The first of those new tracks ‘Omen’ was released Friday (April 8). You can check out the menacing, industrial track below.

Speaking about the self-titled record to NME, vocalist Matt Tuck said: “Creatively, the band is just on another level right now.”
“The writing process for the new record was relentless. Having that creative flow is something you crave when writing a song, let alone writing an album and we couldn’t stop. The quality of the songwriting is phenomenal on this record, they’re brave, they’re fierce, they’re confident. Everything just fell into place. It feels like the start of something very special,” he continued.
Talking about these additional songs, he added: “they’re different and unique. I want them to see the light of day because they’re heavy, they’re interesting and they push boundaries.”
