Crossfaith Announce New Album 'EX_MACHINA'

Thursday, 14 June 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Crossfaith have announced their new album, 'EX_MACHINA', set for release on August 3 via UNFD.

The Japanese metallers' fifth album and the follow up to 2015’s 'XENO' is a concept album set in an alternative near future in which the ruling class, known as Angels, maintain their world through artificial intelligence and other technology, which dehumanises people and effectively turns them into drones. Discussing the album, frontman Kenta 'Ken' Koie said: 

"After we released last album 'XENO', we were thinking about what the next theme for us is. Then we decided to put theme “Awake the individuality”. Because we've always trying to make new things and that's the big part of band's attitudes.

"Technology has been advancing from when I was kid, and it definitely helps the world but at the same time I feel like technology take out important process to think about individuality in exchange for convenience.

"This album is a grave warning for our future, I hope you guys listen to this and think about what the meaning of this album is for you and feel how you feel through this album and start something for your future."

The album will also feature guest contributions from Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds as well industrial hip hop duo Ho99o9. Last week, Crossfaith shared their new single The Perfect Nightmare. View the record's cover art and tracklist below.
