"'Break the Earth' is a Southern gospel-influenced metalcore ballad," says singer Sean McCulloch. "It is a blending of styles that we love to experiment with. The lyrics and concept express a yearning for a modern-day Moses to lead the North Korean people to freedom from the Kim dynasty.

"Dark Flag is a concept album stemming from the atrocities committed by the Kim regime in North Korea. This album isn't a political statement. This isn't a conservative or liberal agenda. Dark Flag is about human rights and how precious and valuable life is.”

Dark Flag will be released Nov. 17 through Solid State Records, and you can pre-order it here
