Despised Icon have announced they’ll release their first album in seven years this summer.
Entitled Beast, the follow-up to 2009’s Day Of Mourning will launch on July 22 via Nuclear Blast.
The band say in a statement: “It’s been seven years since our last record and our batteries are fully recharged. The O.G. line-up is back and the new shit hits hard.
“You’ll hear sounds of our older slammin’ death metal days blended with the speed and technicality of our latest records. Cheers to everyone that has stood by us after all these years. Can’t wait to unleash the Beast.”
In addition, Despised Icon have issued a teaser for the album. View it below.
The band head out on a European tour later this week.
