Zeal & Ardor have announced a new album. The blues/black metal group will release their self-titled album on February 11 via MVKA. The first track they’ve shared from the album is titled “Bow.” Hear it below.
The group’s frontman Manuel Gagneux says in a press release, “With the self-titled record, we have arrived at where I imagined this project should sound like. It’s the longest we’ve worked on a single record and I believe it shows. The most important thing for an album of ours to do, is transport you instantly into our mood, our world. Even though this might not be the one you might expect from us, this record certainly delivers on that front. We had time to hone in to what we think makes us interesting and what sounds we would like to explore. Through this we have found our home. Home is burning. Welcome home.”
Zeal & Ardor follows 2018’s Stranger Fruit.
