“Psychic Warfare” is the band’s eleventh studio album and was released October 2nd, 2015 via their own label Weathermaker Music.
The album was produced by longtime producer Machine (Lamb Of God, Every Time I Die) and consists of 12 new tracks.
“The title ‘Psychic Warfare’ is taken from the track, X-Ray Visions", states singer Neil Fallon.
“It’s a tale about an unnamed protagonist who is forced to seek refuge in a flop house motel. He is hiding from several nefarious psychic forces, the worst of which is his own sleep deprived paranoia.”
The album cover for “Psychic Warfare” was designed by renowned photographer, Dan Winters.
