Parisian modern metallers As They Burn have announced that their forthcoming album will be titled “Will, Love, Life” and is due out February 19th, 2013. A teaser trailer is available below, and pre-orders are live now at this location.

Vcalist Kevin Trevor comments: “Our new effort is on its way and is in the mixing process with Jason Suecof. We are really glad about how the album sounds and we hope that you will love and respect it as much as us. Will, Love Life is heavier, more mature, atmospheric and darker than our previous album, but also very positive and still full of symbolism.”

Machinist Bastien Jacquesson also issued the following statement about the artwork: “The pyramid on the cover is a mystical sign, a sign of spiritual elevation and knowledge. It is also linked with Aleister Crowley and the Thelema mythology which always been a big influence for us. The cover art photo was taken by our great friend Anthony Dubois who’s also known as Meshuggah’s official photographer and French painter Charlotte Mollet drew each of the eleven signs that represent the eleven tracks of the record. Each symbol has a special meaning linked with the song’s lyrics.”

Fans can catch As They Burn on tour with Betraying the Martyrs in February throughout Europe before joining Job For A Cowboy, War From A Harlots Mouth, and Beneath the Massacre on Bonecrusher Fest in Europe beginning March 1st.
