UNEARTH delivers another bar raising track of extraordinary musicianship loaded with technical prowess and an utterly brutal vocal delivery with their new single ‘Into The Abyss’, taking listeners from dismal to hopeful and yet again raising UNEARTH to higher ground.

Trevor Phipps says, “A riff fueled interstellar endeavor sums up our third single ‘Into the Abyss’.  Our future planet is in disrepair and the fortunate are forced to flee to a distant world to continue the human race while billions of the less fortunate are left behind to meet a hellish end. Buz McGrath lights the path with a journey of melodic riffs, leads and solos that set it apart from the bulk of “The Wretched; The Ruinous” album. Beyond oblivion we ride!”

UNEARTH vocalist Trevor Phipps previously stated about the album: “‘The Wretched; The Ruinous‘ is a summation of our upcoming album as a whole musically and lyrically as it showcases the aggression, power, melody, energy and darkness that is full-throttle UNEARTH. Thematically, this lead track puts the full blame on mankind for the destruction of our planet, and the mass extinction of millions of species, as well as the eventual eradication of man due to our negligence with the climate crisis. The first video for the new record was shot in one of our favorite places to tour on the planet, Tokyo, Japan. The raw energy from the crowd was captured by the talented Seidai Takekoshi and his additional cinematographers Seijito Nishimi and Ryo Minekawa who all got into the crowd, in the pit and on stage to properly capture the power and emotion this song brings and we are excited to show you all the end result. See you on the road worldwide in 2023 and beyond.”

UNEARTH are nothing short of standard-bearers and keepers of the faith for American metalcore. They were the band born in the breakdown who never wavered from their love for European death metal melodicism, supercharged by American thrash and hardcore. Now, nearly 25 years into a career that’s seen the Massachusetts mob play innumerable gigs and massive festivals on six continents, sell hundreds of thousands of records, and inspire some of the most important bands in extreme metal today, they remain a force to contend with. For UNEARTH, the mission is simple: keep being UNEARTH.

Says the band: “We formed this band to make music for us, not trying to create something for anyone else. As soon as we did that people connected to it, and it’s kept us pushing onward for almost 25 years. We look forward to 25 more.”

Adds Phipps: “The mentality has always been to look at UNEARTH as long term as possible. We’ve continuously cited the careers of CANNIBAL CORPSE, TESTAMENT, EXODUS and SLAYER as bands that kept going, never compromising their music and touring hard around the world. We adopted that mentality early on and it’s kept us going for almost a quarter century. We love what we do, and we will keep on doing it.”

Joining Trevor, guitarist Buz McGrath and longtime bassist Chris O’Toole on the road is not only new guitarist Peter Layman (ex-APIARY),who played with UNEARTH before, but also drummer Mike Justian, long considered an integral part of UNEARTH‘s halcyon days.

Mike‘s live performance and presence are unmatched, and we couldn’t be happier to have him back with us,” states Trevor. In the summer of 2022, with Justian and Layman, the band headed off to Europe for festivals and haven’t looked back since, with appearances at various U.S. festivals, a tour in Mexico to round out 2022, and upcoming world touring in 2023, with tours in Australia, Japan, Taiwan and Europe all on the docket in the first quarter of the new year.
