LYBICA - Featuring Killswitch Engage Drummer Justin Foley on Guitar, Announce Self-Titled Debut Album

Lybica, a dynamic and instrumental band from South Florida that seamlessly blends flavorful guitar melody with powerful metallic crunch and which features Killswitch Engage drummer Justin Foley on guitar, have announced their self-titled debut. It arrives September 16 via Metal Blade Records. Pre-order at:

The band has dropped the video for the new single "Manifest." Watch it below!

The video was directed by Maria Jazel of Black Card Films, who also directed the video for the previously released track "Palatial."

"I'm thrilled to announce that our debut record will be out September 16 on freaking Metal Blade," says Foley. "It's fitting to share 'Manifest' today, as well, since it was the first song Doug [French, bass], Joey [Johnson, guitar], and I played together a few years back. Now that [drummer] Chris [Lane] has completed the band, it's time for some shows."

Foley continues, "Fellow Floridians can see us at Respectable Street in West Palm on August 5, and also at Fest (!!) in Gainesville, with about 200 of your favorite bands. I also suckered the KsE guys into letting us play with them in Albany on September 22, just a week after Lybica's record comes out. We can't wait to see where this band takes us, and we're excited to get things started!"
