The Crinn Reveals New Album Release

Minnesota’s experimental tech-metal extremists from The Crinn have confirmed the official release date for their forthcoming full-length album, "Shadowbreather."

The follow-up to 2010's "Dreaming Saturn," "Shadowbreather" will finally be released to fans on April 28th, 2015 via Bandcamp. The Crinn also comments:

"Hello friends and fans! We couldn’t possibly be any happier to announce the release of our new album, Shadowbreather, which is confirmed and set to be released via Bandcamp at midnight on April 28th, 2015! Our sole purpose with this album was to create a kick-ass heavy Crinn record for you all to enjoy, and we definitely believe that Shadowbreather will fulfill that objective.

"This album was mostly self-recorded by Cole at his personal studio and also recorded, mixed, and mastered with our good friend Adam Tucker at Signature Tone Recordings, which makes this his 4th with us. Also, the plan for now is for this to be a digital only self release, although if we can raise enough money from album sales, we would really like to do a limited vinyl run for all you collectors and vinyl junkies! So please save the date and help us out by picking up the album on April 28th! A massive thanks to everyone who has supported us throughout the years, as this release will celebrate a decade of The Crinn! Cheers!"

The new album's track listing is as follows:

1. Wanderman
2. Endless
3. Silent Betrayer
4. Something Horrible
5. Burn The Widow
6. Maze of Walls
7. Lurking Light More...

The Crinn Releases New Song Online

Minnesota’s extreme metal experimentalists in The Crinn have returned with a face melting new track entitled "Silent Betrayer."

Little has been heard from the band since the release of debut full-length album, "Dreaming Saturn," via Nuclear Blast Records back in 2010. Aside from a few one-off live performances and few and far between social media updates, The Crinn been excessively quiet over the last few years.

All that changes with the release of "Silent Betrayer," which is taken from forthcoming album "Shadowbreather." Check it out below. Vocalist John Nelson had the following to say about the upcoming release:

"It has been a long 4 years since we released our first full length record, 'Dreaming Saturn,' and we are beyond pumped to showcase 'Silent Betrayer' from our upcoming album entitled Shadowbreather!

"The first thing people might notice, contrary to our last release, is that the new album was not formed as a concept. The direction we went with was to write individual songs that are somewhat shorter in length, more in line with our self-titled EP. Stylistically we have no rules. We write what comes to us. These songs are a true expression of our experimental nature with a bit of a focus on making our sound meaner and heavier. We really hope you enjoy 'Silent Betrayer,' and we will be releasing more news on the album soon!!!"

The "Shadowbreather" album was recorded at Signaturetone Recording with producer/engineer Adam Tucker. A release date has not yet been set. More...
