American hardcore punk band, Rotting Out, have announced the release of their third full-length album, ‘Ronin,’ which will be released on April 10th via Pure Noise Records. Today, the band has released a new single off of the forthcoming album, ‘Unforgiven,’ which follows the release of their single, ‘Reaper’ which was released last year, both of which will be featured on the album.
On the forthcoming album, lead vocalist Walter Delgado shares: “It’s been 7 years since our last LP. A lot has happened since: hard lessons, periods of isolation, weight of guilt, diagnosis, crippling realization, absolute hopelessness and also absolute peace and calmness. The purpose for the image of the record is that there was a lot that was left unspoken and I danced around the darker moments and some were just buried completely. I decided to reopen things that haven’t been open in almost 25 years and look it straight in the face. That old dusty mirror that shows me more than I’d like to see or remember. I’ve never been more proud of writing this record and nothing was left behind on my end. Some of these took more out of me than I’d like to admit. Nonetheless, I knew it was time to put it all out there.”
He continues about the single: “’Unforgiven’ was everything imprinted on me as a child from abusive parent. Made to believe every bad experience was my own fault and unable to forgive myself for situations that were not only not my fault but far beyond my control. Now as an adult I try undo and forgive myself for things I never even did, apologizing for the actions of ghosts, feeling stuck like there’s no way out completely exhausted by guilt that doesn’t belong to me.”
