Swedish death metallers HYPOCRISY will return to North America once again this May for a headlining tour in support of their upcoming album, "End Of Disclosure". Joining them will be Brazilian brothers in death KRISIUN, Belgian gore-grinders ABORTED, and technical-melodic-death-masters ARSIS. AUTUMN'S END and STARKILL will provide additional support on select shows.
Commented HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tägtgren: "It's going to be great to come back again! Don't worry — it won’t be any visa problems this time either, as I stayed in New York City this summer. We're looking forward to bringing our stage set from Europe, plus playing a lot of new songs and old songs that we've either never played, or haven't played for years."

The video for "End Of Disclosure", the title track of the new album from HYPOCRISY, can be seen below. Due in Europe on March 22 via Nuclear Blast Records, the CD was produced by HYPOCRISY mastermind Peter Tägtgren at his Abyss Studio in Sweden. The artwork was created by Wes Benscoter (SLAYER, KREATOR, NILE, VADER).
A listening party for the new album took place on January 12 at Abyss Studios. A four-minute video clip shot at the event, featuring the first impressions of the international press, can be seen below.
"This time, I wanted to go back to the basics," says Peter. "[I] felt like we lost it for the last couple of albums. It's straight to the point. It's more HYPOCRISY than ever — the fast, the heavy, the epic. Enjoy!”
