Welcome The Sickness 03. Through Our Darkest Days 04. Dreamstate Machine 05. A Moment Of Clarity 06. Beyond This Night 07. Starving Eyes 08. Generation Hate 09. Forever The Unknown 10. Holding Onto Serenity (digital bonus track) Recorded with longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Heaven Shall Burn) at Hansen Studios, "Through Our Darkest Days" is scheduled for a North American release on July 30 via Prosthetic Records. According to the band, the album's cover art by Mircea Eftemie (Soilwork, Mnemic) "symbolizes a darkness that we have gone through as a band, which we feel that we have finally been able to put behind us." The title, meanwhile, "is meant very positively and thematizes both the journey through existential darkness as a general theme and the ability to break through it. The lyrical universe is very much about making the most of life and not getting caught up in negativity." More information on the album, including pre-order packages, will be unveiled shortly.
