HAVOK – announce fourth studio album and European headline tour for 2017

Thrash-metal stalwarts HAVOK are thrilled to announce the details of their upcoming new studio album, titled “Conformicide”. The Denver/USA based group will unleash their fourth full-length record on March 10th, 2017 via Century Media Records, along with touring in both North America and Europe next year to support the release.

“Conformicide” is the follow up to the band’s 2013 effort, “Unnatural Selection”. Discussing what fans can expect from the new record, David Sanchez (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) comments: “‘Conformicide’ is our most dynamic, heavy, thoughtful, musical, and sonically-crushing album so far. All four members feel that this is the best HAVOK album to date. There are a lot of “truth bombs” being dropped on this record and the music absolutely rips!”

Building on Sanchez’s comments, Reece Scruggs (lead guitar) adds: “This album swings for the fences in every way. Sonically stunning, technically proficient and lyrically pissed, we’ve never been represented at our best until this moment in time. We cannot wait for the world to react to Conformicide.”

In the shop for almost three years, HAVOK’s “Conformicide” is undoubtedly their “Master of Puppets” or “Rust in Peace” moment. True, the Denver-based rippers have bled out guts, brains, and cash on previous albums “Unnatural Selection” (2013), “Time is Up” (2011), and “Burn” (2009), but none of them compare to the ear-destroying, mind-flaying “Conformicide”.

““Conformicide” is faster and way angrier than “Unnatural Selection”,” says vocalist/guitarist/founding member David Sanchez. “On this album, the music is very layered and dynamic and the lyrics say a lot about the current state of the world.'”

As previously mentioned, HAVOK will return to the road in 2017 with extensive touring schedules in both North American and Europe. Expressing the band’s level of enthusiasm to bring their fans an even heavier and more energized live show than ever before, Sanchez states, “We can’t wait to perform some new music live and present a show that people won’t forget!  Expect to see HAVOK like you’ve never seen before. We’re ready to destroy!”
