After releasing their great new single "An Offering to the Night" in December, Philly metalcore band Jesus Piece have now announced their anticipated sophomore album, …So Unknown, due April 14 via Century Media. The album was co-produced and mixed by Randy Leboeuf (Every Time I Die, The Acacia Strain, etc), and drummer Luis Aponte says:

The making of the record was nothing short of all-consuming. It was an intense and challenging process. The record reflects a lot of confusion, but also, evolution. There was a lot of uncertainty and emotion during the pandemic– we all changed and grew so much. So if there is a single thought or concept to the record, it’s constant metamorphosis. That’s also how we operated as a band on this LP– spending a lot of time songwriting and fleshing things out as a unit, and then upping our game from there. It’s definitely a reflection of us as more mature, playing the best we’ve ever played and feeling like a real band for the first time.

A big goal on ...So Unknown, outside of songwriting and technical goals, was to capture the same energy on record that we have live - for people to get that sense of urgency and danger.

We've got an exclusive "tigers eye translucent" vinyl variant of the album, limited to just 300 copies. Pre-order yours while they last. Here's a mock-up:

The album includes "An Offering to the Night," and along with the announcement comes the release of a second single, "Gates of Horn." It's another dose of pulverizing, futuristic metalcore and you can really hear the progression from their 2018 debut LP Only Self. Check out the new song and its Eric Richter-directed video below.

Jesus Piece are also opening Show Me The Body's 2023 tour, alongside Scowl, Zulu, and TRiPP JONES. That hits NYC on March 24 at Brooklyn Steel. All dates are listed below.
