The curtain dropped and the boys launched right into a hypercharged "1000hp". Frontman Sully Erna flawlessly carried each and every word, battering out the six-string groove at the same time. Tony Rombola delivered a show-stopping leadthe first of manyand Robbie Merrills could be heard back in Lawrence, MA. Shannon Larkin drove the assault from his drum perch, pounding out each beat with animalistic charm.

Its time to give some real focus to our touring activities outside of North America, and we think this new single will make our intentions clear.

This album is BAD ASS, and we really cant wait for you all to hear it. We recorded 15 songs total, and narrowed it down to the best 10 to make the final cut. You can expect a new single out very soon, with the album to follow in the months ahead. There is no release date on the album just yet, but stay tuned, and we will release that info to you as soon we can. We look forward to a kick ass year ahead, and are so grateful for each and every one of you, that have continued to support us throughout the years.
