Demon Hunter have released seven albums since their formation in 2002, and they’re a band that keeps getting better with age. Their last album, Extremist, was their highest charting album, landing in Billboard‘s top 20, and it was also one of their heaviest. They’ve always been able to combine heaviness with an active rock sensibility, and today they announced that their eighth album, Outlive, will be out in Spring of 2017. Here’s what the band says about their new album, which you can preorder now:
The time has come. After the longest wait between Demon Hunter records ever, we are proud to announce our brand new studio album, “Outlive.” The last 3 years have been an absolute whirlwind. We’ve welcomed 5 (!) children into the Demon Hunter family, endured heartbreaking trials, and experienced joy beyond comprehension. “Outlive” is a culmination of these peaks and valleys. It is a journey through adversity, survival, and overcoming the odds. They say the best stories are told by those who have lived a life worth commenting on, and we believe that our stories will resonate with each of you in some way.
The relationship we share with you has always been uniquely special. You’ve come to expect a high level of quality from us and we intend to honor that promise. We’ve been working for months assembling every piece of the album and its presentation with dedicated attention to detail. The new album is scheduled for a spring 2017 release and we are going to make the journey from here to there as thrilling as possible. We are simply beyond excited to share every aspect of Demon Hunter’s eighth chapter, “Outlive,” with all of you. Prepare yourselves and join us.
They’ve launched a Pledgemusic campaign, and it’s already raised 26& of its goal in one day, so it’s safe to say that not only will Demon Hunter reach their goal, but there’s also a high demand for the band.
