On October 27th, Wayfarer will follow up the majestic A Romance With Violence (2020) with new album, American Gothic, via Profound Lore Records. The band's moving atmospheres are brought to new and expansive extremes in partnership with the acclaimed Arthur Rizk (Eternal Champion, Kreator). Lead single, False Constellation, brings forth a variety of vocal styles amidst powerful riffing and ethereal melodic sensibilities, paving the way for this momentous full-length chapter.

Guitarist/vocalist Shane McCarthy comments:

"This album is an exploration of the American idea, and the darkness that surrounds it. It was built from the ground up to encapsulate the feeling of this place and its bitter history in every way, fully integrating traditional musical stylings into its darker and more extreme sound, and serves as a definitive statement on Western American Metal.

We were able to fully realize this in working with producer Arthur Rizk to bring the album to life, and it's in its own territory now. This is the Wayfarer sound, and this is 'American Gothic'. We look forward to sharing it with the world."

Stream False Constellation below and pre-order American Gothic via Profound Lore.
