Allegaeon is back with a new single “Iridescent” that goes hard on the glizzies (or the hot dogs, for those unfamiliar with the term). “Iridescent” features a video by Digital Myle, while the song itself is from Allegaeon‘s recently-finished sessions for their seventh studio album with longtime producer Dave Otero (Flatline Audio).

“Originally recorded during the same session as our last single, ‘Inhumation,’ we wanted to release ‘Iridescent’ to give our fans a little love before we full send our next album cycle,” said recently-returned Allegaeon vocalist Ezra Haynes. “This stand-alone single was cut from the very cloth of Allegaeon‘s Elements Of The Infinite era. Perfect timing too, as we’re about to head out on the North American leg of the Cancer Culture Tour with Decapitated, Septicflesh, and Kataklysm this April.

“It will be very cool to see how the newer material is received. Here we are, just about ten years from when we released the song ‘1.618.’ We still get asked to this very day about our wheel of subgenres, or, ‘Where’s the crab?’ I’m really looking forward to the next ten-plus years of glizzies.”

Added guitarist Greg Burgess: “The music for ‘Iridescent’ spawned from my excitement of working with Ezra again. We had been throwing ideas back and forth, rekindling our writing chemistry, and this song just seemed to write itself. The accompanying video’s subject matter evolved much like our video for ‘1.618.’ Five guys sat around talking about stupid things until we started laughing. Then the question was posed… ‘What if?’ Anyway, I hope people like hotdogs and stupid videos.”
