EYEHATEGOD, whose eagerly-awaited new album, A History of Nomadic Behavior, arrives on March 12, join fans for an online album listening party on March 11, taking the audience through each track as they give attendees an opportunity to hear the 12-song before its release.
“Be the first to cut to the front of the line to check out the new album, A History of Nomadic Behavior, before its official release date,” says Eyehategod singer Mike IX Williams. “Refill your prescriptions and make use of your lockdown time while we spin the newest EHG material. Dress accordingly.”
Revolver and Full Metal Jackie, in association with Century Media Records, host the celebratory evening, with the event streaming at 1 p.m. pacific/4 p.m. eastern on Revolver’s YouTube channel.
“I’m really excited to host Eyehategod’s upcoming listening party! I’m a huge fan– these guys helped pioneer NOLA sludge and have inspired countless artists.” Adds Full Metal Jackie. “Dangerous music for dangerous people! A History of Nomadic Behavior is their first new record in seven years — they sound lean & mean as ever!!”
News of the celebratory evening arrives as the band unveils a lyric video for “Built Beneath The Lies”, a song Metal Injection called a “acidic, sludgy affair from the Southern lords of riff” and Brooklyn Vegan dubbed a “rager.” Check it out HERE!
“Built Beneath the Lies” is the third preview from the forthcoming A History of Nomadic Behavior, with the New Orleans-based band releasing both the “bulldozing” (Revolver) song “Fake What’s Yours” and the prescient “banger” ( Stereogum) “High Risk Trigger”. Early coverage of the album points to a worthy return for the storied sludge outfit, with The Pit saying A History of Nomadic Behavior “keeps up their incredible legacy” and Exclaim noting the release “offers all of the moody, distorted aggression that we’ve come to expect from the band.”
The album’s arrivalfollows a period that saw the New Orleans based band on the road for three years, preceded by Williams suffering liver failure and a transplant. “We toured our asses off for three years and that’s where A History of Nomadic Behavior basically comes from,” adds Williams before touching on his health challenge: “Death is a part of life, it’s a roll of the dice. Sometimes you take life as it comes, other times you fight to stay alive .” The album was produced by Eyehategod, Sanford Parker (Yob, Voivod) and James Whitten (Thou, High on Fire), with mixing by Whitten. The band recorded at HighTower Recording and Hypercube studios.
The album is available in various formats and can be pre – ordered HERE!
