The wait is over, Four Year Strong fans. The hard rocking heroes are back with a pair of new tracks, teasing the forthcoming release of their Brain Pain album. You can see the video for "Talking Myself in Circles" and listen to the "Brain Pain" title track in the players below.

This marks the band's first new offerings since promotion of their 2015 self-titled album and it's the end of a lengthy creative journey for the band. The four-piece outfit started conceptualizing ideas for the new album two years ago and have spent the last year-plus putting the record together.

“We didn’t want to set a strict deadline for this album because we wanted to be sure we took the time to write the best songs possible. In the past our writing and recording was so dependent on getting something out in time to go on tour; this time we really had the opportunity to take our time and work through these ideas," state the group.

For the new album, the band called upon in demand producer Will Putney. “We were really emotionally invested in this music so we wanted to go with someone who we knew would care about it as much as we did and Will was that guy,” Alan Day says.

As for the music, Brain Pain serves up a more direct approach, carrying over cohesive themes throughout the songs. “I think that from a lyrical perspective this is the most thought we’ve ever put into a record,” Dan O' Connor explains.

"This is the most inspired, driven and focused we’ve ever been. Brain Pain is the record we always wanted to make and the record we always wanted you to hear," state the group via their social media.

The Brain Pain album is due Feb. 28. Pre-orders are currently being taken here. Check out the lyrics for "Talking Myself in Circles" and "Brain Pain" and the listen to the new tracks below.

"Talking Myself in Circles" Lyrics

Talk is cheap
You caught me on another losing streak
I wish you didn’t have to watch me bleed
As I pick up all the pieces that are left of me

Trying to look on the upside
but maybe I’m upside down

I tried to fill the space between us
when we were more than just a couple miles apart
Get a map, draw a line that connects You and I
And follow it to the end to start all over again

I keep repeating the same thing without any meaning
Just hoping that it takes me back to the beginning
I just keep talking myself in circles
Talking round and round in circles

What’s with the attitude
How about a little bit of gratitude?
Forgive my sweet and sour point of view
because I already know the truth of what you think of me

Trying to look on the Brightside
maybe I’m just burnt out

"Brain Pain" Lyrics

Watch me fail, watch me struggle
Creeping forward as straight as an arrow
Smash it all, catch me when I fall

Feel the rain, feel the thunder
All the chaos is dragging me under
Shoulder the blame, hang my head in shame

I wish that I could focus my hopeless wandering mind
I’m losing perspective, tearing out all my insides

Looking in from the outside

What’s the point? What’s the purpose?
All this attention is making me nervous
Clear the air, watch them disappear

Keep it simple, shake the doubt
Just surrender myself to the sound
Refuse to be a part of the great machine

I want to glow in the shadow
I want to shimmer enough to fade away

Smash it all, and catch me when I fall

Take me or leave me
Healthy or bleeding
Starve me or feed me
Pinch me, I’m dreaming
Smash it all, catch me when I fall
