Bury Tomorrow will release their seventh studio album, the fittingly titled The Seventh Sun, on March 31, via Music For Nations.

To mark this news, the British hardcore metallers have shared the album's ferocious first single, Abandon Us.

Accompanying the track is a cinematic, horror-inspired short film directed by Matt Sears, which sees Bury Tomorrow deliver a hard-hitting performance from within a shadowy woodland. However, it's revealed that the band are not alone, for the wood is home to an enchanting but un-unnervingly menacing cult of forest dwellers...

Speaking of the new track, Bury Tomorrow say in a statement: "it started with a demo simply entitled, Abandon. Taken from a time of loss, uncertainty and insecurity, the intent was to create a heavy track that mirrored these feelings. The lyrics highlight the frustration and anger at the current state of our society and how our so-called leaders seem intent on satisfying self-interest above the collective needs of humanity."

Of the forthcoming album, they declare: "We are proud to present The Seventh Sun. It is an understatement to say we are excited to share the new era of Bury Tomorrow with you all, and the first single from the album, Abandon Us, is the perfect way to showcase our intent for the next phase of our band.

"Visceral and heavy, this track is for each and every one of you that has stood by us either from the beginning, or supported us along the way."

Later this month, Bury Tomorrow will be embarking on a European/UK tour, kicking off on October 21 in Brighton.
