Whitechapel launches performance video for “Anticure”

Whitechapel reveals video for the first single, "Lost Boy" from new album 'Kin'

New album, Kin, out now
US Tour Begins February 18th with Cannibal Corpse, Revocation, Shadow Of Intent

To close out 2021, Whitechapel released their eighth studio album, Kin, via Metal Blade Records – which critics are hailing as the band’s “most diverse offering yet” (Metal Injection). Today, the deathcore crew unleashes “Anticure,” the fourth video from Kin. To stream and purchase this acclaimed new record, head to: metalblade.com/whitechapel

At this stage in the game, the name Whitechapel commands respect. Already sitting on one of the most enviable catalogs in contemporary metal, in 2021, they returned with the mighty Kin, which was produced once again by Mark Lewis with David Castillo at Ghostward Studios in Sweden handling the mixing, then Ted Jensen mastering it in Nashville, TN. The resulting album is a dynamic and diverse collection, further advancing the band’s sound into new territory without losing sight of what brought them to this point. Kin has gone on to hit #24 on the Current Albums Chart, peaking at #3 on Hard Music Albums and #6 on the Independent Albums Chart.

With the full-on death metal assault that kicks off both “Lost Boy” and “To The Wolves” as brutal and serrated as extreme metal gets, vocalist Phil Bozeman also explores his wide-ranging singing voice more, while cutting loose with his trademark roar across Kin‘s eleven tracks – which have stunned media worldwide:

A confident, slick and coherent album, ‘Kin’ is a fine addition to the back-catalogue of one of metal’s most cherished underdogs.” – KERRANG

Whitechapel continue to invest in their own creative development in a way that clearly differentiates themselves from their contemporaries.” – KNOTFEST

…a masterclass in suspenseful songwriting…” – NEW NOISE

…the band’s most multifaceted and mature record yet…” – EVERYTHING IS NOISE

‘Kin’ is WSOU’s album of the month for its impeccable songwriting, profound and mysterious lyrics, and perfect pacing, showcasing the band proving themselves as masters of their craft” – WSOU

Fans can catch Whitechapel on the road next month with Cannibal CorpseRevocation, and Shadow Of Intent for an extensive USA tour, kicking off in Atlanta, GA on February 18th.
