Perhaps they're experimenting with a new approach to releasing music, but Michigan metalcore act LGND (aka Legend) and record label Rise Records released the band's new album today, all without previously announcing its release date, letting fans know the record was complete, or previewing any new music.

Regardless, the group's new self-titled album is now commercially available. Lyricist and vocalist Chad Ruhlig had this to say:

"After nearly 4 years without new music on the shelves I'm very proud to announce the release of our 3rd full length album LGND. This self titled record marks the start of a new era for this band. While a majority of people will cast us out for taking a step in a new direction, it also comes with much pride to release an album with an individual who has the same drive and vision as yourself.

"There's a point where every artist takes a step back to look at where they are in an industry flooded with trends, scams, and politics. This album is a product of two men who have nothing left to prove to anybody in this world. We wrote a record that we wanted to release regardless of what we thought ANYBODY would want to hear. We opened our minds to progression and something new. While this album still has what many of you have been expecting from us, it also shows you where we are heading with the future of LGND. With that being said, thank you to everyone who has stuck by our side in silence waiting for this album to drop. We hope you enjoy this one, and the many more to come."
