As Extremist lies on the horizon, Demon Hunter has the marketing machine chugging. Solid State offered a preview of the band’s new song via call number (832-742-4868, Houston represent!) yesterday, and now have what seems to be any combination of pre-order bundles to satisfy your Demon Hunter urges.

The band also announced a boxed set recently, and it includes a 7″ bonus vinyl with two yet-to-be-named tracks, two regular bonus tracks (“Waste Me” and “Helpless Hope”), embossed cover with 64-page book filled with everything Extremist related: lyrics, behind-the-scenes commentary, photos, etc. It also comes with a DVD documenting the album sessions.

Extremist will drop March 18 from Solid State.
