METAL CHURCH | BAND RELEASE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR ‘BY THE NUMBERS 17/11/2018 3 West coast metal veterans METAL CHURCH will release their 12th full length studio album Damned If You Do via Nuclear Blast Records on December 7th 2018 (Rat Pak Records/America & King Records/Japan). The latest release is the follow-up to their highly successful 2016 album XI, which saw the return of legendary front man Mike Howe. Damned If You Do is a cross between the band’s iconic Blessing In Disguise and The Human Factor. This new offering features ten fully-charged, classic-metal influenced songs showcasing the sound that has garnered the band a solid fan base for over 3 decades. Today, the band has launched the third single from their upcoming offering entitled ‘By The Numbers’. The video tells the story of a successful businessman who leads a double life as a lead singer in a metal band, something Mike Howe knows all too well.

Speaking of the new album Stet Howland comments, “From the minute we started tracking this new CD, I had the feeling that it was going to be something special. I knew that I was going to do my best to deliver a top drum performance, not only because of the high standard set by past METAL CHURCH drummers, but also because this is my first CD release after being sick.
