Candy has announced their highly anticipated new album, Heaven Is Here, set to release June 24 via Relapse Records. Known as much for their show-stopping live performances as their critically acclaimed brand of hardcore, Candy’s forthcoming, 10-track project was produced by extreme music powerhouse Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Black Curse, Prurient) alongside Candy guitarist Michael Quick. Heaven Is Here marks the band’s first full-length release with Relapse and showcases their uncanny power to shatter the limits of what is expected of metal, hardcore and punk.
In tandem with the album’s announcement, Candy offer lead single “Human Condition Above Human Opinion” to introduce Heaven Is Here. The entirely digitally-rendered visual for the track was co-directed by Quick and digital artist Nikita Gorshkov, whose 3D art masterfully brings the song’s dystopian themes to life.
Heaven Is Here proves to be a record where the songs feel like a merciful reprieve from the screeching interludes, a masterful almanac of noise welded together by the unpredictable ways that we hear and reproduce the music we love in the era of unending dopamine hits and virulent technological doom.
Heaven Is Here will represent the follow-up to Candy’s celebrated debut album Good To Feel, and the bands’ 2019 singles “Super-Stare” and “Win Free Love.”
