Doll Skin joined the Hopeless Records family. The band also announced their next album, Love Is Dead And We Killed Her.

They began teasing fans earlier this month, tweeting a SpongeBob SquarePants-inspired meme. With it, they included “you know what’s better than 24? 23…,” which we now know is today’s date and their big reveal.

They continued the cryptic posts throughout the month with rat-inspired messaging. Last Saturday, they tweeted “Tuesday? Tuesday.” then changed their profile picture to the color red.

Today, Doll Skin finally announced their Hopeless signing and the new album.

The LP is inspired by events that heavily affected the band.

“This album was written about traumatic or extraordinary events that have impacted us as humans and wanted to share those emotions with people who can relate,” they explain. “We want to be vocal for those who may feel like they don’t have a voice. Lots of these songs tackled issues that upset us, and we want to put out a message that we feel matters and to have a point behind all of our songs.”

The album was recorded with Mike Green (Pierce The Veil, As It Is) and Will McCoy (All Time Low, 5 Seconds Of Summer.) It’s available for preorder here, and fans will receive new single “Mark My Words” instantly as a grat track. Love Is Dead And We Killed Her drops June 28.

Doll Skin also released a The Craft-inspired music video for the new song which you can check out below.
