"The World Is A Thorn", the new album from DEMON HUNTER, sold 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 39 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on March 9 via Solid State Records, the group's fifth CD follows the landmark documentary "45 Days", last year's "Live In Nashville" collection and a catalog of landmark releases that have made the band one of the most important in the genre.

"The World Is A Thorn" was produced by the band's longtime collaborator Aaron Sprinkle (ACCEPTANCE, ANBERLIN, THE ALMOST) and mixed by powerhouse producer Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, TRIVIUM). It's a pairing emblematic of how skillfully DEMON HUNTER has always blended metallic might with melody.

DEMON HUNTER's "Collapsing" video was filmed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by Endeavor Media (ANBERLIN, OWL CITY) and features Björn "Speed" Strid of Swedish metal band SOILWORK, who contributes guest vocals to the song. "We're all huge SOILWORK fans so this was an honor for us," said Ryan Clark. "Speed was on a very short wish list of ours for guys that we would want to have do vocals on the record so we were really, really excited when he agreed to do it."
