SPV/Steamhammer have confirmed a May 27th street date for A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH's new album and follow-up to their 2011 debut, And Hell Will Follow Me. The band has once again commissioned famed artist Sam Shearon AKA Mister-Sam to create the artwork for the as yet-untitled album.
Frontman Sal Abruscato (LIFE OF AGONY/ex-TYPE O NEGATIVE) gives an update on the album: "The sound has evolved and become a bit more orchestrated. More harmony work has been done on this album, including new elements such as a Hammond B3 organ and piano. To me the album has an even darker sound and feel than the first one."
He continued, "The new album is a natural progression in song writing and vocals yet keeping continuity with the first album musically and artistically. Fans of our first album will find all the traits they love melded with even bigger production and mastering. Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound will be mastering the album."
More information will be released in the coming weeks.
