Whitechapel To Release New Album “The Valley” In March, Premiere New Song “Brimstone”

Whitechapel have announced that their new album “The Valley” will be released on March 29. The effort focuses on Phil Bozeman’s rough childhood and it takes its name from the part of Hardin Valley near Knoxville, Tennessee where the frontman grew up. The first single “Brimstone” can be heard below:

Bozeman said the following about the album:

“It’s all about me as a child, and some of it is me looking back on that time from the perspective of now. Also, it’s my interpretation of my mom’s struggles and her different personalities. She had a journal that contained very disturbing and sometimes evil writings, and some of her quotes and a lot of that journal is in the lyrics.”

He also added:

“Sound-wise, it’s all over the place. There’s aggression, and then you’re hit with ominous and emotional guitar riffs. It’s mean, but then transfers to soft and inviting. It’s a whirlwind of emotions throughout.”

Guitarist Alex Wade also commented:

“Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that. I feel our music is Phil’s release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well.”

01. “When A Demon Defiles A Witch”
