Iconic NOLA sludge merchants Eyehategod will release their first studio album for 13 years this Spring.
Eyehategod will land on May 26 via Century Media and features drummer Joey LaCaze’s final contributions to the band, with the sticksman sadly passing away in August last year.
“I have to say I don’t believe we’ve lost nary a step in the creation of this album and we think these newer songs are a killer combination of classic EHG mixed along with our best production, mixing, engineering and songwriting in 13 years,” offers frontman Mike IX. “The main and total tragic break in the chain was obviously last year’s death of our great friend and drummer Joey LaCaze. However, his original drum tracks made it onto the final master recordings and we’re fucking psyched about that.”
Parts of the album were recorded at longtime friend and general metal legend Phil Anselmo’s home studio, with the first track from the opus, Agitation! Propaganda!, available for streaming below:
