Texas metallers Spirit Adrift continue to preview their upcoming album 20 Centuries Gone and today have unveiled the new single “Mass Formation Psychosis.” The new recording consists of eight songs; two new originals and six covers. It drops on August 19th via Century Media Records, was mixed by Zeuss (Overkill, Crowbar, Municipal Waste) and includes cover art by Brian Mercer (Lamb of God, High on Fire, Mastodon). Check the band on tour as they support Crowbar.

Spirit Adrift mastermind Nate Garrett comments:

“I always thought it would be a cool experience to record some songs by bands that are foundational to the DNA of Spirit Adrift. These choices are obvious and on the nose to me, but maybe unexpected to the fans. That made the whole thing a lot of fun. A band like Lynyrd Skynyrd might not be the first thing you think of when considering Spirit Adrift’s influences, so the task for me became figuring out how to honor these great songs, but in the distinct Spirit Adrift style. To make the whole thing even more special, I channeled these influences and wrote a couple of new songs to kick things off.”
