The album features original artwork from Polish illustrator Rafal Wechterowicz (Slayer, Mastodon) and was mastered by James Murphy (Aborted, World Under Blood, Abigail Williams). Lead single, “Give Me Liberty… Or Give Me Death,” is set to impact Loud Rock/Metal Radio May 27. The topical thrash anthem delivers the young band’s classic thrash and old school Metal sound.

HAVOK, called “the finest thrash band in existence” by PopDose, released their full-length debut, Burn, in 2009. Time Is Up would follow in 2011. “HAVOK have hit their stride,” said Decibel Magazine. “HAVOK is everything that is great about thrash,” added Terrorizer. In 2012, the band released their EP Point of No Return; videos for the EP’s two original songs were released earlier this year. The videos have had over 200,000 views since release. The band plans three new videos for Unnatural Selection; details forthcoming. Confirmed HAVOK dates at press time are included below. Watch their NEW video for "From Cradle To The Grave" HERE!
