And to whet the appetites of punk metal fans everywhere, the Buffalo band has completed work on lead video Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space.
One of 11 tracks on the new album (excluding three beefed-up bonus songs), the song is a typically brutal take on real life courtesy of flamboyant frontman Keith Buckley – and offers a tantalising taste of things to come.
The ETID singer said: “In order to write lyrics I had to pay attention to the defeatism that the music suggested.
“To compile the UBFOS video I had to acknowledge the masochism I wrote of to myself.
“You don’t get rewarded for your faith and you don’t get celebrated for your heroism. Just when you find yourself attached, you have lost it. Everything is borrowed. C’est la vie.”
