I Killed The Prom Queen, ‘Beloved’ Album Premiere

I Killed The Prom Queen have partnered with AP for the exclusive premier of their new album, Beloved. The album was recorded in Gothenburg, Sweden (the melodic death metal holy land) with producer Fredrik Nordström (Bring Me The Horizon, At The Gates, In Flames).

“We’ve really extended ourselves,” says founding guitarist/vocalist Jona Weinhofen, “But we’ve done it in a way where it’s tasteful and it makes sense with the music. It’s not like we’ve gone from sounding like a metalcore band to sounding like Dimmu Borgir. It still sounds very much like Prom Queen.”

Beloved is set to be released on February 18 via Epitaph Records. (Pre-orders are available here.) Stream it below, and tell us what you think.

The album is currently featured as the highlight review in AP 308, which is in stores now. In the review, AP writer Dan Slessor gives Beloved 4/5 stars and recommends the track “Kjærlighet.”

The band recently released a music video for the song “Thirty One & Sevens,” which is taken from the new album.
