Full of Hell has announced that their upcoming album Coagulated Bliss is due out on April 26 via Closed Casket Activities.

The eclectic extreme metal band also released their doom-influenced lead single "Doors to Mental Agony" alongside an unsettling music video on Wednesday, March 6. The band earned a greater degree of visibility outside of metal circles earlier this year, when an unexpected collaboration with shoegaze act Nothing drew glowing reviews and mainstream music press coverage.

The new record is due out on April 19 via Closed Casket Activities.

Frontman Dylan Walker explained the album's title in a press release.

"Your happiness is just out of reach and you don’t know why," he says. "Too much of this bliss, you think you’ve found your endpoint, but it’s really just this small, tiny, little thing that’s going to ruin your f–king life. And that could be anything.

"People tend to burrow themselves so deeply into things they love… It’s too much of a good thing, and it almost cheapens it."

The upcoming record is a culmination of everything the band has accomplished so far, guitarist Spencer Hazard said.

"I wanted to try to take every aspect of what we’ve done from previous releases and integrate it into this one," he said.

Walker added that the band was truly comfortable while creating Coagulated Bliss.

"We’ve shed any kind of 'do we belong in this space, what do people expect of us,'" he said. "The joy is in the pursuit."

The LP was recorded with Kevin Bernstein at Developing Nations in Baltimore and mixed by Taylor Young at the Pit in Van Nuys. Young also recorded the demo for Jesse Rutherford's new hardcore project Valley Girls.

Full of Hell will promote the new record with a North American tour this spring with support from the death metal band Dying Fetus. Both groups hail from Maryland.

The trek will begin in Silver Spring, Maryland, on April 25 and end in Portland on May 19. They'll also appear at the Sound and Fury event in Los Angeles this July.

Walker spoke to Q after he and the shoegaze band Nothing released a collaboration album called When No Birds Sang together late last year.

"We're not making records for other people," he said when asked about the critical acclaim the project has received.

The record fused Nothing's atmospheric shoegaze with Full of Hell's full-throated grindcore. The two sounds might seem like an odd pairing, but they work well together in this avant-garde context.

"I love salty and sweet foods," Walker said. "They compliment each other really well."
