Zeal & Ardor have unveiled Church Burns ahead of the release of their self-titled third album, out February 11.
When asked about the track, frontman Manuel Gagneux wryly quips, “There’s a church. Guess what? It burns. Church Burns.’”
The forthcoming, 14-track record is a masterclass in distilled rage. Recorded by Marc Obrist and Gagneux at Hutch Sounds, it was mixed and mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio. All songs were written and performed (except drums) by the multi-lingual Gagneux.
The Swiss extremists have been steadily revealing new tracks and official videos online in recent months, with fans treated to six new songs before the album release, while leaving plenty still to be discovered on release day. Everyone who pre-orders the album will receive these six songs immediately.
