HE IS LEGEND To Release 'White Bat' Album In June

North Carolina's HE IS LEGEND will release its new album, "White Bat", on June 28 via Spinefarm Records.

The new single from the disc, "Boogiewoman", can be streamed below.

"'White Bat' is the purest, most passionate, and the most united HE IS LEGEND has been since we wrote 'It Hates You'. I think this album has something for every fan of each chapter in our history," says singer Schuylar Croom about the album, which is HE IS LEGEND's sixth full length overall and second for Spinefarm.

The quartet — Croom, Adam Tanbouz (lead guitar), Matty Williams (bass) and Jesse Shelley (drums) — is bolstered by a cult fan base that includes members of your favorite band.

For "White Bat", HE IS LEGEND diligently worked across the country. Shelley recorded drums in Atlanta at Glow In The Dark Studios with Matt Goldman. Guitars and bass were tracked at Warriorsound with Al Jacobs. Meanwhile, Croom ventured out West to reteam with Mitch Marlow for vocals in Los Angeles.

Inspired by Michelle McNamara's true crime classic "I'll Be Gone In The Dark", Croom wandered around the shadiest and most shadowy corners of the city of angels. Getting into a menacing mindset for the concept, he visited the grave of Walt Disney, canvased mausoleums, went to the Museum of Death, and "sat in crazy seedy little bars, wrote, and got into this headspace — like preparing for an acting role."

Ultimately, "White Bat" "has a moodiness and heaviness we haven't ventured into in a while," according to Croom. "It's conceptual. More than the content and concept, the music is representative of what we are now."
