Lybica Premiere New Song “Oktavist”

Lybica (Killswitch Engage, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Oktavist.” This track is from the band’s new self-titled album, which will be released on September 16. Justin Foley said the following about the song:

“Different versions of ‘Oktavist‘ were kicking around in my ‘ideas’ folder seemingly forever, and it was exciting to hash it out with the guys and end up with the most metal song on the record, and our heaviest breakdown. I love headbanging through the end of it at shows. Also, I can’t wait for you all to hear the full album when it comes out next month – exciting times!”

Lybica Premiere “Manifest” Music Video

Lybica (Killswitch Engage, Gravel Kings, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Manifest.” This track is from the band’s new self-titled album, which will be released on September 16.

Justin Foley commented:

“I’m thrilled to announce that our debut record will be out September 16 on freaking Metal Blade. It’s fitting to share ‘Manifest‘ today, as well, since it was the first song Doug [French], Joey [Johnson], and I played together a few years back. Now that Chris [Lane] has completed the band, it’s time for some shows.

Fellow Floridians can see us at Respectable Street in West Palm on August 5, and also at Fest (!!) in Gainesville, with about 200 of your favorite bands. I also suckered the KsE guys into letting us play with them in Albany on September 22, just a week after Lybica‘s record comes out. We can’t wait to see where this band takes us, and we’re excited to get things started!”

Lybica (Killswitch Engage, Etc.) Premiere “Palatial” Music Video

Lybica (Killswitch Engage, Gravel Kings, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Palatial.” Justin Foley commented:

“These tunes were two early ones that came together when we first started jamming, so it’s fitting that they’re the first songs we’re sharing with everyone. I think they sum up what we’re all about, blending loud with soft, heavy with hooks.”

Lybica (Killswitch Engage, Gravel Kings) Premiere “Ferment” Video

Killswitch Engage‘s Justin Foley and Gravel Kings’ Doug French and Joey Johnson have launched a new band called Lybica. The group have already signed with Metal Blade Records and a video for their first single, “Ferment,” can be found below. Foley said the following about the project:

“I’d written a bunch of stuff that didn’t quite fit into traditional song structures. And I’ve always been drawn to bands where the instruments provide hooks, rather than relying on a lyric. It seemed like a good time to start something new and see where it could go.”
