On May 19th, Blindfolded And Led To The Woods will release their new album, Rejecting Obliteration, via Prosthetic Records, complete with an Eliran Kantor cover illustration to indulge in. Per Kantor, the physical formats of the album will create an endless loop when stacked next to each other, along with the back cover. Beyond the album's visual allure, Blindfolded batter listeners in with crushing aggression.

Guitarist/vocalist Stuart Henley-Minchington comments:

"Exposing our most vulnerable selves and exploring harrowing territory both musically and lyrically, we created an album with a certain catharsis to it that we feel is a testament to our resilient nature. Inspired by some of the most personal challenges of our lives and the events that shaped us since the release of our previous album 'Nightmare Withdrawals', Rejecting Obliteration stands as a defiant body of music bursting with a philosophy and energy that we can all overcome whatever stands in our path toward healing."

Vocalist Stace Fifield adds:

"Our first offering from Rejecting Obliteration comes in the form Methlehem. The lyrics meander the dimly-lit corridors of religious fanaticism, shining a spotlight on the stark similarities that can be drawn between drug addicts and those who devote their lives to their deity. The church is a cartel and billions are hooked on their premium product. Visually, we teamed up with award-winning director Amber Beaton to direct a video that would stitch the lyrics to the music, conjuring the dark and claustrophobic dimension that the song aggressively commands."

Stream Methlehem below and pre-order Rejecting Obliteration.
