Tau Cross -- the awesome metal/punk supergroup with frontman Rob “The Baron” Miller of Amebix, drummer Michel Langevin of Voivod, and members of Misery and Provoked -- have announced that they'll follow their killer 2017 sophomore album Pillar of Fire with LP3, Messengers of Deception, this year. It drops August 9 via Relapse, and first single "Burn With Me" is out now. The band says the song "was written as a reminder of the sacred path of the Heretic, in the age of the new Puritans," and it's a real ripper that should instantly get you excited for this album. The band slowed it down a bit on their last album, but this one sees them speeding away at a mile a minute, and The Baron's gravelly bark is as punishing as ever.
