The time has finally come for After The Burial to drop a new single! The long awaited “A Wolf Amongst Ravens” has officially arrived after being played live for months. From the sounds of it, it’s one of the grooviest tracks on the record with a massive, off-kiltered guitar tone which is punctuated with razor tight, rhythmic playing. It also sounds as if it will be one the slower songs on the album, leaving room for the shred.
Alongside the single release, they’ve also put out plenty of information regarding the new album, “Wolves Within”. It will officially hit store shelves on December 17th after the bands re-signing to the metal juggernaut Sumerian Records. Pre-orders are available now! Grab yours right here!
Go ahead and listen to “A Wolf Amongst Ravens” and read the official statement below!
Minnesota based AFTER THE BURIAL have returned with what is being hailed as their career defining album, Wolves Within, which is now set for a Dec 17th release. It’s been three years since the band has released any new material, but upon first listen it’s very evident that it’s been well worth the wait. The tech wizardry is amped way up, the breakdowns are massive and face melting and the vocal delivery is the most devastating yet. Already lauded for their technically impressive yet well structured style of songwriting, AFTER THE BURIAL certainly takes things up a notch or two with this newest outing.
AFTER THE BURIAL has also re-signed with longtime label Sumerian Records and will hit the road across North America this week with DevilDriver and Trivium. A brand new AFTER THE BURIAL track, “A Wolf Amongst Ravens,” can be heard now at the link below and be sure to visit www.facebook.com/aftertheburial to view all tourdates.
Justin Lowe (guitars) states: “We are beyond excited to announce that our new album, Wolves Within, will be released December 17th on Sumerian Records. We’ve spent the last two years pushing our own limits in an attempt to give you what we feel is some of the most crushing and dynamic material we’ve written to date. We feel like this record is a new beginning for us. We are continually trying to push our own musical and creative boundaries that have yet to be explored, and simultaneously paving the way for the future of our sound.
“We also couldn’t be happier to announce that we have re-signed with Sumerian Records. We have so much respect for not only everyone at the label, but for all of the bands on the roster as well. For almost six years, Sumerian has been our home, and the home to many of our favorite bands. None of us could ask for a better setting right now, having the opportunity to work with our friends on a daily basis doing what we love.”
Ash Avildsen (Sumerian Founder) further comments: “Re-signing AFTER THE BURIAL is a momentous day for Sumerian. ATB has been a very important band to the label for many years. They’re a group of great people with diligence and determination for their craft who happen to also be excellent musicians. The cultural significance of AFTER THE BURIAL as a band and Sumerian Records as a brand have grown in tandem and are now at an all time high. Here’s to more years of kicking ass together. Twin Cities Crush FTW.”
