AVOID announce new album ‘Cult Mentality,’ share video for new song “My World”

Seattle's AVOID have announced their sophomore album, Cult Mentality, due October 14 via Thriller Records. It features recent singles "Cowabunga" (one of the most fun post-hardcore songs of the year so far) and "Split (Kill It)," as well as the just-released third single, "My World." This one goes in a different direction than the last two, with an industrial metal vibe that's at least a little like Linkin Park. Vocalist Benny Scholl says:

We’re so stoked to share this track with y’all. From the second we started writing it this has been one we’ve been excited about it. It’s a song to turn up loud and say “fuck it” to anything getting you down. In my humble opinion, it also shows off every side of the band and gives you a taste of a little bit of everything that’s coming with future releases. Blast this shit, and welcome to My World.

AVOID are also gearing up to open Northlane's tour, alongside Silent Planet and Loathe, and that tour hits NYC's Irving Plaza on July 31. All dates are listed below.
