Whitechapel have announced their new album – it will be called The Valley and out on March 29th via Metal Blade Records.
Today, the band unveiled the second single from the album, "Black Bear" and it's very heavy.
This track follows the release of the song "The Brimstone" a few weeks back. Listen to that here.
The story of the album teases that it's "based on true events." The press release elaborates the title of the song is a refrence to Hardin Valley, west of Knoxville, Tennessee, where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Bozeman explains:
“It’s all about me as a child, and some of it is me looking back on that time from the perspective of now. Also, it’s my interpretation of my mom’s struggles and her different personalities. She had a journal that contained very disturbing and sometimes evil writings, and some of her quotes and a lot of that journal is in the lyrics.”
Pre-orders are now available. Here's the cover art.
