New Orleans’ Eyehategod released their last record 14 years ago, in 2000. They are now planning to release their latest record in May.
The group has been through a variety of obstacles since the release of their last album, including the death of drummer Joey LaCaze in August 2013. Hurricane Katrina and the incarcerations of band members also contributed to the lack of new music from Eyehategod over the years.
However, Brooklyn Vegan reported that lead vocalist Mike IX Williams posted the following on Facebook:
EYEHATEGOD master tapes are in our hands RIGHT NOW!!! Artwork getting close to be being done as well..!!! Gonna be KKKKIIIILLERRR.. Got some surprises up our sleeve too…! SOUNDS and LOOKS INSANE!!!
In the time between 2000’s Confederacy of Ruined Lives and now, Williams has been working with his other band, Corrections House, to release some new tunes. They put out a debut album, Last City Zero, in October 2013. In December, Corrections House released the music video for their track “Bullets and Graves.”
According to Blabbermouth, the album will feature the final recordings of LaCaze, as well as work by new drummer Aaron Hill. Check out the new track “Agitation! Propaganda!”
