The Skinny: Incite, the Arizona-based metal outfit led by Richie Cavalera, are set to release their new album, Oppression on 22nd April and to tie in with their current UK dates they’re debuting new song, “Stagnant.”

Oppression was recorded at the Omen Room Studios, Garden Grove, CA with producer Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence, Every Time I Die). Richie Cavalera states, “The shredding and ferocity on this record will surely fire up all metal heads. It’s by far, darker and faster than anything we’ve released before. The man chosen to take this ride through hell and back with us is no other than producer Steve Evetts.”

Having just wrapped up a UK run supporting Cancer Bats, Incite roll straight into a full European tour with Soulfly. UK dates run as follows:

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
