Oh yeah, there’s new Veil Of Maya material coming up this year! As the band posted on their Facebook page, the new record is called False Idol and will drop on October 20th, via Sumerian Records. Yep, your eyes aren’t lying; this release IS just around the corner! Unfortunately we can’t give you any more info other than the official artwork as well as the tracklist. A first song is going to be released next week, and there will be pre-orders.
This is the official artwork of False Idol:
And here we got the tracklist:
06 ECHO CHAMBER
07 POOL SPRAY
11 FOLLOW ME
We don’t even know which one of those 13 tracks is going to be the lead single! Looking at the track names, we can only expect something that doesn’t deal with female main characters (as the band did on Matriarch). Mark your calendars for September 13th, the day where we get the first new music since the band’s aforementioned 2015 release. Status right now: we don’t know anything. Will it be a heavy song? A catchy one? Do we get some more old school Veil Of Maya in the vein of ]ID[, or do we get a record that sees them morph further into a catchy prog metal outfit similar to Periphery? What do you think we can expect of their new record False Idol? Let’s discuss!
