ALLEGAEON Debuting Track “Twelve” From New Album
Allegaeon is debuting “Twelve”, from the new album, Formshifter. The track, complete with an ambitious, classical, Greg Burgess-played, acoustic outro, can be heard in its entirety now here.
Guitarist Greg Burgess had this to say about the new album, “With Formshifter, I think we kept the sound a lot of our fans love about us, but achieved them through certain compositional challenges. Be it style, or genre mixing, I believe that we seamlessly applied certain elements we didn’t have on Fragments, and it added a color and dimension we didn’t have before”. Guitarist Ryan Glisan adds, “This album to me indicates the future of the band but nods to our past as well. It, to me, is more of where I have envisioned our band being since I started the band a couple years back, it relies on similar songwriting structures and musicality but adds more groove and memorable riffing than our previous efforts.”
Formshifter t-shirt/CD pre-order bundles, a stream and download of Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst, as well as the behind-the-scenes studio video can both be seen now at metalblade.com/allegaeon.
Formshifter will be released on May 8, 2012 via Metal Blade Records.
