Global Music Award-winning heavy metal group ENEMY REMAINS recently announced the upcoming release of their new album, No Faith In Humanity, hitting digital and physical retailers on January 20, 2017 (pre-order via iTunes). After charging out of the gate with the release of their thunderous title track “No Faith In Humanity” (watch video here), ENEMY REMAINS are wasting no time by immediately unleashing their second single, “Trust In No One”. Take a listen to this unrelenting melodic metal offering via BraveWords HERE.
Guitarist Tommy Blardo states, “”Trust in No One” was written as a fast, driving aggressive style with the roots of our progressive side on the verses and very hooky choruses. Lyrically, the track conveys the idea that only YOU can control the path you’re on and to never rely on false promises. Only you can make a difference in your own life!”
No Faith In Humanity features pre-production by Jeffrey Weed (Trivium, Korn) and Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Sepultura, Halford). The album was recorded, engineered and mixed by Nick Bellmore (Toxic Holocaust, Jasta, Kingdom of Sorrow) at Dexters Lab Recording, and mastered by Chris Zeuss Harris (Rob Zombie, Queensrÿche, Hatebreed).

Previously, Blardo stated, “I think our fans are going to be very surprised with the new direction of the band. On this release, we’re very focused on vocal melodies and driving songwriting, while still finding room for those anthem-like choruses. Don’t worry though, being driven by Steve, we’re definitely keeping the progressive sound we’ve always been known for. We worked really hard on the new album and we’re excited to share it with our fans.”
In anticipation of the upcoming release, ENEMY REMAINS will perform their first local event of 2017 on January 13 at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT. The band will perform as part of a two-day fest, also featuring Alcoholica (classic Metallica tribute from CT with all original line up feat. Kai Blackwood, Ross Ragusa, Ron Celentano, & Opus Lawrence), Sworn Enemy, Dead By Wednesday, Revenge Against God, The Shape and Devil Inside.

About ENEMY REMAINS:
ENEMY REMAINS was formed in 2005 by original Fates Warning drummer, Steve Zimmerman, and guitarist Tommy Blardo. After releasing their first full-length album, Two Faces Two Minds, sharing the stage with rock luminaries such as Alice Cooper, Queensrÿche and Heaven & Hell, being the first local artist invited to perform at Hartford, CT’s new 20,000 capacity stadium, XL Center, and having their song “Live For Today” featured in the Rock Band for Xbox, by 2014, the band had solidified themselves as a talent to be reckoned with in the northeastern US.
After a brief hiatus last year – allowing Zimmerman to re-join the original Fates Warningline-up reunion celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Awaken The Guardian, and for Blardo to develop his nationally-recognized digital radio station “Metal Fortress Radio” – ENEMY REMAINS is back with the addition of new vocalist Frank Morin and guitarist Scott Kadish, formerly of End Time Illusion.
ENEMY REMAINS is:
Steve Zimmerman – Drums
Bob Bryk – Keyboards
Tommy Blardo “The Beast” – Guitars/Vocals
Frank Morin – Vocals
Jeff Curtis – Bass
Scott Kadish – Guitars
