Last week, the polarizing experimental metalcore group iwrestledabearonce revealed new details surrounding their upcoming third record Late For Nothing, including the tracklist, release date, and confirmed a guest solo featuring guitarist Steve Vai. The band promised a new single and quickly delivered with the album’s opening track, ‘Thunder Chunky.’
The new track premiered at Artist Direct, and it’s a pretty cool song. This is the first time we’re hearing new material from the band with singer Courtney LaPlante, and with all due respect to her, had I not known they had a lineup change, I wouldn’t have immediately noticed. I’m certainly digging the song’s odd structure and plethora of ideas. It certainly bodes well at any rate.
Late for Nothing is due out August 6th on Century Media Records. Pre-orders will be available soon!
