Allegaeon entered Lambesis Studios with Daniel Castleman in January to begin work on the new album "Formshifter." The band has now posted a new song from the album online, titled "Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst," which can be heard in the player below.

Pre-orders and behind-the-scenes studio video can both be seen now at this location. "Formshifter" will be released on May 4th/7th, 2012 via Metal Blade Records in Europe.

Guitarist Greg Burgess had this to say about the new album, "With 'Formshifter,' I think we kept the sound a lot of our fans love about us, but achieved them through certain compositional challenges. Be it style, or genre mixing, I believe that we seamlessly applied certain elements we didn't have on Fragments, and it added a color and dimension we didn't have before."

Guitarist Ryan Glisan adds, "This album to me indicates the future of the band but nods to our past as well. It, to me, is more of where I have envisioned our band being since I started the band a couple years back, it relies on similar songwriting structures and musicality but adds more groove and memorable riffing than our previous efforts."

Highly enjoyed that. I'll be looking forward to listening to the rest of this album. I remember this band before they were signed to Metal Blade. They were great then and they're still great now.
