Americana black metal outfit Wayfarer has announced that their new album, American Gothic, will be released on October 27. The release will be handled by Profound Lore in the United States and by Century Media elsewhere. As well as the announcement of American Gothic, Wayfarer shared the video for "False Constellation," which was directed by Frank Guerra.
"This album is an exploration of the American idea, and the darkness that surrounds it," says vocalist/guitarist Shane McCarthy. "It was built from the ground up to encapsulate the feeling of this place and its bitter history in every way, fully integrating traditional musical stylings into its darker and more extreme sound, and serves as a definitive statement on Western American Metal.
"We were able to fully realize this in working with producer Arthur Rizk to bring the album to life, and it's in its own territory now. This is the Wayfarer sound, and this is American Gothic. We look forward to sharing it with the world."
