Phoenix death metallers Lago have announced the release of their second full-length album and follow-up to 2014’s Tyranny. The upcoming effort, which was recorded by Ryan Butler and mixed and mastered by Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams), will be titled Sea of Duress and will be released on June 8 via Unique Leader Records. Vocalist and guitarist Cole Jacobsen said of the album:
“Sea of Duress is the next step for Lago in terms of how we’re writing. Though the Tampa Bay death metal influences can still be heard, we have definitely stepped outside of our box so to speak. We love and appreciate the pioneer death metal acts, however, we have never approached our lyrics the way a lot of the others have. We tend to write about depression, isolation, and the fear of, and necessity of coping with tyranny. We currently live in a country entrenched in turmoil. I think a lot of that can be felt in this album. We’re thrilled to be releasing this album on Unique Leader Records, and cannot wait for a broader audience to hear what we’ve created.”
