The Skinny: Thine, the enigmatic UK dark rock/prog quintet, has revealed a new song, “To the Precipice,” from the band’s upcoming third studio album, The Dead City Blueprint, on Soundcloud – listen just above. The Dead City Blueprint is due out in North America on May 13 via Peaceville Records.

The Dead City Blueprint, the long overdue follow-up to the acclaimed 2002 album, In Therapy, was recorded at the hallowed and legendary Academy Studios (Paradise Lost, Anathema, My Dying Bride). The 10-track offering sees the band build upon the sublime hooks and dark existential themes from its previous two album releases.

Commented the band: “We’ve been toiling away for over a decade on shaping our latest monster. It has been such a long and grueling process with countless collapses and relapses and a traumatic voyage on numerous levels, but this opus is finally in the flesh so to speak. It is an encapsulation of all those glorious tragedies we all find ourselves overcoming along the way, and essentially for us, a welcome catalyst. Sometimes the best art comes only through being unexpectedly forced through the city’s darkest avenues, so hope you’ll find us there.”
