Allegaeon announce Formshifter release date, free download of new song available

Allegaedon have announced that they will release their new album ‘Formshifter’ on the 8th May via Metal Blade Records. The band entered Lambesis Studios in Southern California with Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, Impending Doom, Carnifex, Winds of Plague) last month to begin work on the album.

Guitarist Greg Burgess had this to say about the new album: “With ‘Formshifter’, I think we kept the sound a lot of our fans love about us, but achieved them through certain compositional challenges. Be it style, or genre mixing, I believe that we seamlessly applied certain elements we didn’t have on Fragments, and it added a color and dimension we didn’t have before”. Guitarist Ryan Glisan adds, “This album to me indicates the future of the band but nods to our past as well. It, to me, is more of where I have envisioned our band being since I started the band a couple years back, it relies on similar songwriting structures and musicality but adds more groove and memorable riffing than our previous efforts.”

You can listen to the first single, ‘Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst,’ from the album and download it from the player below.

Vocalist Ezra Haynes elaborates on the band’s first single from the album; “‘Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst’ is definitely one that sticks out to me. I was raised on Edgar Cayce readings and tales of Atlantis. When Greg [Burgess] and I knew we wanted to touch base on an ancient civilization, Atlantis was the logical choice.”
