New Jersey six-piece FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have just dropped the video for the title track from their upcoming fifth studio album, The Sea of Tragic Beasts. The album will be released on October 25 via Nuclear Blast Records worldwide and Human Warfare (AUS).
"We have to be these puffed up, aggressive people to survive in this world," said guitarist and producer Will Putney about the track. "It's dog eat dog shit out there. Lyrically, the song touches on that violent way of thinking, but it also shows the inherent sadness that comes along with a life of this nature. It's the two main themes that the subject matter on our album was born from, making it a fitting title track. Musically, I think it's a cool display of everything we do as a band — some classic metal foundations with some new tricks for us, and a fight riff for good measure. Hope you enjoy it!"

The Sea of Tragic Beasts was produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Putney at Graphic Nature Audio in New Jersey. The artwork for the album was created by Adam Burke.
