Cattle Decapitation have recently announced their overall ninth studio album Death Atlas will be released on November 29th via Metal Blade Records. Today (18th), the group have revealed the album will be available for pre-order tomorrow exclusively at The Summer Slaughter Tour. The band will be hanging at the merch table, where a special autographed laminate (plus t-shirt) can be purchased, which includes a copy of the CD or digital download on November 29th. For those who are unable to attend the tour, Death Atlas will also be available for pre-orders starting September 5th.
Frontman Travis Ryan commented on their new record:
“We have crafted what we feel is our strongest album to date and we are really looking forward to bringing a couple of the tracks off of it to lacerate your eardrums on this upcoming The Summer Slaughter Tour! Fans soon will witness the culmination of this last year’s blood, sweat and tears honed to a devastating, brutal and impactful audio document that I feel will resonate with fans of the last few records for years to come. Musically and lyrically, there is a lot of grief, anger, hate, passion and emotion poured into this one and we have found these can be excellent ingredients for extreme metal. We are once again rejuvenated and ready to spread the death and despair over this sphere that is perpetually being torn apart by us insignificantes. There is no map to guide you out of this one – ‘Death Atlas’ is coming!”
While we wait for additional details on the follow-up to 2015’s The Anthropocene Extinction, you can check out the album artwork by Wes Benscoter below:
