Zeal & Ardor unleash "aggressive" first single from upcoming third album

Our first proper taste of a new Zeal & Ardor record is here: following 2018 second LP Stranger Fruit and last year's Wake Of A Nation EP, the avant-garde metallers have shared crushingly intense new single, Run.

"Run is the first single we are releasing off of our self-titled album because, while there are definitely familiar elements present, it sets the tone for things to come," explains mastermind Manuel Gagneux. "It is surely one of our most aggressive songs yet, but that is just a vanguard of what lies ahead. So run while you still can."
