WHITECHAPEL Premiere Lyric Video For Title Track “Our Endless War” on Artist Direct

New Album Our Endless War Available April 29th on Metal Blade Records The anticipation continues to build as the release date of WHITECHAPEL‘s new album Our Endless War draws nearer. In a little less then three weeks on April 29th the band’s fifth full-length record and fourth for Metal Blade Records will be released.

During the recording of Our Endless War the band shot a series of behind the scenes and in-studio videos documenting the process. Today the second video from the recording sessions has been posted. This episode focuses on the tracking sessions for the album. It showcases each member sharing their part in tracking the riffs that made up the album and can be viewed HERE.
