After revealing the completion of their new album, Jinjer have finally officially announced their fourth studio effort, Wallflowers, will be released on August 27th via Napalm Records. Bassist Eugene Abdukhanov comments on the follow-up to 2019’s Macro:  


“Growing creatively has always been a major goal for us. The day JINJER stops reaching for new musical horizons- will be our last day as a band. We could have churned out what our peers expected us to do or produce Pisces clones without end but we’ve never done that and we never will. Instead, we wrote an album whose level of emotions range from the fiercest aggression we’ve ever had, to the most intricate melodies and melancholic vibes you could ever get from our music. We decided to rip apart all possible stylistic boundaries without regard to financial success or competing with our previous albums. Wallflowers is a different kind of album musically and visually. It’s about our identity as a band, as individuals and a clear statement that we are different from most artists… and that it is OK to do your own thing.”


To celebrate the album announcement, which will arrive just in time for their upcoming tour with Suicide Silence, these Ukrainian metal giants have unveiled a video for the first single “Vortex.”


The band comments:

“”Vortex” is the first. The first song we recorded and the first single we played live (at Hellfest From Home 2021). This is a perfectly balanced song in our opinion. A story told through the music and it deserved a video to perfectly match it… The video is a journey, giving the single another layer, another message, as Tatiana sings about the burden of heavy thoughts and how devastating it can be, the video mirrors what the world has sadly become for many of us…”
