King Conquer Posts New Lyric Video "A Day Late... And A Dollar Short"

King Conquer has released a lyric video for the track "A Day Late… and A Dollar Short," which will appear on the band's upcoming new album "1776." The lyric video can be seen below or over at the band's Facebook profile.

Speaking on the track, guitarist John Byrd commented: "The title of the track explains the theme of the song. The message is our economy isn't broken, it's fixed, and as the average citizen you're always held down by the elitists that are robbing our country blind, and collapsing this great country."

Produced by Charlie Wall (Betraying The Martyrs, Abiotic), "1776" is the follow up to 2010's "America's Most Haunted." Expanding on the meaning behind the title of the album, Byrd stated "We chose to title the album '1776' for a few reasons. First, all of our members believe we need to restore our republic that's been destroyed." Adding, "Second, I believe our band had a fresh new start with this record, as did the colonies in that year. Our writing process has improved on every aspect and we're attacking this industry with full force. We're sick of the diluted metal scene and how it's over saturated with gimmicks and choreographed stage moves. People need something authentic and real, we hope to provide them with that."

The "1776" album is set to hit stores and digital retailers this spring through Mediaskare Records. King Conquer will headlining the "Eat Your Heart Out Tour," which begins on February 1st, with support from The Last Ten Seconds of Life, Adaliah, and Sworn In.

This is definitely better than Oceano's release, but it's not what I expected from them. It's not as heavy as I thought it would have been. Also, what's up with the random government rant?
