(San Diego, CA) - Cattle Decapitation released a track off of their new full-length, "The Anthropocene Extinction" today at Revolver Magazine. The song, entitled, "Mammals In Babylon", is available for streaming here.

"The Anthropocene Extinction" was recorded by Dave Otero (Allegaeon, Cephalic Carnage) and is slated for release August 7th, 2015 through Metal Blade Records.

""Mammals In Babylon" was one of the earliest songs written for the new album", said Cattle Decapitation guitarist Josh Elmore. "At that time, we had completed several other tunes that fell more on the epic side of our writing style. As a foil to that strategy, "Mammals" came about based upon a desire to concoct a no-BS, straight-forward ripper. Blending a brutal death metal assault with groovier passages that leads into a bleak, yet triumphant chorus, "Mammals" has a pounding quality that gives way to a buzz-sawing completion. All the while (vocalist) Travis' (Ryan) lyrics frame humanity's infancy in paradise and our evolution to 'maturity,' which now finds us dwelling in a wasteland of our own creation. We invite you to take a listen to the next track from "The Anthropocene Extinction"."

Cattle Decapitation also announced they will tour this summer; show dates include performances at the annual Summer Slaughter Tour, an appearance at Bay Area Death Fest on Jul 10th, 2015, and a CD-release show July 11th in San Diego, CA.
