Back in January, Veil of Maya announced that their new vocalist was Lukas Magyar of Arms of Empire. They also unveiled a song, “Phoenix.” Now they’re announcing the release date, title and artwork for the band’s fifth album. Matriarch will be out on May 12th. In addition to releasing that information, the band have also released a video for a second song on the album, “Mikasa.” While it’s still deathcore and unmistakably Veil of Maya, there is some melody in the choruses, which make sense given that Periphery’s Spencer Sotelo produced the vocals on the album.
You can preorder the album, which comes out on May 12 on Sumerian Records, here.
