23:52 - Apothecary Fast food workers planning a strike in support of $15/hour wages next month. I'm a tutor in a reading lab at a college and I don't even make that much, a bit of an overestimation of one's importance, don'tcha think?
Dutch metallers ReVamp have revealed today that their new album will be titled Wild Card. It will be released via Nuclear Blast on August 23rd, 2013 (and not in September as announced) and you can already take a look at the album's cover below. Plus, you can watch the first album trailer, including video footage from the studio and a brand new song snippet as well.
The artwork takes the album's concept literally and was created by Richard Stark of NI Concept and Design.
Floor Jansen explains how the title came about: "This album became the most aggressive album I've ever made and in the lyrics I tell a lot about my personal experiences of the last years. This resulted into some heavy stories and some openhearted 'screams' I needed out of my system. It matches the violence of the music in a great way, we wrote as a great team! But not one sentence or word can really cover the contents of this album. Its variety in all its ingredients makes it almost impossible. A wild card is an unpredictable and unforeseeable factor. You don't know what you're getting, or when. That's this album! It's 100% ReVamp and it's your wild card!"
