Metalsucks.net has teamed up with Allegaeon to debut "Twelve" from the new album, "Formshifter" (reviewed here). The track, complete with an ambitious, classical, Greg Burgess-played acoustic outro, can be heard in its entirety now here.

In January 2012, Allegaeon traveled to Southern California and entered Lambesis Studios with Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, Impending Doom, Carnifex, Winds of Plague) to begin work on "Formshifter."

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."

"Formshifter" will be released on May 8th, 2012 via Metal Blade Records.
