Unearth offered audiences their first preview of its next album this week with the record’s lead single and its companion video.

The band debuted its new single, ‘The Wretched; The Ruinous‘ Wednesday, along with the song’s companion video. The song is featured in the band’s as-yet untitled forthcoming album, which according to its video, will be released through Century Media Records.

The musical arrangement featured in Unearth’s new single is as intense as any of the band’s existing work. The machine-gun fast time keeping, the screaming vocals, thrash style guitars and rich low-end from the bass make it just as comparable to works from the likes of Testament as to As I Lay Dying. The overall heaviness and power in the arrangement will appeal not only to Unearth’s established audiences, but to metal fans across the board.

According to front man Trevor Phipps, the song’s lyrical theme delivers a message of ecological consciousness.

 “‘The Wretched; The Ruinous’ is a summation of our upcoming album as a whole musically and lyrically as it showcases the aggression, power, melody, energy and darkness that is full-throttle Unearth,” Phipps said. “Thematically this lead track puts the full blame on Mankind for the destruction of our planet, and the mass extinction of millions of species, as well as the eventual eradication of man due to our negligence with the climate crisis.”

Phipps said the video for the new single was recorded in Tokyo, Japan. According to the information include in the video, it was recorded live Monday.

Speaking of live shows, Unearth is scheduled to launch the “Hell On Earth 2023 Tour” Apr. 1 in Dortmund, Germany. The European/UK tour is scheduled to run through April 21 in Stockholm, Sweden. Misery Index, Year of the Knife, Turbid North, and Leech are scheduled to share time on the tour, too.
