Trevor Strnad reacts to the success of the album: “We are thrilled that Everblack is being so well received by the fans and we thank them truly from the heart for picking the album up. It’s been an amazing ride so far and the new album is our proudest moment yet. THANKS!”
The cover art for Everblack was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller with Weta Workshop (nickkellerart.com), whose recent projects include: The Hobbit, Avatar, Chronicles of Narnia, and more. Recording was completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside. Trevor Strnad’s horror-inspired lyrics persist on Everblack, beginning with In Hell is Where She Waits for Me, a reference to the murder from which the band took for their moniker.
Fans can stream Into the Everblack and order the album now at metalblade.com/bdm.
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER have unleashed their brand new music video, “Goat of Departure.” The video, directed by Ben Mayer, was filmed in the band’s hometown of Detroit, MI last month. In typical TBDM fashion, the video is over-the-top and even features the return of a classic TBDM character, and a real, live goat. Watch “Goat of Departure” now at metalblade.com/bdm.
Trevor Strnad adds: “It’s our pleasure to release our latest exercise in music video stupidity to you all at long last … We’d like to thank Guiness the Goat for penciling us in and all of the rabid TBDM fans for getting wild with us. Press the play button and embrace the glory of the goat!”
