Billy Talent today revealed details about the upcoming release of their fourth full length album. In a posting on the band’s website, www.billytalent.com, the group announced that the title of the album is Dead Silence and that it is scheduled to be released in Canada September 11, 2012. The band also posted a copy of the new album cover designed by Ken Taylor (check it out above).
Dead Silence was recorded at The Armoury Studios (Vancouver), Noble Street Studios (Toronto) and at Billy Talent Headquarters in Toronto. The album was produced by Billy Talent guitarist Ian D’Sa who has, over the years built up his production chops working with the likes of Die Mannequin, One Second 2 Late and The Mahones as well as co-producing Billy Talent II with Gavin Brown.
In late June, Fox listeners got an early taste of the album with the release of the track “Viking Death March.” The track was released as a thank you to fans for being patient while the band finished up work on Dead Silence.
The official video for “Viking Death March” will premiere on www.billytalent.com on Friday, July 13, 2012. The clip was filmed by award-winning directors Michael Maxxis and David Logan during the band’s recent European tour and captures all of the live excitement and energy the band has become renown for.
