Cali deathcore stalwarts Carnifex have announced their new album, World War X, which is set for a August 2nd release via Nuclear Blast. The news comes along with the LP’s first single, “No Light Shall Save Us,” and the song’s cinematic, Scott Hansen–directed music video, both of which feature a guest appearance from Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz.
“Collaborating with Alissa on ‘No Light Shall Save Us’ was a joy from the start,” Carnifex frontman Scott Ian Lewis enthused. “Alissa was able to elevate the song with a dynamic that’s completely new for Carnifex. There is a melody and depth on ‘No Light Shall Save Us‘ unlike any previous Carnifex song. It’s the perfect start to your journey through World War X.”
Alissa White-Gluz added, “With ‘No Light Shall Save Us’ I think Carnifex and I have been able to create a really special piece. The video shoot was an incredible experience and from the second I read the lyrics and heard Scott’s vision for the song I knew I could really build on it and express myself. I’m excited to share this with the world!”
