The ninth studio album from the U.K. metalcore band follows 2018's Holy Hell and is the first not to feature any contributions from founding guitarist Tom Searle, who passed away in 2016. Produced by drummer Dan Searle and new guitarist Josh Middleton, the album deals with climate change and features guest vocals from Parkway Drive's Winston McCall, Royal Blood's Mike Kerr, and Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil. ~ John D.
