It is coming.
The self-titled fifth album from Anglo-Swedish modern metal powerhouse Sonic Syndicate will be available come July 4, as part of a deal with Nuclear Blast.
Says Sonic Syndicate’s Robin Sjunnesson:
“We decided to go with this one as a ‘self-titled’ release. Mainly because as an album, we have put everything we’ve got into it. All of our experience as musicians, the evolution of the music, the sound from all eras of the band, and also the road we have taken as people. This is us, this is Sonic Syndicate in all its beauty and destruction. It shows our strength, our love for melody, our scars, our energy.
“The cover art is a definite representation of that. In the background, a battle-torn city laid to waste, four figures emerging together with only each other to depend on in an environment so harsh, only those with a tough heart, body and soul can survive.
“The tone throughout this album is definitely darker, and as my Swedish family would say, ‘with a red line running in the middle,’ so we put this into the color scheme. We could not be more proud of this album, and we thank our fans for the support; it’s because of them that we’re here. This album is for you.”
The album will also feature a guest appearance by Soilwork’s Björn “Speed” Strid on the track “Before You Finally Break.”
The guest spot likely provided a nice pay day for Björn.
