ACT OF DEFIANCE – the heavy metal group featuring the veteran talents of Chris Broderick on guitar, Henry Derek on vocals, also Shawn Drover on drums and Matt Bachand on bass – will return with their new album, “Old Scars, New Wounds“, on September 29th via Metal Blade Records.
After slamming back into the metalscape with their first video/single “M.I.A.“, ACT OF DEFIANCE is back today with a second new music video for the track, “Overexposure“. Directed by Vince Edwards, the melodic scorcher is backed with fast-paced imagery of the band members in their finest form – churning out a precise metal assault! Check out the official video below. You can pre-order the album in the following formats:
-180g Black Vinyl
-Golden Vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
-Auburn Marbled Vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
On “Old Scars, New Wounds“, ACT OF DEFIANCE has upped the ante. Each of the 11 new tracks sound fresh and urgent while wielding a timeless quality that will connect powerfully with metal fans new and old – and there aren’t many contemporary bands who can make such a claim. Naturally blending a plethora of metallic styles and never recycling ideas, “Old Scars, New Wounds” is probably an even more dynamic and diverse collection than its predecessor.
The title – plucked from the blistering track “Conspiracy Of The Gods” – stands as a metaphor for life in general, and the breadth of lyrical matter covered is as broad as the styles of heavy music found on the record.
