Sick Of It All Announce New Album 'Wake The Sleeping Dragon!' And Accompanying European Tour Dates

Friday, 17 August 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Sick Of It All have shared details of their next album, 'Wake The Sleeping Dragon!'

The New York hardcore veterans will release their 12th full length and the long awaited follow to 2014's 'The Last Act of Defiance' on November 2. The band worked with longtime collaborator Tue Madsen, who mixed and mastered the album, alongside Jerry Farley at Nova Studios on Staten Island, New York, The band said:

"This is the first time we've ever had a producer involved from start to finish, including the song-writing process.  His objective viewpoints helped settle a lot of little issues that could have easily become stumbling blocks, and the songs themselves ended up benefitting from them."

Singer Lou Koller and artist Ernie Parada came up with the idea of doing monster-movie styled art as the album's cover, which you can view above. Discussing it, drummer Armand Majidi said: 

“There is no reason to burn bridges in this business. Our history with Ernie Parada goes back to the late eighties, so working with him, there is a kinship that makes things easier to communicate.

"The dragon climbing the Empire State was a concept I always wanted to see brought to life, so the two ideas were destined to come together this way.”

While the band is currently playing summer festivals such as Summer Breeze, Reload or Summer Blast, they have already lined up more shows in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy in November, as well as co-headlining the Persistence Tour 2019 with Municipal Waste, which calls at London's O2 Forum on January 27.

Sick Of It All Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows
