Legendary American Thrash Metallers Sacred Reich have finished recording their highly anticipated new studio album – a first in 23 years – entitled “Awakening” and is due for release this summer.

In the meantime, Sacred Reich have digitally released a standalone track ‘Don’t Do It Donnie,’ which will only be available physically as part of the limited edition split-7″ with Iron Reagan.

Comments Phil Rind:

“We are stoked to do a split with Iron Reagan. When we began as a band in 1986 we were influenced lyrically by punk bands and the Reagan era. This is a great way to get back to our roots. The song is a heavy and cheeky middle finger to the politics of today. You’d think we’d have learned by now. There is a reason our first record is called ‘Ignorance’.”

Iron Reagan are participating with the exclusive song ‘They Scream’. There will only be 1000 black copies available of the 7″ which you can pre-order here or from the Metal Blade ebay-store!

The new Sacred Reich album “Awakening” has been recorded with producer Arthur Rizk and engineer John Aquilino at The Platinum Underground in Arizona. Mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering, CA.

Sacred Reich will be hitting the road in May to tour across North America.
