UPON A BURNING BODY return with a vicious new slab of brutality, Southern Hostility, which is out June 7th on Seek and Strike.
The album’s first single, 'King of Diamonds', is an absolute face-melter and its official music video, directed by Scott Hansen (Motionless In White, Sevendust), can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/SQcN4tYJfjI
The band will do a series of US headline record release shows in June and will announce more tour dates soon.
Ruben (guitars) states: “We simply felt it was time for a change. This new album is definitely a huge statement for us. It was time to reinvent ourselves and get back to our roots - pure heavy fucking metal! The energy of this album takes us back to our first two, but with much more maturity.
"We worked for two months with Christopher Mora (producer) and our younger brother, Thomas Alvarez (co-producer). They are both amazing songwriters and were able to help us create fresh and infectious ideas. The four of us worked together to create a fresh, raw and energetic sound. We took influences from some of the greatest metal bands of all-time (Pantera, Metallica, etc.), in order to fill a void that many people are craving and need. Once we finished tracking and putting the final touches we realized we created an album that would change everything for us. This is what everyone has been waiting for: no gimmicks and just straight in your face metal!”
