On the Friday, July 13th, Burlington, Ontario rockers Kill No Albatross will issue their brand new four-track EP Speak True Evil. The album’s release is also perfectly matched with am Ontario/Quebec tour which includes a Toronto performance on July 17th as part of the final Vans Warped Tour! With the album available to pre-order via Bandcamp, we’re stoked to be offering the exclusive first listen – check it out below.

Speak True Evil follows the quintet’s May 2017 debut EP, Lost in Darkness and Distance, and was recorded with producer Wayne Cochrane (Alexisonfire, Protest the Hero) at Metalworks Studios, with mastering via Scott Lake (Cancer Bats, Dead and Divine). By blending “the accessibility of rock, the technicality of prog, and the energy of hardcore” that group feel they’ve created a dope sound of which they can be proud. And we’d tend to agree.

Speaking of the album, the guys simply said: “Here’s the labour of our collective love. We hope it melts all of your faces off.”
