Stick To Your Guns have announced that they’ll release an EP next month.

Titled Better Ash Than Dust, it will arrive on September 23 via Pure Noise Records, and will be the US outfit’s first material since they launched fifth album Disobedient in February 2015.

The five-track EP is available for pre-order via the Pure Noise website in a variety of bundles, and the band have streamed The Neverending Story ahead of release. Listen to it below.

Better Ash Than Dust also features Universal Language which Stick To Your Guns revealed in July. They had planned to launch the track at a later date but brought the release forward following the spate of shootings across the US and the bombings in Baghdad which left 292 people dead last month.

They dedicated the song to victims of violence across the world.

Frontman Jesse Barnett said: “This song is for the world who only communicates with violence and to those who only open their mouth when things get bloody. There is a better way and I am confident we will get there some day.”

Stick To Your Guns are currently on tour across Europe.
