Official press release: Upon A Burning Body return with a vicious new slab of brutality, Southern Hostility, which is out June 7th on Seek and Strike. The album's first single, "King of Diamonds," is a face-melter and its official music video, directed by Scott Hansen (Motionless In White, Sevendust), can be viewed now below. The band will do a series of Texas-area headlining, record release shows June 6-8th. Ruben (guitars) states: "We simply felt it was time for a change. This new album is definitely a huge statement for us. It was time to reinvent ourselves and get back to our roots - pure heavy fucking metal! The energy of this album takes us back to our first two, but with much more maturity. "We worked for two months with Christopher Mora (producer) and our younger brother, Thomas Alvarez (co-producer). They are both amazing song writers and were able to help us create fresh and infectious ideas. The four of us worked together to create a fresh, raw and energetic sound. We took influences from some of the greatest metal bands of all-time (Pantera, Metallica, etc), in order to fill a void that many people are craving and need. Once we finished tracking and putting the final touches we realized we created an album that would change everything for us. This is what everyone has been waiting for: no gimmicks and just straight in your face metal!" Upon A Burning Body record release shows: 6/6 Houston, TX @ The Secret Group 6/7 Dalls, TX @ The Curtain Club 6/8 San Antonio, TX @ Paper Tiger

I thought the singer was still kidnapped

The singer was really kidnapped this time, guys. I am super serial! There is a ransom note that says 20,000 people must buy this album for him to be returned unharmed!

will this be on the taken 4 soundtrack?

^ I like it. I can hear it in my head. In the middle of the breakdown the singer needs to scream, "RED BULL GIVES YOU WIIIIIIINGS!" and then it really kicks up.

They're much better at faking kidnappings than making music. Awful stuff.

Just when I thought they couldn't get any worse, they kept writing music. I tell you what.
