Whitechapel detail Mark Of The Blade


Whitechapel have announced their sixth album Mark Of The Blade will be issued in June and released a lyric video for the title track.

Mark Of The Blade – the follow-up to 2014’s Our Endless War – arrives on June 24 via Metal Blade Records. The tracklist and album art can be viewed below.

Guitarist Alex Wade says. “At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us.”

Mark Of The Blade is available for pre-order now. Whitechapel have a string of tour dates lined up for 2016.
