Watch FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's Entire Sacramento Concert

Capital Chaos TV has uploaded video footage of FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's entire June 12 performance at Holy Diver in Sacramento, California. Check it out below.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM will release its new album, "The End Of Chaos", on November 9 via AFM Records. Vocalist Erik "A.K." Knutson told The Metal Voice about the record: "This actually sounds like a little more up-to-date extension of the last one. There's a little bit of everything on it. A lot of vocals, a lot of vocals. A lot of guitar; there's so much guitar work on this record, it's really kind of nice. It runs in and out of melody after melody."

Added guitarist Michael Gilbert: "Yeah, there's a lot of guitar on it. Me and Steve [Conley, guitar] battle it out. What's kind of cool is that he records his stuff, his solos and guitar work at his house, then I record at my house. It's a little bit of a competition. He'll send me something and be like 'Hey, check out the solo I did.' And I'm like 'Shit! I got to redo mine to match what this guy's doing.' We get that competition going back and forth, so it's kind of fun. We actually push the bar up for each other and this guy [pointing to Erik]. I can't wait to hear what this guy did on the new record coming up. It's pretty badass."

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM recently officially welcomed Ken Mary (ALICE COOPER, ACCEPT) as the band's permanent drummer. Mary began touring with the group last year after Jason Bittner was invited to join OVERKILL.

"It's always awesome to play with the mighty FLOTSAM AND JETSAM," Mary said. "The music is super-challenging and at the same time a great deal of fun to play. With such great musicians in the band that are also great guys, it's going to be a blast!"

"We're excited to announce that Ken will be our new drummer," added the band. "Ken has already tracked all the drums for our upcoming album slated for release later this year, and we're all looking forward to the fans experiencing a new chapter in the history of FLOTSAM AND JETSAM."

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM is currently touring North America alongside Swedish power metal veterans HAMMERFALL.
