Oklahoma natives and saviours of Southern-infused Hard Rock Anti-Motrem are set to release their new album 'New Southern' on Monday 28th April via Nuclear Blast.

The album, was produced, recorded, and mixed by the esteemed Bob Marlette (Black Stone Cherry, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Rob Zombie) and will be available in both physical formats and as a digital download.

The first single from the album, '100% Pure American Rage' is currently available to buy via iTunes now and you can see the official video which was shot, produced and directed by Clark Deal of Chaotic Productions below.

Talking of the album, front man Larado Romo commented "Hard Rock is stagnating and we want people to think, 'Rock has balls again!' When you see us live, you will be crushed!"

"(The album) is brutal but accessible" continues guitarist Zain Smith adding that it's "very political but the solos are tasty. It's new-day metal, but it has a Led Zeppelin-esque guitar tone and solo. There's nothing that sounds like this song out there".

Formed around 2008 in Chickasha, Oklahoma, the band are fronted by vocalist Larado Romo, and played over three hundred live shows already. All aged between 18 and 22, they spent their formative nights and weekends 'woodshedding' their sound on the concert stage they built themselves in a barn owned by the family of guitarist Zain Smith.

The band have turned the barn rehearsal space into a makeshift venue and honed their chops by inviting friends and family over for an afternoon of gravel-throated vocals, crunch-laden riffs, thick grooves, and some good ol'-fashioned Southern hospitality.
