LA Album Release Party Announced

SACRED REICH have dropped a brand new track, "Manifest Reality", today along with accompanying music video directed by acclaimed director Mark Pellington (U2, FOO FIGHTERS, PEARL JAM, PUBLIC ENEMY). "Manifest Reality" is the second single to drop from SACRED REICH's upcoming album and first new music in 23 years, Awakening, which drops on August 23rd via Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders are available now from metalblade.com/sacredreich. Watch the video for "Manifest Reality" on KNAC.COM HERE.

Speaking on the track and its accompanying video, frontman and bassist Phil Rind says: ""Manifest Reality" is about overcoming mental obstacles and becoming the change we want to see in the world. No one is coming to save us. It's up to us. The song is very positive and encouraging.

The video directed by the supremely talented Mark Pellington, shot by the incredible Ann Evelyn Lawford and talented corps of dancers choreographed by Nina McNeely presents a dichotomy. It shows the struggle we face day to day, moment to moment in overcoming the habits we have created that hold us back. The conflict between our best and worst instincts. Releasing grief and overcoming isolation. The yearning for something better."

To celebrate the release of Awakening, SACRED REICH will be hosting an album launch party on release day (Friday, August 23rd) at True Tattoo in Hollywood, CA. The private album launch party will take place from 9pm - 11pm. The band will be in attendance and the event will be hosted by LA legend Metal DJ Will of KNAC.COM. The first 50 fans to sign up have a chance to attend; submit your entry now here: https://smarturl.it/awakening-party

Twenty-three years after dropping their last full-length, SACRED REICH are returning in force with the towering Awakening. The new album showcases everything a fan would expect and hope for from the Phoenix, Arizona crew, it is a timeless collection comprised of blistering thrash, crushing grooves, killer solos and socially conscious lyrics that demonstrate a true understanding of everything that matters most in the world today. The return of Dave McClain, who manned the drum throne from 1991 to 1997, and the addition of 22 year old Joey Radziwill playing guitar, alongside original members guitarist Wiley Arnett and vocalist/bassist Phil Rind are integral facets of the record. Speaking on this current line-up of SACRED REICH, Phil Rind says: "Dave is such a killer drummer and person. He works every day to become a better drummer, and I mean every day. His work ethic is inspiring. As much as he has accomplished, he is still open to what comes. Joey brings a higher level of musicianship and tightness to our band, and he brings a freshness to us. He gives us an opportunity for us to see things from a different perspective, and all of us were blown away by what he can do with a guitar and how effortlessly he does it."

To track the album, the band headed into Platinum Underground in Mesa, AZ, and employed producer Arthur Rizk (POWER TRIP, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY) and engineer John Aquilino. The album was mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering, CA. Speaking on his band's long awaited new album, Rind adds: "Going into it, we had a loose idea as far as knowing that we wanted some fast, heavy songs to honor the old school fans that have supported us and gotten us to this point. We wanted everything to happen naturally. We didn't want to force anything and we are super stoked with every song. It is easily the best thing we have ever done. Regardless of what happens with the record, the experience of making it was enough to satisfy us. Obviously we hope people like it, but even if it tanked, it could not change the way we feel about it. We know what we did."
