Bury Tomorrow will release their sixth album Cannibal on April 3 via Music For Nations/Sony Music.

The band's 2018 album Black Flame catapulted them into metal's upper echelon. It was the band's third consecutive UK Top 40 album — quite the feat for a heavy band — and took them on a tour which culminated with a huge show at London's iconic Roundhouse. But with the follow-up, Cannibal, the band has taken another leap forward.

Cannibal is stacked with glorious vocal hooks, razor-sharp riffs and sublime melodies that will solidify their seat at UK metal's top table.

To record Cannibal, the band reunited with SikTh guitarist and Black Flame producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns), while mixing and mastering was completed by Adam "Nolly" Getgood and Ermin Hamidovic, the dream team behind Architects' Holy Hell. The result is Bury Tomorrow's most technical, anthemic album yet.

And while vocalist Dani Winter Bates has long been one of metal's loudest advocates for the importance of discussing mental health, this time he's delved explicitly into his own experiences, writing his most brutally personal lyrics to date.

"This album is for me as well as for the fans," Bates says. "It was a cathartic process to address some of the darkest moments I've had in my life. For some people, it'll be a hard listen. But I thought I have to do this. If I'm going to go in, I'm going to go in. I'm not doing something half-arsed. There is nothing lyrically I would change on this entire album."

Work on Cannibal started almost immediately after the band released the deluxe version of Black Flame in June 2019, and was completed partly on the road. Soon after, the band headed to the studio, recording drums and rhythm guitars at Middle Farm studios, in South Devon, with the remainder of the album recorded at Vale studios in Worcestershire. Putting into practice the lessons they had learned when making Black Flame, the band tore into, rewrote, and scrapped any tracks that weren't up to scratch.

While the process was far from easy and pushed the band musically and emotionally to their limit, there's no doubt that this is their best and bravest album to date. Now 14 years into their career, Cannibal will be the album that takes Bury Tomorrow to even greater heights. 2020 will be their year.

"I want it to grow our fan base and capitalize on what we did with Black Flame," says Dani. "Black Flame connected with a lot of people. I want Cannibal to take us to a new part of our career. It's a great starting point for a discussion, I'm excited for people to hear it."
