Hang The Bastard Announce Long Awaited New Album Sex In The Seventh Circle

The UK metal scene is in pretty rude health at the moment with bands of many metal sub-genres well represented in the home grown crop. Even then, some bands always rise above the pack with their music and quite frankly are just more interesting than others.
 
Hang The Bastard are one such band. Long promoted by ourselves at Scribes, the North-West London doom / sludge metal maestros are now gearing up for the release of their long awaited new album and have now revealed various bits of information about the album. 
 
The title of the new Hang The Bastard record is "Sex In The Seventh Circle". Instantly it makes you think "what the hell are they going to come up with next?" - In a good way. The artwork for the album has been done by none other than Dan Carter of BBC Radio One Rock Show fame. Sex In The Seventh Circle will be released on the 22nd of September here in the UK as well as on the European Mainland and then in the US a few weeks later on the 14th of October. The album will be released through the partnership between Siege Of Amida Records and Century Media Records. 
 
When asked for some thoughts about their new album, Sam, Tomas, Joe and Simon had this to say:
“We are very excited to put out our new record 'Sex In The Seventh Circle'. We have spent a lot of time writing what we believe is the album we as a band wanted to write. In a day and age where a band is scrutinized for trying to do something different, we have gone ahead and written an album that we wanted to write and we hope that people love it as much as we do. If they don’t, feel free listen to something else.”
