New Orleans’ infamous band Eyehategod are set to release their first studio album in over thirteen years through a partnership with Century Media for the world outside North America and Japan. Housecore Records will be releasing the new Eyehategod album in North America while Daymare Recordings will handle the album’s release in Japan. The album, which is self-titled, is pencilled for release on 26th May 2014.

The recording process for the new album started with producer Billy Anderson back in the fold (he recorded 1996’s Dopesick). Anderson tracked drummer Joey LaCaze’s tracks prior to LaCaze’s tragic passing last year. A few months later the band reconvened at longtime friend Phil Anselmo’s home studio with producer Stephen Berrigan (Down) to finalize the recording. Mixed by Sanford Parker (Voivod, Corrections House), the album was entirely put together and financed by the band who later shopped it around to labels. With long last friendships with many of the CM European staff, they felt this was the best home for them. Frontman Mike IX mentions:

I have to say I don’t believe we’ve lost nary a step in the creation of this album and we think these newer songs are a killer combination of classic EHG mixed along with our best production, mixing, engineering and songwriting in 13 years. The main and total tragic break in the chain, was obviously last year’s death of our great friend and drummer Joey Lacaze. However, his original drum tracks made it onto the final master recordings and we’re fucking psyched about that…

The first song from the new album, Agitation! Proganda!, can be heard below.
