Hardcore bangers Kublai Khan has announced a new album, New Strength. Alongside the announcement, the Dallas-based band also released the first music video and single for the album, a black-and-white clip for “Smoke and Mirrors.” New Strength is scheduled to be released Nov. 27 by Artery Recordings.

This release will feature guest vocals from Bury Your Dead singer Mat Bruso and The Acacia Strain vocalist Vincent Bennett. The band spoke about the new album via press release:

“Same band, strengthened sound. Ten new songs, paying homage to our roots while displaying a new story of honest rage.”

The album is the band’s third, following up 2014’s Balancing Survival and Happiness and a free-for-download release in 2010, Youth War.

After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.
