Sylosis have finally returned from hiatus with the ripping new track “I Sever.” The single is from the band’s new album, Cycle of Suffering, which will drop in 2020.

It’s been a long damn time, but Sylosis will break a five-year dry spell with Cycle of Suffering. “I Sever” is a viciously solid track, tastefully placing melodic guitar work over an infectious group of verses. The song takes a more anthemic turn during its outro, completing an incredible revival bound to become a modern classic.

2020 will also see Sylosis return to the road, performing their first gig in nearly half a decade at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on Feb. 13.

“I want to thank all of our fans for their patience and support over these last few years. Cycle of Suffering is dedicated to them,” frontman Josh Middleton posted on Facebook. “With this new chapter, we close another; I’d like to thank Carl Parnell for his time in Sylosis. Many great memories made with him and I wish him the best in his career. Now we welcome Conor Marshall to Sylosis! Another man in another band (Conjurer) - Conor is an amazing player and compliments what we do really well. A warm welcome planned for 13th February where we play our first show in over 4 years! We’re excited and focussed – see you in 2020!”

Cycle of Suffering was produced and mixed by Middleton, who also created the painting which adorns the new album’s cover. Cycle of Suffering will be released Feb. 7 via Nuclear Blast Records. To pre-order the album, click here.
