Melodic hardcore legends Hopesfall have finally announced that their new album, Arbiter, will be released on July 13 via Equal Vision Records/Graphic Nature. It will be their first new album since 2007’s Magnetic North.

To celebrate the news, the band have released a new song called “H.A. Wallace Space Academy.” You can find the video at the top of the post.

“After Magnetic North, I felt like we left unfinished business on the table,” shares Hopesfall vocalist Jay Forrest. “I think Hopesfall has carried the underdog chip on our shoulder for the majority of our playing career. That’s given us an edge that has defined our music.”

He continues on: “Now, we’ve hunkered down and cast our antenna out to tap into this vast creative universe. We’re counting on the listener to complete the creative process and help decode the transmission. Barring World War III, I think this album will stand amongst our best.”

With Arbiter, Hopesfall are set to make their comeback and continue improving their legacy. You can pre-order the record here, and below you will find the album artwork and track-listing.

Hopesfall have no current tour plans announced, but are expected to do some select tour dates later this year.
