The Last Ten Seconds of Life Release New Album 'Soulless Hymns'!

Purchase the album physically here or digitally here. You can also listen to the album in full here. This is taken from an email I received from Density Records,

"Pennsylvania heavies THE LAST TEN SECONDS OF LIFE release their third full-length, SOULLESS HYMNS, today on Density Records. At once their most accomplished and articulate record yet, Soulless Hymns has been hailed as “…one of the most psychologically immersive and aggressive offerings heavy music has seen in years. Picture-perfect guitar tones, relentless percussion and limitless vocal variety define The Last Ten Seconds of Life’s latest album as their magnum opus, an album so intense it guts and skins the listener, leaving them hopeless, boneless and soulless.” – New Transcendence (10/10).

Pairing pummeling music with intelligent, thought-provoking lyrics, the new album was produced by Carson Slovak and engineer Grant McFarland at Atrium Audio in Lancaster, PA last fall.

“This record really captures the sound we have live; it definitely has a crushing sound. It’s full, and it’s thick, and there’s so much low end,” says guitarist and key songwriter Wyatt McLaughlin. “The tones for the guitar and bass are finally how I want them to sound… Each album’s unique, and I’ll always love them all, but this one’s just out of control.”

The band—which also includes vocalist Storm Strope, drummer Christian Fisher and bassist Anthony Madara—formed in 2010 in northern central Pennsylvania, while the members were attending Mansfield University. Taking their name from a Smiths lyric, by 2011 they were already off touring, playing their own self-booked gigs, and then self-released their debut album, Know Your Exits, in October of that year. After touring extensively in support of that release the band dropped their next full-length, Invivo/[Exvivo], in 2013. Widely considered another step forward for the group, the record led to high-profile runs like the “Hate Across America Tour,” also featuring Thy Art Is Murder, I Declare War, Fit For An Autopsy and Kublai Khan, and more recently, the Periphery Tour, along with Born of Osiris.
The Last Ten Seconds of Life is currently on the Upon A Burning Body, Veil of Maya co-headline tour along with Volumes and Gideon presented by Revolver Magazine.  The trek began in Atlanta, Georgia at Masquerade on January 8th and stops in Philadelphia, New York, Detroit, San Francisco and other major cities before wrapping up on January 31st in Los Angeles, California at the legendary Roxy.  Current dates, along with a handful of upcoming headline shows, are below.
