Blackened Crust Band WILDSPEAKER Releases Ominous New Track “Renewal”



Dallas-native blackened crust band WILDSPEAKER will release their upcoming album, Spreading Adder, this coming Friday, June 23 via Prosthetic Records. Pre-orders for the album in LP, CD and all digital formats are available here:
In anticipation of this week’s release, WILDSPEAKER have released the album’s closer track, “Renewal”, via Decibel Magazine. The ominous track starts out with an atmospheric, measured heaviness – eerily preparing the listener for a breakneck peak mid-track. Listen here:
Vocalist Natalie Kahan says, “‘Renewal’ is a lesson in loss and transformation. Like a snake sheds its skin, we should kill the parts of ourselves we don’t need anymore. As soon as we finished writing ‘Renewal’, we knew it would be the perfect way to end the album. It perfectly captures what we organically write as a band when we try to write music to a theme or story.”
Spreading Adder offers a non-stop grind of driving riffs and thick, weighty atmosphere. Thematically and lyrically, Spreading Adder focuses on the resilience of nature and downfall of human civilization.
Listen to two other tracks from the album here:
