San Francisco prog metallers Fallujah have announced a new edition of their breakthrough album ‘The Flesh Prevails’ to commemorate its 10th anniversary. When it originally dropped in 2014, this album changed the game not only for Fallujah, but for technical progressive death metal as we know it. Originally a deathcore act, this lot moved into a sharp, aggressive tech-death direction with ‘The Flesh Prevails’, which opened the doors for albums like 2016’s sublime ‘Dreamless’ and 2022’s career-defining ‘Empyrean’. This new edition of ‘The Flesh Prevails’ will be remixed and remastered by Zack Ohren and will be released on July 5th via Unique Leader Records. To further celebrate this milestone, the band has also announced the massive, 30-date The Flesh Prevails 10th Anniversary North American Tour this summer featuring support from Persefone, Vulvodynia, and Dawn of Ouroboros.

Jamie Graham of Unique Leader Records reflects on the album’s impact: “‘The Flesh Prevails’ shook the Technical Death Metal world by storm on its initial 2014 release and remains one of the most revered albums in our catalogue. Fallujah’s pioneering hybrid of ethereal, epic soundscapes weaved into their intricacies created a record that stood alone as a supreme body of work. 10 years on, the record feels fresher and more essential than ever. A remaster from the golden ears of Zack Ohren took this superb album to an even higher level.”

Fallujah share: “This summer we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of our sophomore album ‘The Flesh Prevails’. We will be performing the album in its entirety, featuring songs that have never before been played live. Joining us are torch-bearers of atmospheric prog Persefone, South African slam lords Vulvodynia, and the ever-ethereal Dawn of Ouroboros; we couldn’t ask for a better way to welcome another decade of Fallujah.”

The Flesh Prevails 10th Anniversary Tour will hit the road on Friday, July 5th in Atlanta, GA and will hit a further 28 cities across North America before culminating In Nashville, TN on August 3rd.
