Obituary announce new record, Dying of Everything, out on January 13th via Relapse Records
Today is a great day as the Legendary Florida Death Metal icons Obituary announce a vicious and highly anticipated new record. Entitled Dying of Everything and featuring brilliant artwork by the late Mariusz Lewandowski, this new offering destroys the time-honored tradition instated by their early classics Slowly We Rot and Cause of Death, while maintaining the killer studio sound that the band has been perfecting in their own studio since 2007’s monstrous Xecutioner’s Return. Below this article you can watch the Odd Life Studios-directed video for the first single, “The Wrong Time”, about which Obituary comment: “We couldn’t be more excited to FINALLY get this new album out and into the hands of the fans! We chose “The Wrong Time” for the first single as it is a true depiction of the sound, style and feel we went for in the studio and is a great taste of what you can expect from Dying of Everything.”
Like just about every album in Obituary’s vast catalog, Dying Of Everything is instantly memorable, a skill that Obituary have only improved upon over the years. It’s unusual for a band that’s been around since the 80s to be doing some of their best work in the 2020s, but that’s exactly what Obituary have accomplished through their DIY attitude and relentless touring on a worldwide level. “I think it comes down to passion”, vocalist John Tardy offers. “I say this all the time, but if something’s not fun, I’m not gonna do it. And we’re having more fun than ever.”
Dying of Everything will be released on January 13th via Relapse Records. Physical and digital pre-orders are now available here.
