The new Sonic Syndicate album will be a self-titled affair, according to the latest from the band.
The album will drop July 7 in Europe and elsewhere; thus far, there’s no North American date for the release.
The self-titled outing will boast a guest appearance from Soilwork frontman Bjorn “Speed” Strid on the track “Before You Finally Break.”
Says guitarist 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 colour-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.”
