DEFEATER announce new album; release new video for “Spared In Hell”

2 mins read

DEFEATER have premiered a new song, “Spared in Hell”, via a music video! Pre-orders for the new album are available here, with an iTunes pre-order for the deluxe version containing two bonus tracks and a digital booklet here.

The band recorded it earlier this year with guitarist and longtime in-house producer Jay Maas. The label says that “Abandoned is the most relentlessly raw and uncompromising chapter so far, powered by a renewed sense of artistic ambition and a plot twist no one expected.

Abandoned was written and recorded in a welcome period of relief in Archambault’s life, after he’d finally received a life-changing surgery that repaired severe hip damage he suffered in an injury. Archambault’s surgery, he says, allowed him to redouble his connection with his own writing, leaving him clear to truly inhabit what he calls his own Glass family–after the famous J.D. Salinger characters. The new album chronicles the story of a lapsed Catholic priest, whose battles in Europe during the war drag him first toward faith and then his own poisonous faithlessness.

Archambault states:

‘One of the threads running through this record is how people sometimes look for the answers to their problems in the darkest places.'”

1. Contrition
2. Unanswered
3. December 1943
4. Spared In Hell
5. Divination
