THE CONCEPT OF THE NEW ALBUM
Thematically, the album is linked to the “The Gates Are Open” album and shifts its apocalyptical topic even further. While the debut only had a vision of apocalypse and felt it approach hearing the message that nothing stands in its way (the gates are open), the new album is contemplating its triggering. What was about to come in the first album is now happening. In real time, we can see increasing chaos in the state, on the streets, and even in the heads of people regularly lubricated by the media. The raging chaos is a tool, side effect and also the essence of apocalypse that has just started and that will be the last thing humanity will experience. We have just entered the last era!
Liberty Lies reveal new song
About the new single, drummer Adam Stevens said, "This is our heaviest song to date, and the one that we are most proud of. We've managed to find the sound that we have been trying to capture for years. The song was born out of frustration in the practice room and with the industry itself."
Shark Infested Daughters announce album details and tour dates
"These Tides, Our Tombs" is a project that has been in the works for the last two years. Our entire goal was to create an album that challenged all of us musically plus would break down the genre walls placed upon us by our previous releases. On a lyrical standpoint, the album is an emotional roller coaster touching on subjects such as loss, suicide and depression. "These Tides" symbolizes the negativity that surrounds us; "Our Tombs" symbolizes how we choose to deal with them. It's either sink or swim. We hope the fans will feel the same raw emotion we put into writing this record."

"It is a great Day for us, after 3 years of a long work We finally released the first song of our new album "Candyland" out on October 14 th via Scarlet records. We decided not to publish anything before cause We wanted to give to our fans a direct messgage, a new strong sound together with the images of the new video " Morgana effect". The video is directed by Luca Cavallari (that is also our great photographer) that become mad during the shooting to coordinate all of us.. (We Are not so quiet!) and Edited by our producer Christian Ice (which is crazy by himself so no problem). We had also some special actors like Sara and Federico, the 2 scary children, the sweet and evil witch Nicole Zuppardi and Billy T Cooper, singer of the band JTR SICKERT as the black angel. 2 different locations, a great Make up team directed by Gianluca Terracina and our personal best fashion designer Diktator. All of them helped us to realize "Morgana Effect" in the best way! We Are thinking already about the next one...so more news will come soon!"

Chariots of the Gods reveal new video
The band had this to say about the video:
"It's been more than 3 years since our first official music video for the song 'Tides of War' was released. A lot has changed since then, sand it's time to reveal our first music video 'Tusk' in support of our new record. It was great to have Renaud Jobin, our former vocalist, directing the project and working together again. He has a clear understanding of what the band is about and what we wanted to achieve. We’re really happy with the outcome and can’t wait to do more videos for 'Ages Unsung'".
