Industrial metal legends Godflesh have returned to the stage and the studio, having undergone a few recent tours, as well as the release of a new EP earlier this summer, titled Decline and Fall. But brace yourselves, noisemongers, because Godflesh have announced they are releasing a brand new album. On Oct. 7, Godflesh will release A World Lit Only By Fire, the group’s first proper full-length since 2001’s stellar swan song, Hymns. The album will be released via Justin Broadrick’s own Avalanche Recordings. Check out the tracklist below and stream new song “New Dark Ages.”
