Los Angeles based three-piece alternative hard rock act Smile Empty Soul have announced their first new full-length album of new music in five years. The album, titled 'Oblivion' is scheduled to drop on May 25 via Smile Empty Music Inc, nearly 15 years to the day after their Gold-selling self-titled debut album.

The LA rockers have also released a brand new music video for the lead single from the album, 'Stars'. Check out the music video below:

Originating out of Los Angeles, CA in the late 1990s, the band has stayed true to their brand of "no bullshit", "real as it gets" hard rock to this day.

The band signed a major label record deal in 2003 to release their self-titled debut album in May of that year, going on to achieve massive success at alternative/rock radio, and MTV with three hugely successful singles/videos, including “Bottom Of The Bottle.”

Smile Empty Soul has become known for their constant touring and never-wavering, honest sound and lyrics. Now, with their new album 'Oblivion' set to release next month, and a calendar full of tour dates, the band seems to have established themselves as one of the defining underground rock bands of their generation.

Digital pre-orders for the new album are now available on Apple Music. Also, check out the album art for 'Oblivion' and the track listing below:
