You guys remember Fog of War, right? You know, the California thrashers that stole all our hearts and broke all our necks with their 2009 self-titled album and then went on the share the stage with bands like Heathen, Death Angel, Hirax and Exodus? OF COURSE you do. In fact, I bet a few of you are wondering why I would even ask such a question. The answer’s simple: although the band has stayed active, playing a few shows here and there in their native California, its been a while since Fog of War has released any new material. So what’s the deal?
A scroll through the band’s Facebook page reveals that Fog of War have been talking about releasing a new album for a very long time. I’m talking years.
So what is the the deal exactly? Why is this long awaited and much anticipated album taking so long? The truth is: I don’t know. I haven’t the slightest clue as to why Fog of War have been taking what seems like an eternity to release their new album and I’m not going to speculate as to why either. The fact is, I don’t really care what’s been taking the band so long. All I care about is the simple fact that Fog of War are in fact releasing a new album and they’re doing so in just a matter of days!
Just yesterday (May 28th) Fog of War announced via their official Facebook page that Here Lies Humanity – the band’s long awaited new album – will be released on June 6th of this year!
Although no other details regarding the album have been released as of time of writing, the band did promise that pre-order information for the album would be up soon so stay tuned for that. In the mean time, be sure to follow Fog of War on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-the-minute-information regarding Here Lies Humanity and all things Fog of War!
