Boston hardcore act Defeater have just announced they will release their fourth studio album, ‘Abandoned‘, on August 28 via Epitaph Records.

In the build up to this release, the guys have revealed the official video for ‘Spared In Hell‘!

Watch it here:

Unlike most bands—and especially most hardcore bands— Defeater don’t write songs so much as they write histories, and specifically the history of a never-named New Jersey family whose already troubled lives disintegrate into torment, rendered all the more tragic for the depth and detail of singer Derek Archambault’s lyrics. ‘Abandoned‘ was recorded earlier this year at guitarist Jay Maas’ studio and it is the most relentlessly raw and uncompromising chapter so far, powered by a renewed sense of artistic ambition and a plot twist no one could have expected.

Archambault states:
“One of the threads running through this record is how people sometimes look for the answers to their problems in the darkest places.”

Pre-orders for ‘Abandoned‘ are available at:

Defeater is touring in the UK and mainland Europe at the moment and will return on the Impericon Never Say Die! Tour this fall in support of the new album.
