Winds Of Plague are set to release their new album Resistance tomorrow, October 29, via Century Media, but you can get a first taste of the new record–which the band tells us has been a long time in the making–via the AP-exclusive stream below.
“We wrote and recorded our fourth full-length record in late 2012. For various reasons, we decided to wait until late 2013 to release it, not the least of which was to ensure that we had given enough time to listen to, analyze and absorb the record for ourselves,” the band told AP in a statement.
“It was an extremely odd way to go about preparing for a record release, but it allowed us to be 100 percent certain that this was the record that best represented what we have become as a band. It's definitely a cliche these days, but after a year of listening to the record and anticipating it's release, I can say with complete honesty that this is the best Winds of Plague record to date.
We are confident that old fans will be able to really dig into the new record and we're hopeful that new listeners can find this record and see something in Winds of Plague that is new and fresh. Thank you to everyone that has stuck with us and been patient while we prepared to release this record, we are extremely grateful. We hope that everyone who listens to it finds something they enjoy, and we look forward to seeing new and old fans on the road in the coming months.
Without further adieu, we are extremely proud to finally share with you: RESISTANCE.”
