Much to the joy of fans, Bristol-based experimental metal band Svalbard just announced a new record.

The group has been silent since the release of their first record, One Day All This Will End. The debut got a lot of headbangers excited about the band, as they made a major impact with their unique blend of political, blackened, punk-tinged, groovy metal.

Now they have released a brand-new album, It’s Hard To Have Hope. While not much is known about the sophomore release yet, it is going to be eight tracks long, and will come out on May 29 on Translation Loss and Holy Roar Records.

They’ve also released a new song from this album, “Unpaid Intern.” Check out the video below, and if you like what you hear, you can pre-order the record here.
