Colorado-based thrashers HAVOK are back! On the heels of the announcement about the new album V (scheduled for release worldwide on May 1, 2020 via Century Media Records), the band has dropped a video for the debut single “Phantom Force”. The video, complete with a seizure warning, is a sensory barrage of visuals that matches the punishing sound HAVOK is known for and was directed by K. Hunter Lamar/Digital Myle. “Phantom Force” can be seen on KNAC.COM HERE.

HAVOK lead guitarist Reece Scruggs commented about the song: “Somewhere in the middle of writing V we all came together and made the decision that we needed a full-blown face peeler track. I remember David saying, ‘"Reign In Blood" tempo,’ so I came up with something almost immediately and sent it over to the guys. And aside from some subtle stylistic details, it stayed pretty true to that original concept. "Phantom Force" as a first single will assure our fans and skeptics that we haven’t lost a step in making vicious, straight forward, non-gimmicked heavy metal.”

And HAVOK guitarist/vocalist David Sanchez added the following about the lyrics of the track: ""Phantom Force" is about the mysterious deaths that happen during sleep paralysis in the Hmong people. These people fled their war-torn homeland and could not seem to escape a terrifying fate. The goal with this video was to visually represent the fear and panic that people must've felt just before their sudden nocturnal demise. Watch at your own risk...”

The track has now also been added to the “Thrashers” playlist on Spotify, which features HAVOK on its cover: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37i9dQZF1DWZdFtcHGe8ED.

V, HAVOK’s 5th studio album and relentless follow-up to 2017’s Conformicide effort, was engineered, mixed, mastered by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder) and showcases stunning artwork by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Hatebreed). V will be available as limited edition Digipak CD and as LP on 180gr. vinyl with poster.
