Billy Talent have revealed that their new studio album will be titled "Dead Silence". The album is the Canadian band's fourth effort as Billy Talent and their fifth effort of their career to date. It will be released on September 7 and has been produced by the band's guitarist Ian D'Sa. "Dead Silence" is the band's first album not to be self-titled, after they simply titled their previous efforts "Billy Talent", "Billy Talent II" and "Billy Talent III". They released their 1999 debut album "Watoosh!" under the band name Pezz. The album's lead-off single "Viking Death March" was made available last month and you can hear it by scrolling down to the bottom of the page. Billy Talent will preview their new material with a show at London's XOYO on August 16. They then play the NME/Radio 1 Stage at this summer's Reading and Leeds Festivals. They also recently performed at June's Download Festival.
Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    Too bad this band doesn't get too much coverage on this site. Loved the song and can't wait for September 7th. Hopefully the rest of the album sounds just as great.

    I thought they were gonna call it V, just to piss off those thinking it would be Billy Talent IV making them think they had missed an album. Big Billy Talent fan, and Viking Death March is sweet.

    Hopefully this returns to Billy Talent II. All their albums are great, but for me II was the best, it had the most emotionally strong songs and was amazing all round.

    I agree entirely. still good though.

    As a big BT fan, I'm really hoping for a step up in quality. Their S/T was amazing, II was pretty damn good as well, but III just lacked something.
