Genre-crossing NYC vets Candiria bridge the gaps between metal, punk, jazz, rap and more, and after returning from hiatus 2015, they're now set to release a new full length. It's called While They Were Sleeping and it drops October 7 via Metal Blade (pre-order). We're premiering the video for the title track, which is as crazy as they've ever sounded, with body-slamming rhythms, a soaringly melodic chorus, and a clean jazz interlude. If you never dug into this band's discography but you're into, like, Glassjaw or even Between the Buried and Me, you should check them out now and this new song's a great place to start:

As mentioned, Candiria are celebrating the album in their hometown with a run of shows in all five boroughs. They've also got that E-Town Concrete 20th anniversary show in Jersey right before the five-boroughs run, and a tour of other cities starting about a month later with Dalek (who are also on the Brooklyn show). Updated schedule below.
