VIRGIN STEELE will release their new album this summer on SPV/Steamhammer. The title has been changed to Nocturnes Of Hellfire & Damnation and the album will now have three different versions of the cover art. Front man David Defeis speaks on the new album:

"Our new album which is called NOCTURNES OF HELLFIRE & DAMNATION is not a concept album per se, but there is a through line that connects the tracks. The lyrics essentially deal with relationship issues and by that I mean.... the connections between entities.... as in all sorts of beings, not only human beings...but also Gods & Goddesses, Spirits, Elements, or whatever, plus various creatures, animal, vegetable and or mineral, but largely the album is about connections between people. People and their belief systems, people and their Gods or Goddesses...people and their life philosophies and also the various substances we invest or inject into our daily or nightly rituals and our worldview, and all the complexities of what drives us, makes us who we are and takes us where we may...or may not be going. To sum it up this album is about.... all the various ways in which humans can entangle themselves, or destroy themselves...so the album's title essentially encompasses what the vibe of the whole Work is about. The title relates to the album in the way that the title NOBLE SAVAGE or AGE OF CONSENT expressed each of those particular Works. The title provides a framework and connective tissue, but each song is really its own thing.

Musically the album is pretty heavy, high energy, often dark, at turns melancholy, and at turns aggressive or angry sounding. It does have that over the top bombastic heaviness that we are about, and the whole Barbaric-Romantic thing that we are known for. The overarching theme that comes to mind when I think about the album or listen to it is passion...raw passion. There are big monolithic riffs, moody chord changes, "classical" type bits, sort of Bluesy moments.... it retains the VIRGIN STEELE signature, but it adds new dimensions to it. In a strange way it "feels" to me like it could have been the album we might have made to follow up NOBLE SAVAGE, had I been able to devote all my energies into the more bombastic or progressive side of my musical nature at that time, rather than trying to appease some of the other "factions" around me who wanted some kind of a "hit"...whatever that meant at the time. So to conclude...we have infused the recordings with all that we have gone through over these past months, every fiber of our being...and I think this album will be something our Fans will really enjoy!"

SPV / Steamhammer will release the new studio album on June 17th in Scandinavia, June 19th in Germany, June 22nd in Europe and June 23rd in the USA.

It will come out with three different covers as a standard 1CD version (the gargoyle cover), 2CD digipak version (the angel cover), 2 LP gatefold version (the flute playing skeleton cover) and download.
