Watain have announced that they’ll release a new 7-inch single titled Nuclear Alchemy on October 31.
The Halloween launch will mark the first material lifted from their as-yet-untitled sixth album, which is set to arrive on January 5 via Century Media.
The band say in a statement: “Nuclear Alchemy is the sound of an eager beast let loose from its cage at last. A song of violent fire, impending doom and of necks cracking in ecstacy.
“A dissolving injection of power and force into the coagulated veins of black metal and a first glimpse into the abyss that shall be opened in the beginning of 2018. Meanwhile, stand by for conflagration.”
Watain have scheduled a handful of live shows for January to coincide with the album’s release. Find a list of dates below.
