New Album Memorial Out September 1

SOEN have released the piercing new single, "Violence", which is taken from their forthcoming album Memorial, set for release on September 1 via Silver Lining Music. It will be available as a Deluxe CD, 12" Vinyl Album in Black and color variants, digital formats and special D2C products and bundles.

Founding member and singer Joel Ekelof comments, ""Violence" touches the topic of coercion, whether it is physical or mental. Violence can sometimes be delivered very cautiously in ways that don't give room for a reaction, but with the passing of time will destroy your confidence and self-regard."

The new track is as biting and abrasive as its theme along with a melodic grace that transcends across the whole of the new album.

"It's a different song for us musically speaking, it's very direct and full of darkness and anger." Adds co-founding member and drummer Martin Lopez.

Watch/Listen to "Violence" on KNAC.COM HERE; video concept and story by TERRA (www.welcometoterra.com). The new single follows the release of the ferocious war inspired title track "Memorial" and the hard hitting "Unbreakable".

Never ones to take the restrained path, SOEN face down the ills and ways of current society with a crisp, wounded venom that betrays their pain, anger and frustrations. Each guitar carries a greater serrated edge, each melody a richer heart, each lyric a soul and spleen venting definitive proclamation. At the same time, Soen's unique blend of progression, aggression, and beauty shows more maturity than ever before.

SOEN have been building up to this moment for years and now they're here with Memorial, which is an inspiring modern hard rock classic.

Following their incredible performances at this year's summer festivals across Europe, SOEN, completed by Lars Enok Ahlund (Keyboards and Guitar), Oleksii 'Zlatoyar' Kobel (Bass) and Cody Ford (Lead Guitar), will be heading out on their Memorial European tour, which will kick off in September in Odense, Denmark.

Today the band are excited to announce twenty-five new dates seeing them bring Memorial to the United States, Canada and Mexico. The tour will kick-off in May 2024 in Chicago, Illinois.
