Hirax - Postpone New Album To 2014

Legendary thrash metal band Hirax have had to push back the release of the new studio album Immortal Legacy to 2014.

Singer and mastermind Katon W. De Pena says: "We are sorry for the delays as we know that the fans are waiting desperately for the album, but we have had some unexpected delays in the studio and we do not want to release a half hearted album. Our fans deserve only the best, so watch out for one of the best thrash metal records released in a long time. We are also sorry that the Flotsam & Jetsam / Hirax European tour is cancelled, but due to circumstances beyond our control, we had to pull the plug. We are planning a full scale US tour in March, and have further plans to return to Europe. As a little compensation, we will release a digital single for the song "Hellion Rising" on November 22nd. Thanks for all your understanding and patience, and be sure that 2014 will be a killer year for Hirax. Horns Up!"

The album will be released now in Germany on February 21st, in Europe on February 24th and in the US/Canada on March 4th through SPV/Steamhammer as CD, gatefold coloured LP and download.

The new digital single "Hellion Rising" will be available worldwide on November 22nd.

I don't believe the "one of the best thrash records released in a long time" comment for a single second, but the fact they don't want to release a crappy album and are delaying this to ensure it's something they'd be happy to release to their fans is certainly commendable.

Might as well pick this up when it comes out as well: not listened to Hirax yet.
