Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, lead singer of the ontologically-focused, transcendental black metal band Liturgy, will be playing his headstock-less guitar in a new band Survival, who will release their debut self-titled album on May 14th through Thrill Jockey Records. The band consists of Hunt-Hendrix, Greg Smith, and Jeff Bobula, with some help in the studio from Colin Marston (Krallice, Dysrhythmia).

The group’s first single, “Tragedy of the Mind” is a good bridge away from the pure trance of Liturgy and into the more repetitive, riff-based ’70s Brit-metal of Survival, with Hendrix sounding more like a timid Layne Staley (Alice In Chains) than his erstwhile black metal howls. Check out the track below.

According to a press release, the band will be touring the U.S. this summer, while Liturgy remains in the process of recording material that should see the light of day this fall.
