IMMINENCE announce new album 'The Black'

They've been teasing it for months and it's finally arrived: Imminence have announced their new album, The Black, the follow-up to 2021's Heaven in Hiding.

The Swedish troupe were recently dubbed one of five bands most likely to break out in 2024 by Revolver readers, and that prediction became even more sound after we heard their latest single "Continuum," a towering collision of post-metal, djent and metalcore. It utterly ruled. 

That song and the four Imminence released in 2023 — "Come Hell or High Water," "Desolation, "Heaven Shall Burn" and "Death by a Thousand Cuts" — will all be included in The Black's 12-song tracklist. 

"This is the closest we've ever been to a self-titled release, as this record speaks volumes about what Imminence is as a band," vocalist-violinist Eddie Berg said in a press release.

"Drawing influences across our discography mixed with our Scandinavian roots, you can hear elements from our entire history, yet fueled by an insatiable hunger. The album is probably the most conceptual we've ever created, and I've never been more proud of a body of work before.

"Continuing on the path as previous releases, the lyrical concepts revolve around mental health and depression. But there's no holding back this time. It's angrier, more desperate, and unhinged, soaking in fear and darkness.

"We've also allowed ourselves to let the album soar out into unexpected spaces, creating a musical journey with stark contrasts between light and darkness. It's an 'eat-your-heart-out', unapologetic testament to what Imminence has become. This is The Black."

The Black is out April 12th, just a couple weeks before Imminence embark on their U.S. headlining tour.
