Byzantine To Release New Album “The Cicada Tree” In June

Byzantine have announced that their new album “The Cicada Tree” will officially be released on June 2. You can preorder the effort via PledgeMusic.


Chris “OJ” Ojeda said the following:

“The last two Byzantine albums were released DIY and both were coupled with successful crowd-funding campaigns. Now that we have finally landed a home with Metal Blade, we feel that it is vital that we continue our close relationship with our fan-base by offering up pre-orders for ‘The Cicada Tree‘ through PledgeMusic. Our experience with PledgeMusic has been nothing short of fantastic. We hope you enjoy ‘The Cicada Tree‘ as much as we enjoyed making it for you!”
