The sludge veterans in -(16)- are pleased to share"Landloper," the latest single from their forthcoming seventh full-length album "Lifespan Of A Moth."

Comments -(16)-'s Cris Jerue, "The song 'Landloper' is a tension-filled little ditty that deals with the inner craving to quit everything and live off the grid. Or take up residence on a blanket at the beach. Or subsist in the doorway of a bank. It doesn't fucking matter.

"Just get yourself anywhere else as soon as possible and become a free, unfettered hominid before time runs out. It's easily the most negative, positivistic song on the record."

The band released the full-length through Black Voodoo Records on October 5th, 2012.

In early 2014, the group released a limited split tape with LA's Pigeonwing. Trapped Within Burning Machinery has also recently added a third guitarist, James Inglett, to expand its sound. As of April of 2014, TWBM just finished second full-length, "The Filth Element," recorded with renowned producer/engineer John Haddad (Intronaut, Exhumed, Phobia), which will be released via Midnite Collective in the near future.

Day Of The Shred takes place at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California on Novemer 1st.

16 Streaming Entire Album Online

Three years after "Bridges to Burn" came out, 16 is back with its new album "Deep Cuts from Dark Clouds," which will be released on April 26th via Relapse Records. You can listen to an exclusive entire-album stream of all ten tracks over on Invisible Oranges. Vocalist Chris Jerue had the following to say about the album:

"It took us 20 years to write this record. We had to narrow things down and fine-tune this formula to the four people who wanted it the most. There have been like 14 people in this band. Now it seems like we have the right group to make good music…Since [2009's] 'Bridges To Burn' came out I had a real shitty three years. I can laugh at it now because I lived through it. That’s what this whole record is about. I have a whole different viewpoint. I could have died, and I guess I’ve been seeing things differently. When I listen to 'Bridges To Burn' now, I bore myself. But this record gets crazy without getting in your face with the negativity. I mean, it’s just as pissed but not as pissed at the same time."
