Psycroptic Reveal New Album Artwork

Shown above is the cover art for Psycroptic’s fifth studio album, ‘The Inherited Repression.’ The record will be available on February 7 in North America and February 10 in Europe via Nuclear Blast Records.

“‘The Inherited Repression’ is far and away my favorite Psycroptic album thus far — all of us in the band think this,” remarked guitarist Joe Haley in a statement. “It’s the age-old clich√© from bands when they talk about their current album as being the best of their career, blah, blah, but I have to say it because it’s true. We wouldn’t think there is a point of going on if we couldn’t outdo each album prior. We are certainly not playing music for anything else than the love of creating it and performing it.”

Haley added, “‘The Inherited Repression’ is quite different from anything we have done in terms of song writing and structure, and we spent a lot longer writing and demoing the songs before we recorded it, which you can tell. It’s a very dynamic album — the fast elements faster, the slow elements slower, and a lot of light and dark binding it together. It’s a very catchy album as well — you can tap your foot, bang your head or anything else you want. Basically it has a lot of groove on it from start to finish.”
