It’s their seventh album, out next week on Epitaph, described by one SOTC buddy as “Converge from the future,” which gets at the band’s ever growing monster tech virtuosity but not the record’s old-fashioned ability to turn minds to ashes. It’s streaming on MySpace–start with “Dark Horse” or “Worms Will Feed” and tell us we’re wrong. The band is on tour now; they touch down in NYC for two Hammerstein dates October 29th and 30th, where they’ll share a bill with the murderers row of Mastodon, Dethklok, and High On Fire. Tickets here.
