Always a good Friday when there is new music, and today is no different: Outlands is a San Diego-based metalcore band, and HM is proud to premiere their new lyric video for “King of Dust.” The song comes from their upcoming album, Grave Mind, set to drop on June 23. We spoke with vocalist James DeBerg about the track:

“This song is about how broken people can’t see the potential to build happiness in so many parts of life.”

The band is currently on the Handmade Tour with The Ongoing Concept and Dayseeker. If you dig the track, you can preorder the LP over at Tragic Hero Records.
