He Is Legend Release ‘Boogiewoman,’ Announce New Album
Before the end of 2018, He Is Legend gave fans something to look forward to, releasing the "White Bat" single. The rest of the details are finally here with sixth album, White Bat, set for a summer release. They've also shared the new track, "Boogiewoman."
This should be a fun one live with head-bobbing, chugging grooves that alternate between thumping, stuttered rhythms and more fluid, bluesy riffs.
"White Bat is the purest, most passionate, and the most united He is Legend has been since we wrote It Hates You. I think this album has something for every fan of each chapter in our history," says singer Schuylar Croom.
The album was inspired by Michelle McNamara’s true crime book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. Croom embraced a dark mindset, visiting the grave of Walt Disney, hitting up mausoleums and visiting the Museum of Death. The singer "sat in crazy seedy little bars, wrote, and got into this headspace—like preparing for an acting role."
Croom added that the record "has a moodiness and heaviness we haven't ventured into in a while," continuing, "It's conceptual. More than the content and concept, the music is representative of what we are now."
White Bat will be released on June 28 through Spinefarm Records. Pre-order your copy here and check out the album art, track listing and "Boogiewoman" single below.
