To give a glimmer of insight into the record, they have also today released new single “Aggressive Evolution”, alongside a hypnotic visualiser/lyric video. Watch the visualiser below.

Loathe’s new material sees some of their most esoteric and experimental moments yet; winding from brutally unrelenting heaviness, to weighty post-metal and ethereal post-rock. Fans who have caught Loathe performing recently have been treated to live previews of the tracks, as well as their punishing and ever-evolving live show.
