Disciples of Babylon have released Freedom, the first single from their forthcoming album The Rise and Fall of Babylon! The new single is now available to all fans who pre-order the album. The lead single Without You will be released the week of July 24th with and official & lyric videos soon to follow. The album was helmed by Grammy winner Andres Torres (Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, Alejandro Sanz), mixed by Grammy winner Curt Schneider (Augustana, Richie Sambora, Joe Bonamassa), and mastered by Dave Kutch (Bruno Mars, The Strokes, Outkast, Joe Perry). “These are precarious times we live in, The Rise and Fall of Babylon signifies something that I feel has been a long time coming,” says frontman Eric Knight. “Babylon, meaning our country (the USA) is slowly spinning out of control and entering into vast turmoil, I feel we are at the beginnings of a revolution one of which the likes we’ve never seen before. As a nation, we are no longer viewed in the regard we once were. The title reflects this shift and quite possibly a prelude of what’s to come.”
