Defeater have announced their new studio album ‘Abandoned’, will be released net month.
The news of the full-length, out on August 28th, comes alongside the video for lead single ‘Spared In Hell’, which you can check out below.
‘Abandoned’ was recorded following singer Derek Archambault undergoing life-changing surgery which repaired severe hip damage – and describes “the story of a lapsed Catholic priest, whose battles in Europe during the war drag him towards faith and then his own poisonous faithlessness”.
Typical Defeater, then.
Speaking about the record, Archambault explains: “One of the threads running through this record is how people sometimes look for the answers to their problems in the darkest places.”
Defeater are currently on tour in the UK and mainland Europe, and will return this autumn in support of the album on the Impericon Never Say Die! Tour.
