It's time to add to the summer release calendar as Shattered Sun are on their way back with new music. The band just announced that their sophomore set will be titled The Evolution of Anger and they've also unleashed a new video for the song "Burn It Down."

The rising rockers settled into the studio with producer Mark Lewis earlier this year. Lewis, who has previously worked with DevilDriver and Fallujah, definitely had an impact on the band. “Mark brought a sound to the band that we didn’t think we were capable of,” says guitarist Jessie Santos. You can check out the track listing for the album below and look for the disc arriving via Victory Records on July 21. Pre-orders are being taken here.

As for the song, there's some serious low end pummeling going on. “People are fed up and I am certainly fed up,” says singer Marcos Leal, reacting to the worldwide state of affairs. The singer continues, “We almost burned this band into the ground internally.” Guitarist Daniel Trejo decided to leave the band in late 2015, and internal issues began to surface before the band worked them out and Trejo returned. “Between all the things we have done over the years, things finally came to the surface. Once Daniel came back into the fold, the first song he showed me was 'Burn it Down,' and it is a perfect reflection of what occurred within Shattered Sun." You can watch the Dustin Smith-directed video for "Burn It Down" above.

Meanwhile, you can look for Shattered Sun playing select shows on the Vans Warped Tour this summer. See the dates below, and stay tuned for a fall tour announcement coming soon.
