Whitechapel have released a new single, Black Bear.

The track precedes the release of the deathcore band's seventh full length, 'The Valley', which is set to arrive via Metal Blade Records on March 29. It was heavily influenced by vocalist Phil Bozeman's childhood spent in Hardin Valley, west of Knoxville, Tennessee.

Guitarist Alex Wade said:

"Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that. I feel our music is Phil's release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well."

Whitechapel are currentlly on the road finishing up their final US dates before Christmas. They'll head back to the UK next summer for a set at Download festival.

Whitechapel Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Fri December 14 2018 - MEMPHIS Tennessee - Growlers (USA)
Sat December 15 2018 - BIRMINGHAM AL Alabama - Zydeco (USA)
Sun December 16 2018 - KNOXVILLE Tennessee - Mill & Mine (USA)
