Back in June, the band made posts from the studio officially affirming work on a new album, but has been a while since fans have heard many new tunes. Over the past four years, the band has had plenty of time to write new music. The band has been working out new material, tracks like the mellow “Music Moves Me,” “Black Heart” and the heavier “Antisocial.” Recently, during their live set the band has been adding “Up All Night” and the now released single, Starry Night. Soon, fans will be able to finally hear everything The Expendables have been working towards.
On January 13th fans will be able to hear the full studio record, then starting January 24th, fans will be able to hear these new tracks live when The Expendables take their music around the nation. The Winter Blackout 2015 has been scheduled and it is coming to over 35 cities between the end of January into March. Joining The Expendables this year will be Ballyhoo! on select dates (1/29-3/7) and Fortunate Youth on select dates (1/23-1/28, 3/12-3/15). Katastro will be playing the entire tour!
