Metallic hardcore heavyweights SWORN ENEMY return with a vengeance on their venomous new record, “Gamechanger”, due out next Friday, April 5. Produced by Robb Flynn (MACHINE HEAD) and mixed/mastered by Zack Ohren (SUFFOCATION, FALLUJAH, WARBRINGER), the hard-knuckled album expertly fuses metal, thrash and New York hardcore.
On the heels of the well-received first single “Prepare For Payback”, which earlier this month cracked the SiriusXM Liquid Metal Devil’s Dozen request countdown, the band is proud to unveil a second new track, “Coming Undone”. Available now for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and other digital platforms, the song is also being offered as an instant download with all digital pre-orders of “Gamechanger”.
The official music video for “Coming Undone” was directed by Bryan Bishop of Digital Thunderdome Productions and can be seen below.
“It’s been a while since SWORN ENEMY had a chance to film a video and we are pretty stoked the way ‘Coming Undone’ came out,” says singer Sal Lococco. “Hope you all dig it!”
SWORN ENEMY will spend much of 2019 touring in support of “Gamechanger”, beginning with a series of record-release shows along the East Coast. From there, the band will join forces with thrash legends SACRED REICH for a number of performances across America.
SWORN ENEMY was first signed by HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta, who released the group’s first two EPs on his Stillborn Recordings label in 2001 and 2002. He also produced the band’s full-length debut, “As Real As It Gets”, memorably praised by Lambgoat as “music that inspires you to want to beat the living piss out of the next unsuspecting person who walks in the room.” The album was released by Elektra Records in 2003, a year that saw the band deliver memorable performances on tour with Ozzfest.
In the 16 years since, SWORN ENEMY released four additional albums of punishing metallic hardcore and toured with a number of notable acts, including ANTHRAX, MASTODON, FEAR FACTORY, SEPULTURA, SUICIDE SILENCE, DYING FETUS, EARTH CRISIS, MADBALL, BIOHAZARD and HATEBREED.
