Sludge/stoner metal icons Electric Wizard have confirmed that they will release their new album, ‘Time To Die’, later this year via Spinefarm Records. You can check out the album artwork, as well as a statement from founding member, Jus Oborn, below:
“All of our albums in the past have had a theme – revenge, drugs, black magick – and the theme of this one is death. Of course, death to us really means rebirth, so this album is a manifestation of a very primal occult belief in the final sacrifice. We have gone full circle – it was inevitable, but we had to do it. We had to kill the band so we could be reborn. It was the only way to ensure we could come back even stronger.”
More details surrounding the album, including a finalised release date and full tracklisting, will be confirmed over the coming weeks.
