It will be released through Silver Lining Music as a Deluxe CD, 12" Vinyl Album in Black and colour variants and digital formats. Check out also the first streaming single, "Unbreakable", via YouTube channel.

Track listing is as follows:

01. Sincere
02. Unbreakable

Founding member and drummer Martin Lopez comments: "Unbreakable" is a song about how you limit yourself as a human, by blindly believing in something." Vocalist and co-founding member Joel Ekelöf continues, "Politicians and the media paint everything as black or white, entitling you to try to destroy your opponent instead of trying to find common ground. It’s key to be humble and open to different viewpoints to keep growing, "Unbreakable" feels like a marriage between classic-metal and Soen."

This single track shows that Soen is always Soen, and never disappointed.

I like it, but I feel they're treading very close to autopilot territory. I'm not disappointed, but not terribly excited for the upcoming album either.

I feel like they are getting closer and closer to modern Disturbed xD (who I enjoy occasionally btw)

Easily one of my favourite bands up until Lykaia. After that though, the more popular they get, the less I like their music. This new track is hugely disappointing. A somewhat heavy and catchy riff, and a chorus straight from the gutters of pop land. That seems to be the recipe for every single song after Lykaia and I don't like it at all.
Black Crown Initiate have ruined a lot of bands for me...

Lykaia is awesome but I definitely have some favorites from Lotus and Imperial too so can't agree with you. I can however agree with them repeating ideas/becoming formulaic because they've been using permutations of the riff from "Sectarian" at 3:55 in every album since haha
