WHITECHAPEL Premiere Lyric Video For Title Track “Our Endless War” on Artist Direct

- April 14th, 2014 –

New Album Available April 29th on Metal Blade Records

The anticipation continues to build as the release date of WHITECHAPEL’s new album Our Endless War draws nearer. April 29th will see the release of the band’s fifth full-length record and fourth for Metal Blade Records. Our Endless War is a ruthlessly honed album that refuses to compromise on brutality; it is also by far WHITECHAPEL’s most streamlined, atmospheric, and emotionally powerful release, pushing every aspect of their sound to the next level.

Today WHITECHAPEL are unleashing another crushing track from the new album. Artist Direct is hosting an exclusive stream of the lyric video for the album’s title track “Our Endless War”. It can be viewed HERE.

Vocalist Phil Bozeman commented on what inspired him to write the song:

“The focus behind the song “Our Endless War” is not what a lot of people believe it to be. A lot of people will think it’s just a stab at our government but it’s more than that. The United States as a whole has been in this sort of downward spiral for quite some time now. It has to do with just us as a nation; our citizens, government, culture, etc. I truly feel like we are becoming those “stupid Americans” that we are stereotyped as because of things like reality TV, gluttony, our healthcare system, school shootings and so many other things. I’ve been around the world and seen how different countries treat each other. It seems as though they are truly “united” as one whereas it seems like we hate each other. I love my country and my freedom and I will always be a patriotic citizen of the United States but I’m scared of what the future holds for our generations to come. It seems as though we are fighting an endless war and we will never find that victory.”

During the recording of Our Endless War the band shot a series of behind the scenes and in-studio videos documenting the process. The first episode in the series focuses on the pre-production and the band’s writing process for the new album. It can be viewed HERE. The second video showcases each member sharing their part in tracking the riffs that made up the album and can be viewed HERE.

Our Endless War is available in exclusive pre-order bundle packages at http://www.metalblade.com/whitechapel. The first two singles “The Saw is the Law” and “Mono” can be streamed at http://www.metalblade.com/whitechapel as well.

WHITECHAPEL will hit the road this Friday April 16th as part of a string of shows leading up to the release of Our Endless War. The shows run through April 27th in Birmingham, AL with support coming from Carnifex, Within the Ruins, and Cruelhand. This run also includes an appearance at this year’s New England Metal & Hardcore Festival.

Following those shows, WHITECHAPEL will take part in a co-headline tour DevilDriver. Support on the tour will come from Revocation, Carnifex, Rivers of Nihil and Fit For an Autopsy. The tour runs from May 17th in Denver, CO through June 23rd in Austin, TX. A complete list of dates can be found below.

WHITECHAPEL have created an online contest with their new single “Mono”. Vocalist Phil Bozeman has a video message for fans that are interested and would like to enter the contest, which can be viewed HERE. The object of the contest is that fans will film themselves doing a vocal cover of the new song “Mono” and then upload their videos to YouTube. The contest ends April 21st and the winner will be announced on April 22nd and will receive a grand prize package that consists of: 1 Deluxe CD Bundle of Our Endless War, a 30 minute vocal coaching lesson with Phil Bozeman via Skype and their video will be featured on Phil’s YouTube Channel.
