and Juliet Ruin has done that early on in their career.” – V13
“Pre-album single “Spite” that features a Sprite logo is also reminiscent of “Cloud Factory” era Jinjer with an excellent vocal range on show. Blending riffs seamlessly with gravity defying leaps between sub-genres from classic Metal to Hard Rock to Metalcore, it’s a nice twist on the conventional approach.” – Metal Noise
“If you are into Halestorm, Jinjer, Killswitch Engage you are gonna fall in love with this group not just a bit. But madly and deeply! Grab a hold of this gem of a release on the 6th of September you aint gonna regret it , cos Juliet Ruin aint gonna “Ruin” ya day they are gonna make it !! ” – The Metal Gods Meltdown
“From hardrock, to metalcore and everythign in between, Juliet Ruin delivers a fun and interesting record with many sounds, attitudes and emotions.” – Heavy New York
“Juliet Ruin’s sound is comparable to a muddier version of Alexisonfire, with Ruin guiding the songs with her powerful voice while being backed up by Geislinger’s harsh screams and growls…. Juliet Ruin has been gaining more recognition after every concert with its single “Rogue Down” receiving a nomination at the Edmonton Music Awards.” – Vue Weekly (2017)
