North Carolina riff-rockers ASG re-emerge with their sixth-full length and first new album in five years, titled "Survive Sunrise", due out June 15th 2018 on CD/2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records.
""Survive Sunrise" seemed like an appropriate opening track for our new album, to me the song kind of feels like an introduction- an intro but with the length and structure of a complete song. Hopefully it gives the listener some insight as to what they might encounter further down the record," commented ASG's Jason Shi.
Additionally, ASG have announced a U.S. headlining tour surrounding the release of "Survive Sunrise". The tour begins June 15 in Wilmington, NC, traverses through the East Coast and ends in Chapel Hill, NC on July 1. Support provided by Lo Pan and Beitthemeans on select shows. ASG will also tour the UK in May for Desertfest and support dates with Weedeater. A full list of confirmed tour dates is available below.
ASG’s sixth studio album Survive Sunrise is due out June 15th on CD/2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages are available via Relapse.com HERE and Digital Downloads / Streaming Services.
Recorded, mixed and mastered with longtime producer Matt Hyde (Deftones, Slayer, Monster Magnet), Survive Sunrise further expands upon ASG’s trademark blend of heavy, southern-fried, alt-rock fury and infectious, hook-centric accessibility. With unabashedly hooky vocals, evocative lyrics and well-honed musical chops, ASG create soaring, melodic rock anthems with a sunny, colorful vibe that are reminiscent of the album’s electrifying cover art, designed by Malleus (Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, The Melvins). Survive Sunrise is the perfect summertime hard rock album, one that rocks with wild abandon and will burrow into your head for years to come.
