Failure haven’t released an album since 1996, when Fantastic Planet dropped, and the band broke up a year later. This decade has wrought a series of revivals, as guitar-driven rock undergoes an unpredicted, though not unwelcome, renaissance of sorts. In February, Swervedriver dropped their reunion album I Wasn’t Born To Lose You, and just yesterday we heard an early stream of Refused’s first record in 17 years. Now Failure are back with The Heart Is A Monster. For those who kneel at the altar of alt-rock’s blackened underbelly, this is a pretty big deal. We’ve already heard two of the album’s singles — “Mulholland Drive” and “Hot Traveller” — but now you can stream the work in its entirety below.
The Heart Is A Monster is out 6/30 via INgrooves’ INresidence label.
