Australian rock band Karnivool will release their third album Asymmetry this year via Density Records. The exact U.S. release date along with pre-order information will be announced shortly.
Asymmetry is the band's first new release in over four years (following their sophomore release, Sound Awake) and boasts 14 tracks.
"I think each time Karnivool walk into another record we all want to explore new ground," explained vocalist, Ian Kenny. "We want to open the door to our musical basement, switch the light off and tumble down the stairs into god knows what. Each time we switch the light on again we are a different band."
"We wanted this record to be a natural evolution from Sound Awake," adds guitarist Drew Goddard. "It needed to be more honest and raw, sound wise and song wise, exploring unchartered territory for the band while holding true to the things that make Karnivool... Karnivool."
"As a theme or title, it's very much a broad brushstroke," says Goddard of the album's moniker. "It's one that we feel encompasses where we are at in a musical sense at this point in time. We are very much into big ideas that are open to interpretation, ideas that can mean different things to different members of the band as well as the listener."
