New Jersey six-piece FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have revealed the title to their upcoming fifth studio album, The Sea of Tragic Beasts, which will be released on October 25 via Nuclear Blast Records worldwide and Human Warfare (AUS). In addition, the band has released an explosive new song off the record, “Mirrors”.
Producer, guitarist, principal songwriter, and co-founder Will Putney comments, “You carry things with you, for better or worse. ‘Mirrors’ illustrates the darker side of this idea. It’s also a testament to how the decisions you make can have a resonating effect on the ones around you. Clearly, this song was born out of a personal struggle, but in the end, it’s a reflection on the greater human condition of love and dependency; not being able to release yourself from the darkness around you. Our new record dives head-on into some difficult topics. ‘Mirrors’ is the the tip of the iceberg.”
The Sea of Tragic Beasts was once again produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by the producer/guitarist Putney at Graphic Nature Audio in New Jersey. The artwork for the album was created by Adam Burke.
The Sea of Tragic Beasts is available for pre-order here and comes in the following formats: CD Jewel; Vinyl; Clear with White splatter vinyl (limited to 1000); Light Blue/Black swirl vinyl (limited to 750); and Blue Merge splatter vinyl (limited to 500)
