San Francisco/North Bay-based progressive deathcore unit ÆNIMUS have launched pre-orders for their forthcoming debut album, Transcend Reality, which is now set for release on August 6th. The band have also unveiled the cover art, which was done by Hal Rotter of Rotting Graphics.

‘Descent Into Chaos’
‘Black Malice Construct’
‘Black Malice Alchemy’
‘Heavy Lies The Crown’

Bassist Seth Stephens had the following to say about all the work that's gone into the album and finally being able to set an official release date: "It is our absolute pleasure to announce our debut album, Transcend Reality, will be released on August 6th, 2013. We have spent the last three years working very hard to write the best album possible, and we are confident that our fans will love it.
We have several pre-order packages to choose from with limited edition items and an instant download of our newest single 'Inertia' with every order. For our amazing fans that have waited the last three years and continued to support us by coming out to shows, buying merch and sharing our posts, we have done something special just for you! The first 100 pre-orders will include a free 11x17 signed Transcend Reality poster, with the names of those 100 awesome people printed on the poster with a special thank you. This is our way to include some of you in the making of this album on a more personal level, to show you just how thankful we are of your support.
Also, as you all know, an album release would not be proper without an album release tour! Yes, that's right! We will be hitting the road in August for the release of Transcend Reality with our Dads, SISYPHEAN CONSCIENCE, from Portland, OR. Details and official tour dates will be announced very soon, and we couldn't be more excited to hit the road again and share this new album with you all.
Thank you for your continued support and please pre-order Transcend Reality today!"
