High On Fire Plot Fall Release For New Album


High On Fire‘s forthcoming eighth studio album will land in September. The band’s frontman/guitarist Matt Pike revealed the news in the below interview with Orange Amps, offering:

“Our album drops in September. Yeah, it’s really, it’s really difficult music. I can do some after practices but no need to put it out there yet. I’ll put it out there near when the album is dropping or something.”

The band finished tracking the effort in March with Converge‘s Kurt Ballou once again primarily at the helm. They have already lined up a few festival appearances for later in the year around the album’s release, as well as a European/UK tour with Obituary. Here’s how their schedule looks around then:
