Official press release:

California's crushing sludge/doom outfit Black Sheep Wall will release their new album through Season of Mist in 2015. The new record is titled I'm Going to Kill Myself and will be released in North America on January 27 (January 26 worldwide).

Regarding the album, guitarist Scott Turner comments:

"It's crazy how much can change in a year or two, but when you think about our history those who have been following us shouldn't be surprised. We're very excited about the release of I am Going to Kill Myself," and the debut of Brandon as our full time vocalist after doing close to 7 years of duty on bass. His voice is the voice I've been waiting to have in the band for years.

"The album was just as much a labor of love as it was an arduous and brain wracking process. Once you hear the songs you'll know what I mean. They are a test of endurance as Jackson and I purposely tried to push the limits of taste for the album which I sometimes like to think of more as a special project than a true follow up album.

"I am Going to Kill Myself is unique to us in that rather than sitting down for formal song writing sessions we kind of just wrote songs through conversations, and with odd symbols and notes on paper that translated to guitar, bass, and drums in the studio. As for the album art, the always amazing Jeff Rogers really came through with beyond amazing artwork that really captures not only the album, but who we are as a band. I don't think we'll ever do anything like this again so hopefully you all enjoy it, and not really want to kill yourselves after, like I wanted to while making this album."
