Metalcore monsters HASTE THE DAY are not only announcing the track listing and artwork, but are debuting the lead single from their towering new album, Attack of the Wolf King, out June 29 on Solid State Records.

“Travesty”, one of several stand-out tracks from the band’s forthcoming album, is available to purchase today on iTunes, and can also be streamed via the band’s MySpace page at: www.myspace.com/hastetheday

Wolf King proves to be the most dynamic, ferocious and art-minded album of the band’s career – an impressive feat for an act that is releasing its fifth full length and has compiled more than a quarter-million in album sales.

Recorded in Richmond with veteran producer Andreas Magnusson (THE BLACK DHALIA MURDER, OH SLEEPER, etc), Attack Of The Wolf King is the first outing for the current incarnation of HASTE THE DAY, whose new members brought equally fresh elements to the writing process, adding new fuel to the tried-and-true metalcore machine of singer Stephen Keech and bassist Michael Murphey.

While HASTE THE DAY are already among the metalcore elite, Wolf King sees the band reaching frenzied new heights for what, nine years into their career, could be their career-defining album.

“I think that Attack Of The Wolf King has taken the musical elements of HASTE THE DAY – the breakdowns, the melodies, and the mood – and turned it up ten notches,” says bassist Michael Murphy. “Fans of the old HTD and the new HTD will be both be in love with this album. It has the raw aggression of Burning Bridges, the catchy choruses of When Everything Falls, the energy of Pressure The Hinges, and the mood and feeling of Dreamer. Get ready for your new favorite HASTE THE DAY album!”

HASTE THE DAY have already announced a summer headlining tour in support of the album, from June 4 to July 2, and will follow that up with a Warped Tour run from July 20 to August 15th. Attack of the Wolf King track listing:

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
