EIGHTEEN VISIONS Release New Track ' THE DISEASE, THE DECLINE AND WASTED TIME'
Taken From Long-Awaited New Album XVIII, Out 2nd June Via Rise Records



Eighteen Visions, the seminal metal band that recently announced they had reformed and signed with Rise Records have unleashed a brand new track ' The Disease, The Decline and Wasted Time'taken from their long-awaited new album, XVIII out 2nd June.

"The Disease, The Decline & Wasted time was the first song we wrote for "XVIII." It's heavy and aggressive nature definitely help set the tone for the rest of the album.” says singer James Hart.


Check out the new song below!






XVIII, the reunited and reenergised band’s first new album in over a decade, is both mission statement and battle cry. It’s a blistering, dense, and diverse album. Recharged and newly partnered with Rise Records, 18V sound liberated from the expectations of the outside world and driven only by their own personal and artistic directive. This is the album promised by the raw alchemy of every other Eighteen Visions record. The unrelenting force and unashamed ambition that fueled every stylistic incarnation of this always evolving and never boring band: it’s finally fully realized in the sound of XVIII. The album was made at home in Orange County, with U.K. transplant and multi-instrumentalist producer Mick Kenney at the helm. His close relationship with the guys in the band (vocalist James Hart, guitarist Keith Barney and drummer Trevor Friedrich) lent itself to the most fully realized recording in their discography, emphasizing every strength of 18V’s unique arsenal. Among the album’s many highlights is “Live Again,” a moving tribute to bassist Mick Morris, who passed in 2013, “Picture Perfect” a super heavy, dirgy assault on fakery and wolves in sheep’s clothing, dripping with menacing melody and “Fake Leather Jacket,” a molotov cocktail tossed at the music industry, threatening and staunchly confident.






The full track listening for XVIII is:

1.Crucified
2.The Disease, The Decline, and Wasted Time
3.Underneath My Gun
4. Live Again
5.Laid To Waste in the Shit of Man
6.Oath
7. Spit
8. Picture Perfect
9.Fake Leather Jacket
10. For This I Sacrifice



Eighteen Visions (sometimes stylised as “18 Visions” and regularly name checked by diehard supporters around the world as simply “18V”) were declared part of “The Future of Metal” byRevolver Magazine during their meteoric rise from proto-deathcore indie band, nurtured by the DIY scene, to major label “next big thing” in active rock. A lengthy section of Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal is dedicated to the passion fuelled Orange County heroes. Their fusion of hardcore punk energy and death metal fury; ‘80s Sunset Strip attitude and ‘70s sexualised charisma; and the dark romanticism of grungy ‘90s alt-rock, became something definitively all of their own. They’ve toured with Lamb Of God, Killswitch Engage, Bullet For My Valentine, Coheed And Cambria, HIM, and fellow OC denizens, Avenged Sevenfold. Their live show is both slick and dangerous, impassioned and full of concentration. 18V is incongruously yet brilliantly suited for both the heyday of arena rock and gatherings in sweaty basements.

Eighteen Visions will perform fan favourites and new songs—on 2nd June, when they take the stage for the first time in ten years for a record release show at The Observatory in Orange County. Click HERE for tickets.

No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
