They've done so in the style of Tim Robinson

The Black Dahlia Murder appear to be teasing new music, which would mark the first material from the band since 2020.

Today, the Michigan melodeath vets teased the arrival of something new on June 13, complete with a short video of Brian Eschbach testing a microphone by channelling Tim Robinson's extremely pressed character from I Think You Should Leave Season 3's "Drive-Thru Pay It Forward" sketch. You can begin building anticipation below.

The Black Dahlia Murder's new material will be their first since 2020 album Verminous and the 2022 passing of vocalist Trevor Strnad.

Eschbach, who played rhythm guitar in the band since their inception, announced his move to vocals that year, telling Decibel magazine, "I know Trevor would keep this band going if I went down a deep, dark path and weren't here."

He added, "I can't go out there and do Trevor's voice or try to be him. I can only execute the music of the Black Dahlia Murder with respect and try to do it the most justice I can. I've heard Trevor perform more than anyone else alive."

To fill Eschbach's rhythm guitar post, former lead guitarist Ryan Knight rejoined the outfit, meaning the group's forthcoming LP will be their first with Knight in the fold since 2015's Abysmal.

Last year saw the Black Dahlia Murder embark on their first North American tour since Strnad's death. The band have mapped out a European tour for summer 2024, and you can find those dates via their official website.
