have announced a new album “Transmission.Alpha.Delta,” which will be out on March 24th via Fat Wreck Chords. It’s been 5 years since their last album so I’m sure fans will be exciting for this news.
The undisputed champion of metal-laced punk rock STRUNG OUT has risen with a new album titled TRANSMISSION.ALPHA.DELTA. “It has been over five years since our last album and we feel this is the most complete and intense music we have ever created,” explains guitarist Jake Kiley. Strung Out will be broadcasting 12 tracks saturated with blistering metallic riffs, clobbering rhythms, and intricate melodies on March 24, 2015 via Fat Wreck Chords.
In an effort to record their strongest album to date, Strung Out teamed up with producer Kyle Black (Comeback Kid, Heart To Heart) and labored for nearly a year in and out of the studio. The result of that effort is incredible. Every song on the album blends a massive charge of sound with numerous intricate elements that jump right off of the page. From the explosive “The Animal and the Machine” to the anthemic flamenco-infused “Spanish Days” to the nuclear blast of “Tesla” to the ballsy solo laden “Black Maps” to the electrifying melody of “Nowheresville”, Transmission.Alpha.Delta tightropes between the catchy essence and energy of Strung Out’s early work and the darker, even more aggressive tenor of their later releases.
Easily one of the most influential punk bands still in existence today, Strung Out has managed to form the quintessential blend of melodic punk rock, progressive rock, and heavy metal in their twenty-five years of existence. Strung Out’s influence can be heard on releases from a number of artists, such as Rise Against, AFI, Thrice, and Avenged Sevenfold, to name a few. Today, Strung Out remains a worldwide powerhouse in the underground music scene with nearly a million albums sold collectively.
