0

The Absence will have their new album “A Gift For The Obsessed” in stores on March 23rd through M-Theory Audio. The effort will be the band’s first full-length in roughly eight years and a Tommy Jones (Slayer, Testament) directed video for the title track has been made available below. Vocalist Jamie Stewart commented:

“‘A Gift For The Obsessed‘ embodies many of the dynamics that The Absence stand for as a whole: melody, brutality, speed, dexterity, cadence, etc. — a truly comprehensive and cohesive listening experience indeed! The title of the album/song refers to that very moment when any artist or creator makes something to the integral point of satisfaction — when your craft meets your obsession in furious culmination, and you are finally able to take a step back, if only for just a moment, completely fulfilled by the fruits of your artistic labor. It‘s one of the most maddening yet needed satisfactions in life — exorcism through creation.”

Notably the band have covered Suicidal Tendencies‘ “You Can’t Bring Me Down” on the record with guest vocals from Soilwork/The Night Flight Orchestra frontman Bjorn “Speed” Strid. Pre-orders are up now at this location.
