Cattle Decapitation have issued a stream for the first single off their upcoming full-length Death Atlas. Titled “One Day Closer to the End of the World”, the track can be heard below. Death Atlas is scheduled for release on November 29th through Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders, which are available now at Speaking of the album, frontman Travis Ryan commented:

“The core concept of this record is humanity’s insignificance despite what we’ve convinced ourselves. That’s kind of why this album cover takes place in space, to remind you that ‘the universe always finds a way to purge’. In the grand scheme of things, our species is merely a fleeting thought.

I want people to be shocked into thinking more about their futures, their loved ones, the pain they’re potentially subjecting their future generations to. Everyone just seems to live in the now with no care for tomorrow, and that’s incorrect thinking, as far as today goes. Don’t make tomorrow a cancelled check.”

The group recorded the effort at Flatline Audio with producer Dave Otero. It also features a number of guests, including: Laure Le Prunenec (Igorrr, Ricinn), Riccardo Conforti (Void of Silence), Dis Pater (Midnight Odyssey), Jon Fishman (Phish) – plus, brass instrumentalists from Ottone Pesante.

In addition to their recently announced North American tour with Atheist, Full of Hell, Primitive Man, Author & Punisher, and Vitriol; the group have announced the Global Warmup Tour. That run will see them hit the UK and Europe at the end of October with Osiah providing support.
