Cloak unveils new track and new album details
Official press release:
Blackened heavy metal masters Cloak will be releasing their third full-length, 'Black Flame Eternal,' on May 26, 2023! To celebrate this release, the Atlanta quartet is now sharing the blistering first single, "Invictus," along with a music video! The scorching new video was co-directed by Nic Adams and Cloak frontman Scott Taysom and it can be found below.
Drummer Sean Bruneau shared the following about the single:
No composition written by the band has so perfectly captured our essence to date. The time spent in isolation allowed not only personal growth, but tremendous reflection on a lifetime of inspiration. The song came together aggressively once we started working on new material, and it was clear that we were approaching things differently this time around. Anger and empowerment were much more evident as opposed to the more melody driven material in the past albums. To us, 'Invictus' is a thesis of sorts. It's everything about who we were before this band and where we are headed together moving forward.
In addition, Cloak is now announcing a very special hometown album release performance, which will take place place at The Earl in Atlanta, GA on June 10!
The album artwork was created by Jordan Barlow and can be found below along with the tracklist. Pre-order the album here.
