Today Australian rock band Karnivool announces the release of third full-length album, "Asymmetry," via Density Records. The exact U.S. release date along with pre-order information will be announced shortly.

"Asymmetry" is the band’s first new release in over four years (following sophomore release, "Sound Awake") and the 14 tracks were recorded and mixed by producer Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, Mastodon) in Byron Bay, New South Wales.

“I think each time Karnivool walk into another record we all want to explore new ground,” explains vocalist Ian Kenny. “We want to open the door to our musical basement, switch the light off and tumble down the stairs into god knows what. Each time we switch the light on again we are a different band.”

“We wanted this record to be a natural evolution from Sound Awake,” adds guitarist Drew Goddard. “It needed to be more honest and raw, sound wise and song wise, exploring unchartered territory for the band while holding true to the things that make Karnivool... Karnivool.”

“As a theme or title, it’s very much a broad brushstroke,” says Goddard of the album’s moniker. “It’s one that we feel encompasses where we are at in a musical sense at this point in time. We are very much into big ideas that are open to interpretation, ideas that can mean different things to different members of the band as well as the listener.”

“We Are,” the first single and video from "Asymmetry," premieres today at the band's website here or can be seen below. The video was directed by longtime Karnivool collaborator Christopher Frey.
