“Anyone that knows Demon Hunter, understands that the visual element of the band means a great deal to us.” Says Vocalist Ryan Clark. “Every album cover is a challenge, in that it’s a re-envisioning of the band’s iconic logo. We try, with each record, to make sure that re-envisioning is creative, unique and well-executed. Justin Kamerer is the artist behind the work this time, and I really love how the vision for ‘True Defiance‘ has turned out. His attention to detail and his creative approach to our logo bring a really fresh look to something that’s been used in over 100 different ways over the last decade. To me it feel like this is what the DH logo was always supposed to look like.”

Tomorrow the band will be revealing a second Standard Edition cover that will also be available for “True Defiance,” and on Wednesday the cover for the Deluxe Edition. Keep checking back for more!

True Defiance” is available in stores and online April 10th.

Demon Hunter’s New Album Titled “True Defiance”

Demon Hunter’s sixth full-length album “True Defiance” will be available in stores and online April 10th!

Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, Emery) and mixed by Jason Suecoff (All That Remains, Trivium), “True Defiance” finds Demon Hunter continuing in their hard rock evolution while embracing the components that have always formed the backbone of their music: true metal, dark rock and balladry.

“This record is without a doubt our most aggressive,” says vocalist and band co-founder Ryan Clark. “Every Demon Hunter record must be a step up from the last. I know that’s a goal for every band, but it seldom works that way – especially today, especially in metal. It seems like most bands’ prime years are long behind them. I refuse to let that be the case for us.”

On “True Defiance,” Ryan Clark, Tim “Yogi” Watts (drums), Jonathan Dunn (bass) and Patrick Judge (lead guitar) are joined by their longtime friend Jeremiah Scott (guitar), whose credits as a metal musician (The Showdown) and producer (Living Sacrifice) are well established. The partnership marks a vital new chapter in the celebrated history of Demon Hunter, who are currently in their 10th year of writing, breaking and erasing the rules of hard rock. Not ones to rest on their laurels, however, the members have created an album that not only lives up to their own lofty standards, but sets a new high-water mark for what DH is capable of.

“We’ve been extremely underwhelmed with metal for the last five years or so, and that’s been the fuel to create this record,” Clark explains. “With an extreme over-saturation of false, fleeting, trend-hopping noise in today’s metal scene, we had to make something we’ve been longing to hear. Something truly meaningful and artistic. Something our fans would love and something that will turn the heads of those who have ignored us for the past decade.”

The tracklisting for “True Defiance” can be found below:

1. Crucifix
2. God Forsaken
3. My Destiny
4. Wake
5. Tomorrow Never Comes
6. Someone To Hate
7. This I Know

Next year marks the ten-year anniversary of DEMON HUNTER.

Each of the band’s albums and other projects were released with Solid State Records. Both the band and label are proud to announce a deal that will see them continue to partner together.

“Solid State has always been an important part of DEMON HUNTER,” said DEMON HUNTER singer, songwriter and co-founder Ryan Clark. “They helped market the band before we’d even started writing our first record and they continue to push the band further with each new album. From the very beginning, Solid State has allowed DEMON HUNTER to do things our own unique way and they’ve become a vital part of the band’s existence. Re-signing was a no-brainer for us.”

The first DEMON HUNTER album emerged in 2002. Its cover, like all subsequent releases (including their live album), was emblazoned with a now iconic symbol that’s been tattooed, spray painted, sculpted and otherwise creatively displayed by the band’s devoted following ever since. The group blended devastating heaviness with melodic hooks long before it was fashionable.

With close to half a million albums sold around the world, DEMON HUNTER’s unique connection with their fans and steadfast commitment to the presentation, message and musicianship of their output continues to invigorate and inspire. “Demon Hunter”, “Summer of Darkness”, “The Triptych” and “Storm The Gates Of Hell” are all landmarks in the genre. “45 Days” chronicled fans across the world (and in the Armed Forces abroad) whose lives have been touched in empowering and breathtaking ways by DEMON HUNTER’s sound and fury.

“I am elated to have the opportunity to continue to work with DEMON HUNTER,” remarked Solid State/Tooth & Nail Records president and founder Brandon Ebel. “DEMON HUNTER is a core artist for the Solid State/Tooth & Nail family. Ryan Clark is an extraordinary songwriter, musician, artist and friend. We’re looking forward to supporting Ryan and the DEMON HUNTER team on future projects and further developing the DEMON HUNTER brand worldwide.”

DEMON HUNTER’s latest album, “The World Is A Thorn”, debuted with the group’s highest placement on The Billboard 200 chart thus far, signifying the continued passion of the “Hunters” and the “Blessed Resistance”, as their official fan community is called. They’ve helped introduce bands like AUGUST BURNS RED, HASTE THE DAY and OH, SLEEPER on their headlining tours. They’ve been a mainstay at major Christian festivals. And last year they were direct support to AS I LAY DYING.

With a new batch of songs at the ready, sure to inspire those who’ve drawn close to DEMON HUNTER classics like “Not Ready to Die”, “Fading Away”, “Undying”, “Carry Me Down”, “Tie This Around Your Neck” and more, Ryan Clark and DEMON HUNTER will return to producer/longtime collaborator Aaron Sprinkle in November to begin work on what will become their sixth album.

“We’re knee-deep in the writing process and the songs are sounding as intense as ever,” Clark revealed. “We’ve always made an effort to stay true to our sound, but we like to push the boundaries of that blueprint with each release. These new songs have a lot of varying influences: from Viking metal to classic thrash; grooving ’90s rock to stompy hardcore. Our goal, as it is with each record, is to blend these influences into one cohesive but unique DEMON HUNTER album.”
