Allegaeon To Release New Album “Apoptosis” In April, Premiere “Stellar Tidal Disruption” Video

Allegaeon have announced that their new album “Apoptosis” will be released on April 19 via Metal Blade Records. The effort, which was recorded with producer Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Denver, CO, will be the band’s first with bassist Brandon Michael. A video for the first single, “Stellar Tidal Disruption,” can be found below:

Guitarist Michael Stancel said the following about the album:

“On this record, I was more open to new ideas that we might not have used in past. Rather than deleting something because ‘it’s not Allegaeon-y enough’, I would take a step back and see if that idea fit the song and decide if it was worth keeping. With that mentality came some of my favorite songs, because I was less worried about if it fit into our old sound.”

Vocalist Riley McShane continued:

“Thematically, this record is all about contrast, and the music reflects that perfectly. The vocals are heavier than ever, but there are also more clean sections. The drums are faster than ever but also more dynamic, and the guitar playing is lower and slower than on most previous albums, but also provides long, melodic and beautiful sections throughout.”

Allegaeon Plan To Release New Album “Apoptosis” This Fall

During an interview on “The Metal Teddy Bear Experience” for 90.3 WMSC, Riley McShane revealed that Allegaeon’s new album will be called “Apoptosis.” The band are planning to release the effort in October and it is expected to feature 13 tracks.

McShane said the following about the album:

“It has themes. The title of the album, Apoptosis is the scientific term for when cells systematically die to have new cells come in and replace them. It’s often seen in just regular growth of tissue and growth of organic materials. So growth is really the theme of the album.

We feel that between ‘Proponent For Sentience and this record, Proponent For Sentience‘ was my first record with Allegaeon, ‘Apoptosis‘ is going to be Brandon Michael or Boo-Boo Money, our new bass player, that’s going to be his new, his first record. I think that as we continue to play and grow we just…grow, y’know?

We just keep getting better and better and the music really shows and I really wanted to tie that into the lyrical concept, still keeping things scientific, showing how death leads to new life in a lot of different ways, whether it’s through how forest fires do that kind of stuff or whether it’s for certain types of cellular adaptations and all that stuff.

But there’s is also a few songs on there that are a little more geared towards social constructs and growing as people and growing as artists and growing as a society. It’s a little bit deeper, I’d say, lyrical themes that have been on previous Allegaeon records but I think that’s just another way that we’re showing that we’re growing.”
