Blackguard has been talking about their new record Storm ever since 2012, mostly with status updates and promising a release date soon. Recently, they announced they'll be releasing it on April 12 and they'll be playing their first show in over four years at the Coalition in Toronto, ON on March 22 with Crimson Shadows and Borealis.
You can now stream a new single from Blackguard called "By My Hand," which features Kittie frontwoman and guitarist Morgan Lander.
“This has a been a very long time coming, but we’re all elated to finally share with you our first single from ‘Storm‘. We have no shame in saying this album is by far our best/heaviest/fastest/bla bla bla, you’ve heard it all before, but sooner than later everyone is going to know why we feel this way. We’d like to send a huge thank you to Morgan Lander of Kittie for doing an amazing job on the chorus of this song, hopefully, she can make it out to a show or two to perform it with us.”
