For the second single off our upcoming LP, Agony & Wounds, we’ve picked “Breathe The Decay,”” the band writes. “It’s a ripper of a track that’ll make you feel like taking your last breath while having more hooks than a meat locker. Lyrically, it’s about a vagabond wreaking death everywhere they venture ala the Saint of Killers from Preacher; not specifically about him, but he was an inspiration when writing the song. We all breathe the decay in the end.

After traversing from dead horizon to dead horizon touring the United States with groups such as Morta Skuld, Molder, and Re-Buried, the Hoosier hellions, Obscene, deliver their third crime against humanity with Agony & Wounds. Here, bassist Roy Hayes, drummer Brandon Howe, guitarist Mike Morgan, and vocalist Kyle Shaw create eleven offenses, raining plague and pestilence upon all in its path. Agony & Wounds is their densest, lengthiest, most challenging, and most rewarding album to date, showcasing not only the band’s years of constant hard work in Obscene, but also their growth as musicians playing in other bands such as Mother Of Graves, Acheron, and Summon The Destroyer.

Picking up where …From Dead Horizon To Dead Horizon left off, Obscene’s Agony & Wounds showcases how the band delivers the goods in the way only they can. It also shows a broadening in the scope in their sound, packing in even more devastating riffs, eerie howls, whirlwind drumming, and a tightening of the band’s signature songwriting chops, fluidly showing a sense for subtlety that belies their more obviously ignorant influences and that stands out in a scene full of Johnny-come-latelies without half the experience needed to pull the same thing off. You will feel the Agony & Wounds, and you will come back for more! Keep it Obscene!

Featuring a glorious cover spread by legendary artist Brad Moore (Argus, Tomb Mold, Gatecreeper), Agony & Wounds was engineered and mixed by Noah Buchanan at Mercinary Studios and mastered by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studios. This is unquestionably a record fans of Asphyx, early-At The Gates, Brutality, and Morgoth will want to hear.

Agony & Wounds will be released on limited gatefold vinyl (300 on Violet and 200 on Gold), CD, and digital. A cassette is due through stalwart allies Desert Wastelands Productions. The day before its official street date, Obscene will celebrate the album with a release show, supporting Tomb Mold and Horrendous on the Indianapolis date of their North American tour on July 11th. The band is plotting more widespread tour dates for later this year; stand by for updates to post over the months ahead.
