Iowa hard rock heavyweights SAUL — brothers Blake Bedsaul [lead vocals] and Zach Bedsaul [lead guitar, backup vocals], William McIlravy [bass, backup vocals], and Myles Clayborne [drums] — have announced their new album THIS IS IT... THE END OF EVERYTHING. The album arrives July 28 via Spinefarm.

To herald the album's announcement, the band has shared the video for first single "A MILLION MILES". Watch it on KNAC.COM HERE.

"The distance between us is no longer measured in inches, feet, or miles," says Blake about the song. "It's the void in time between looking up from our screens and locked in a dream. A minimal space we keep for reality. Just a moment to see the difference of where we are, and where we want to be. We can sit across from someone within reach, and be a million miles away transported through our screens."

The album encompasses a similar theme. Blake shares, "As a whole, we're losing focus. I feel like the only one to look up and notice. Am I losing my mind or losing touch with the times? It's a game we can’t win when the rules always change. Marching toward the end of days. This is it… the end of everything."

The Iowa quartet continues to bring audiences together with a one-two punch of pummeling metallic grooves and towering melodies. Amassing tens of millions of streams and earning acclaim from Revolver, Guitar World, Loudwire, and many more, the group fortify an unbreakable bond with listeners on their second full-length offering, THIS IS IT…THE END OF EVERYTHING [Spinefarm]. For this record, the band collaborated with producer Kile Odell [Motionless In White, Nita Strauss].

"As a society, we're so glued to our phones and social media," notes Blake. "When we finally got out of quarantine, we personally needed to take a mental break from it. If you think about it, we don't even have to talk anymore, since communication happens online. So, step back from social media, get out there, shake hands, and live a little bit. You don't have to exist through your phone. Capture the moment in your head and tell the story out loud to someone."

SAUL emerged out of the Midwest in 2017 and tirelessly bulldozed a path to the forefront of modern rock. They notably performed alongside everyone from Motionless In White, Atreyu, August Burns Red, Crown The Empire, Bush, and 10 Years to HELLYEAH and Nonpoint in addition to gracing the stages of festivals, including Rebel Rock, Rock Fest, Rock USA, Inkcarceration, and Blue Ridge Rock Fest with Rob Zombie, Mudvayne and Slipknot. The group independently landed a bona fide hit in the form of "Brother" — an homage to the co-founders' late brother Caleb. It marked their first #1 on Sirius/XM Octane in addition to gathering over 9 million Spotify streams and paving the way for their 2020 full-length debut, Rise As Equals. Co-written with David Draiman of Disturbed, "King Of Misery" reeled in 3.7 million Spotify streams, while "Trial By Fire" also surpassed 3 million Spotify streams. Of the former, American Songwriter praised ""King of Misery" wasted no time jumping into the heavy mainstream riffs that SAUL set out to wrangle," and Outburn hailed its "futuristic and cinematic video."
