Azusa Announce New Album, Release New Track
Former Dillinger Escape Plan bassist Liam Wilson’s band Azusa has announced they’ll be following up their debut, Heavy Yoke, with a new album called Loop of Yesterdays. The record, set for an April 10th release, is described as “more aerodynamic and accessible approach to their intricate sense of songwriting and inherently technical style.”
“Heavy Yoke was the initial impact, Loop of Yesterdays is the aftermath,” says Wilson.
We have a first look at the group’s new effort with the track “Kill/Destroy.” The track features Wilson dishing out a monstrous bass attack as well as a brooding cleaner tone.
“‘Kill/Destroy’ was the last song to be composed in the Loop of Yesterdays session,” the band writes. “We felt like the album needed some more ‘kick in the teeth’ punk/hardcore energy to round things out. The song was an obvious curtain-raiser, so we opened our live set with it on tour last summer as a sneak peek of the new album. Easily digestible yet appropriately unpredictable, ‘Kill/Destroy’ balances raw, thrash-inspired riffing with straight-forward lyrics about transgression and our inner demons being forced to awaken. Confrontational and blunt, ‘Kill/Destroy’ is peak Azusa.”
