According to guitarist Jake Bowen, the Grammy-nominated act worked on their upcoming offering for a year. "We've never been able to do that," he says. "The quality and pacing of the work show we took our time with this one. That's an important note about this. We really got to do everything we wanted to do in the space we had to do it."
"We've known since the late stages of P4 writing sessions that 'Blood Eagle' would be the first song we released," guitarist Mark Holcomb says in a statement. "It's an unrelenting song that, even while we were writing it, we would say to ourselves: 'We NEED To play this live.'"
Periphery IV: Hail Stan is due on April 5 (Friday) via 3DOT Recordings. Pre-order bundles are available here.
