New York metal experimenters Candiria have announced the release of their eighth studio album. The full-length follow-up to 2009’s Kiss the Lie will be titled While They Were Sleeping and will be released through Metal Blade Records on October 7. The forthcoming 12-track effort will be a conceptual record, telling the story of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City.
The album’s artwork, track listing and a stream of the new track “Mereya” can be found after the break.
