Born Of Osiris has formally announced plans to release a new album this winter. The effort has been titled The Simulation and will arrive on January 11 through Sumerian Records. To coincide with the announcement, the band has issued a new single call "The Accursed." Its official music video can be found below.
Lee McKinney (guitars) comments: "The first single and video for 'The Accursed' plays exactly off of the album titles and themes. People are stuck and addicted to machines, social media, virtual realities and anything that creates a life or reality that's not their own. Our phones have become an extension of ourselves, a body part. We play games or throw on virtual headsets that literally suck us out of the reality we live and into a fantasy. What's the future going to look like, a simulation? Could the simulation have already begun?"
As for the new record, McKinney says, "This new album keeps the integrity high across the board. I want to make the best songs I could for the people who are listening (and myself), and I want to perform them to their best ability on stage to give the people attending our shows those 'wow' moments. We want to give them those concert memories that'll last a lifetime."
The Simulation track listing:
1. The Accursed
3. Cycles of Tragedy
4. Under the Gun
6. Analogs in a Cell
7. Silence the Echo
8. One Without the Other
