ILSA announce new album, debut first single

Washington DC's ILSA return with their sixth full-length album, Preyer coming November 20 through Relapse Records. The album's first single, "Poor Devil," can be streamed here: ILSA frontman Orion comments on the new track: "'Poor Devil' sprung from study of Potter's Fields and the story of Judas Iscariot, where I found parallels with Satanic murderer Sean Seller's 'betrayal' by his best friend and Judas' role as biblical scapegoat. For such a lynchpin in the Passion of Christ, Judas was never afforded the reverence of the other disciples; forever damned as an unredeemable traitor, while the story could never be complete without his participation. The Potter's Field where Judas hung himself became the burial grounds of the discarded and unclaimed dead, and the name stuck to this day. Apologies to D.I.'s 'Richard Hung Himself', where we snuck a nod to the one of the best punk songs ever written." Preyer track listing: 01. Epigraph 02. Poor Devil 03. Moonflower 04. Shibboleth 05. Mother of God 06. Scavengers 07. Widdershins 08. Preyer 09. Lady Diamond 10. Behind the Veil 11. The Square Coliseum
