Whitechapel have just announced the details for their forthcoming self-titled fourth album. The record is slated for a June 19 release date via Metal Blade Records. Check out the album's first single, tracklisting and album art below.

Having spent several years lauded as one of the frontrunners in their genre, in 2012 Whitechapel stand as a defining force in contemporary heavy music. Building dramatically on the trademarked bludgeon of their first three releases, with Whitechapel the Tennessean sextet have inarguably delivered their most intense, dynamic, and downright hostile record to date. Drenched in atmospheric darkness, the record is also rife with gripping melodies that drag the listener in to the tumult, willing or otherwise, and across its ten tracks it is infused with an emotional depth that pointedly separates the band from the plethora of two-dimensional mosh-starters that have sprung up in their wake.

Whitechapel tracklisting:

1) Make it Bleed

2) Hate Creation

3) (Cult)uralist

4) I, Dementia

5) Section 8

6) Faces

7) Dead Silence

8) The Night Remains

9) Devoid

10) Possibilities of an Impossible Existence

The album was engineered and mixed by Mark Lewis (Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver), who also handled production duties alongside the band. The album artwork was created by Aaron Marsh of Forefathers Group with art direction provided by Whitechapel.
