The Hellacopters will release a new studio album, Eyes Of Oblivion, on April 1, 2022 via Nuclear Blast. It will mark their first full-length collection of new material since 2008’s Head Off.
The Hellacopters guitarist/vocalist Nicke Andersson states: “The album has 10 songs, and although it’s obviously not easy to be objective at all, I think musically it sums up everything we’ve touched upon from the start in 1994 up until now. Some of the songs date back as far as 10 years or more, and some were written more recently. It’s rock and roll played with high energy, so for lack of a better term, I say high-energy rock and roll. You could say it sounds like The Beatles meets Judas Priest or Lynyrd Skynyrd meets the Ramones but the best way to describe this album is that it sounds like The Hellacopters today.”
To celebrate the kick-off of this new chapter for The Hellacopters, the Swedes are sharing with you a band new single, the anthemic album opener “Reap A Hurricane.” The song presents itself as a potential future fan-favourite with all of the juicy riffs and in-your-face swagger you could’ve possibly hoped for, topped off with a captivating chorus that won’t leave your head any time soon.
“Reap A Hurricane” continues the good old Hellacopters tradition of releasing physical seven-inch singles in each album cycle. The seven-inch vinyl of “Reap A Hurricane” will be released on February 4, 2022, and it features an exclusive song called “Done Fighting” as a B-side. The seven-inch is available in two different color variants, red and green, which applies to both the vinyl and the respective cover.
