Will Haven Announce New Album 'Muerte', Share New Track El Sol

Friday, 09 February 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Will Haven have announced their sixth album and debut for minus HEAD Records.

'Muerte' will arrive on March 23. Speaking about it, guitarist Jeff Irwin said:

“All said and done, we spent two years on this record. We had more time than ever to fine tune the music. We really benefited from that. We’re also more in tune with who we are. It’s the first time I walked away going, ‘There’s nothing else I could’ve done to make this better.'"

“It felt like a rebirth. It sounds like a whole new band. There’s a chemistry that only the four of us can achieve. Who knows what’s next, but this is everything we were always meant to be on a record.”

About El Sol, the first track to be shared from the new record, which was co-written with Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter, he continued:

“If WILL HAVEN and Deftones had a kid, that’s what it would sound like. I was in my first band with Stephen. This was really a family thing. While we were in the studio, he sent us an email with an eight-minute song of all riffs. I added the spacey elements. Our vocalist, Grady, is reciting this famous poem about being kind to your fellow man and taking care of each other. Lyrically, it fits the times.”
