French grindcore activists BLOCKHEADS revealed the details of their forthcoming album, the first in over six years entitled, This World is Dead.
This World is Dead will see a CD/LP/Digital release on January 22 (North America), Jan 21 (UK/World), and Jan 18 (Germany/Benelux/Finland).
The band commented on the upcoming album:
“We think that our new tracks mirror the same state of mind which still exists since Blockheads’ beginning and we can’t wait for its release and to play on stage again.”
Formed 20 years ago, BLOCKHEADS (Xav – vocals, Fred – guitar/vocals, Nico – drums/vocals & Eric – bass/vocals) have unleashed four full-lengths in addition to numerous splits, comps and DVDs. The band has toured throughout Europe with such genre heavyweights as Napalm Death, Nasum, Carcass and Brutal Truth.
