Year Of The Knife Announce Debut Album, Release New Single

Delaware metal five-piece Year Of The Knife have announced their debut album, Internal Incarceration, out Aug. 7 via Pure Noise Records, and released new single “Virtual Narcotic.”

About the track, bassist Madison Watkins said in a press release:

Almost every straight edge person I know has been touched by loss. Those experiences can make you feel alone, but they’re something a lot of people within hardcore have gone through and can relate to. People that gravitate towards this music often have this darkness in their lives, but hardcore can be a beacon where they can find community and relief. It can be a really incredible outlet for getting that negativity out and finding people who understand you.

The less-than-two-minute song is a dark, energetic flash of pure metal that picks up speed with each second. This follows the release of the equally crazy “Sick Statistic.”
