Liverpool folk/black metallers Dawn Ray'd are releasing their new album Behold Sedition Plainsong on October 25th via Prosthetic Records, and it seems like the political band's message will be just as strong as ever on this one. A press release calls it "a call to arms and a potential catalyst for positive radical change," and then continues:

The first audio from the album [comes] in the form of the evocative album intro, "Raise The Flails", with its rallying cry -‘It’s time for new tales of resistance’. Behold Sedition Plainsong comprises of 11 tracks of what will surely become their trademark sound: pure black metal, shot through with sonic flecks of traditional folk. Each song is an emotional response to a political struggle, with a clear focus on ecological destruction and anti-capitalism.

You can listen to "Raise The Flails," which is clearly just an intro-type song but already sounds promising, below. Dawn Ray'd are also touring the UK and Europe, including a trek with False, and those dates are listed below too.
