The Skinny: Today, Swiss metal/hardcore institution Kruger premiere the new track “Bottoms Up” via YouTube. “A bit difficult to classify,” says Lambgoat, but “we think the word ‘relentless’ suffices,” the track hails from Kruger’s highly anticipated new album, Adam and Steve, set for North American release on January 20th, 2015 via Listenable Records.

Adam and Steve follows Kruger’s widely hailed For Death, Glory and the End of the World, from 2010, and is the band’s fifth album to date in a career which spans 13 years of heavy duty and thousands of miles across Europe. In 2013, Kruger release the two-song 10″ 333 before hitting the road Europe as support for their godfathers Gojira, promising a full-length album soonish. That pledge will be fulfilled January 20th, 2015 with Adam and Steve, once again produced by the band and mixed by Cult of Luna’s Magnus Lindberg: eight tracks in 45 minutes which honor Kruger’s inclination for abrasive Breach-esque melodic bursts, double-kick metallic charges, punkish exuberance, and abstruse lyrical concepts.
