Allegaeon announce new album, premiere song

Thursday, January 31, 2019 12:56 PM PT


Colorado extreme metal band Allegaeon will release a new album titled Apoptosis this spring.

Tracked at Flatline Audio in Denver with producer Dave Otero, the record is the band's first to feature bassist Brandon Michael. "Musically, Brandon brings a huge new dimension," says vocalist Riley McShane. "He has this wide breadth of music knowledge and stylistic proficiency that he draws from with excellent taste, and this makes a lot of the songs on 'Apoptosis' come to life."

The record also features a guest appearance by classical guitarist Christina Sandsengen, who duets with guitarist Greg Burgess on "Colors of the Currents." "On this record, I was more open to new ideas that we might not have used in past," states guitarist Michael Stancel. "Rather than deleting something because 'it's not Allegaeon-y enough', I would take a step back and see if that idea fit the song and decide if it was worth keeping. With that mentality came some of my favorite songs, because I was less worried about if it fit into our old sound."

Apoptosis will hit streets on April 19 via Metal Blade Records, and accompanying the announcement is a Robert Graves-directed video for new single "Stellar Tidal Disruption." You can check that out here:

Kinda reminds me of Deftones, not necessarily musically or lyrically, but just the way a lot of Deftones songs have moments that seem like the singer is singing a completely different song than what the music is playing, but then it all coalesces & connects the moment the chorus begins. The outro - "I eat yuguuurt, the man variety (X16)" really hits home with all of the users on this site because they all suck dck. 5/5

Odd I get a random Cash.App text, isn't for me. Should I forward the app to D.J Trump?

Even more strange...when a woman lies for months on end, dear Robert. I don't give a shit if you're in court the day I press charges and it goes to court.
