Bury Tomorrow have announced they will release their sixth album Cannibal on April 3rd via Music For Nations/Sony Music. To accompany the announcement the band released a video for the title track, watch + listen here.
Bury Tomorrow reunited with SikTh guitarist and Black Flame producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns), while mixing and mastering was completed by Adam “Nolly” Getgood and Ermin Hamidovic, the dream team behind Architects’ Holy Hell. The result is Bury Tomorrow’s most technical, anthemic album yet. Cannibal is stacked with glorious vocal hooks, razor-sharp riffs and sublime melodies that will solidify their seat at UK metal’s top table.
“This album is for me as well as for the fans,” says vocalist, Dani Winter Bates. “It was a cathartic process to address some of the darkest moments I’ve had in my life. For some people, it’ll be a hard listen. But I thought I have to do this. If I’m going to go in, I’m going to go in. I’m not doing something half-arsed. There is nothing lyrically I would change on this entire album. The term ‘cannibal’ refers to being eaten away by your own thoughts but also eaten away by other humans,” he explains. “We’re not kind to ourselves, let alone kind to each other.”
While the process was far from easy and pushed the band musically and emotionally to their limit, there’s no doubt that this is their best and bravest album to date. Now 14 years into their career, Cannibal will be the album that takes Bury Tomorrow to even greater heights.
