Roman trio ZU are gearing up to release their first full-length album since 2009's Carboniferous and tQ are very happy to be offering you the first chance to stream the album's title track ahead of it hitting shelves on March 23. You can check out 'Cortar Todo' above.

The album will see the band return to Ipecac Recordings who put out their last full-length and follows last year's Goodnight Civilization EP which was their first release since returning from a three-year hiatus and the debut of a new line-up which saw Gabe Serbian, best known as the drummer for the Californian band The Locust, coming into the fold. Cortar Todo was recorded in the countryside near Bologna in Italy last summer and is said to be "more direct, sharp, focussed, and more intense and musical than anything we have heard from ZU so far". Tour dates are also on the horizon so keep your eyes peeled to find out about those when they are announced, and listen to the previously-revealed 'Rudra Dances Over Burning Rome' from the album below:
