Two tracks from the CD — "Never Again" and "Awaken The Dreamers" — are available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.
Commented drummer Matt Kuykendall: "We have never been a band to write the same record twice and we have never enjoyed records that are one single and 11 worse versions of the same song. This record is the most diverse thing we have done to date. Every song is different and brings something new to the overall experience of the CD. When you look back to all the classic records of our time, they are full of all kinds of different songs. 'Vulgar Display of Power' just wouldn't be the same without 'This Love' and 'Hollow'. Our record is a breath of fresh air in a scene that is turning stale."
Capital Chaos has posted video footage of ALL SHALL PERISH performing the new song "When Life Meant More..." on June 13, 2008 at The Boardwalk in Orangevale, California. Also on the bill were THE WARRIORS, SINCE THE FLOOD and THE ACACIA STRAIN. Watch the clip below.
ALL SHALL PERISH will embark on a European tour late this summer along with SWORN ENEMY and WARBRINGER.
As previously reported, ALL SHALL PERISH's classic debut album, "Hate.Malice.Revenge", will be reissued on September 5 as part of the Nuclear Blast "Reloaded" series.
"The Price of Existence", which came out in August 2006, marked the debut of new lead singer Hernan "Eddie" Hermida and new lead guitarist Chris Storey.
