The first single from WATAIN’s new album, The Wild Hunt, will be released on June 25th in North America as a limited 7″ and digital download (see below for worldwide release dates and formats). A trailer for this new single, “All That May Bleed,” can be viewed below:

WATAIN comments about the track:

“‘All That May Bleed’ shows but one facet of a quite diverse album, but we chose this song as a first glimpse into ‘The Wild Hunt’ because of its bombastic lunacy and white-eyed malevolence which could be said to constitute a main foundation for the album. The lyric is an invitation to sacrificial blood letting, ecstatic zealotry and human sacrifice. The salt of Satan in the wounds of Christ!”

Side B will be a track called “Play with the Devil,” originally recorded by the black/heavy metal band TAIWAZ in 1988 in WATAIN’s hometown, Uppsala (Gottfrid Åhman from IN SOLITUDE participates on solo guitar in WATAIN’s version).

The single will be released in the following formats:

WATAIN’s upcoming album, The Wild Hunt, will be released on August 19th in Europe and August 20th in North America by His Master’s Noise, via Century Media Records. On August 24th, WATAIN will conduct the grand opening of The Wild Hunt world tour in their hometown of Uppsala at Svandammshallarna. The band comments:

“The plan is to make this concert everything we have ever wanted our concerts to be. In a touring scenario it is impossible to drag along all the horrors and infernal machinery we need for that, but performing in our hometown allows for a much more grandiose and spectacular stage show and performance. Mark our words, this will be one to remember!”
