Ten years ago today, influential Southern California band Eighteen Visions
(18V) played what was expected to be their final show. A decade later, they've officially resurfaced and will soon release their first new studio album since 2006.
On June 2, Eighteen Visions (vocalist James Hart, guitarist Keith Barney, and drummer Trevor Friedrich) will release a new record titled XVIII
through Rise Records
(pre-orders are available
). The album was recorded in Orange County, CA with UK transplant, multi-instrumentalist, and band friend Mick Kenney
(of Anaal Nathrakh) producing. Among its tracks is "Live Again," a tribute to bassist Mick Morris, who passed away in 2013. A video for the album's lead single, "Oath," is online now and can be viewed below along with the record's track listing.
Meanwhile, 18V will return to the stage for the first time since 2007 on Friday, June 2 for a record release show at The Observatory in Orange County. Tickets can be found here
