Car Bomb have announced that their fourth full-length has been titled Mordial. Guitarist Greg Kubacki said of the album:
“This sounds extremely cliche, but Mordial to me is a record that feels the most like ‘us’. I mean we love heavy shit, but that’s not what we listen to on the regular. This album explores a lot of other tones, timbers and vibes that we normally listen to, and I’m really excited that we get to showcase that on this record.
Wrapping up the sessions of Mordial is kinda bitter sweet. I started writing this album after watching Gojira for a month straight on the Magma Tour two and a half years ago, and whatever voodoo they had going on during that run had a tremendous effect on me. I really can’t put my finger on what we’ve been going for on this one (because it’s weird AF), but I know that tour was the seed. And it’s sad that it’s all ending because I’ve never felt so alive working on a record.”
The record announcement comes with the premiere of a music video for their new single, “Scattered Sprites”.
Mordial will see its release on September 27th in Europe and the UK through Holy Roar Records, and independently in all other territories. It was written and produced by Kubacki and mixed by Adam “Nolly” Getgood. Pre-orders are available via the group’s Bandcamp and Holy Roar webstore.
Car Bomb released a video last month for another new song, titled “Dissect Yourself”. That track also appears on the album.
Next week, the group will be touring Europe and the UK with Animals As Leaders. The pair will hit a number of festivals, as well as clubs. Dates can be found below.
