Metal quartet Darkness Divided released their sophomore self-titled album earlier this year, but today the band is proud to premiere the instrument playthrough for the single, “Back Breaker.” (You can watch the full music video for the track, released back in April, below.) The San Antonio band formed in 2010 and put out a five-track EP before signing with Victory Records to release Written in Blood in 2014. Since the release, founding guitarist Chris Mora and drummer departed and they added drummer Hayden Allen.

The band will be on the Fury Tour with Soilwork, Unearth, Battlecross and Wovenwar beginning next month.
