Eighteen Visions, ‘Crucified’ – Exclusive Song Premiere

Subscribe to Loudwire on

Consider this your warning: Eighteen Visions are back after a decade away and they’re ready to rock you hard! The band is teaming up with Loudwire to bring you the exclusive premiere of “Crucified,” the opening song on their upcoming album XVIII.

You can just feel the tension build as it sounds like beehive swarm intensifying until vocalist James Hart delivers an almost cathartic scream. It’s a primal and welcome return for Eighteen Visions.

“At the point when this track came together, we had about six songs completed and everything was just super heavy,” guitarist Keith Barney tells us. “Musically, I was feeling like we really needed something super-fast and totally unexpected. We hadn’t written anything that fast since the Vanity record, I think. The breakdown ended up being the first little teaser for the record on our Instagram and everyone lost their s–t. So we’re super psyched to have everyone hear the entire thing now.”

Eighteen Visions played what many thought would be their final show at the Chain Reaction in Orange County a decade ago. A decade later, the group, which is now a trio, will issue XVIII on June 2. You can pre-order the album at this location. And look for Eighteen Visions playing their first show in 10 years at The Observatory in Orange County, Calif., on June 2.
