Dagoba to release new studio album “By Night” on February 18th 2022

Dagoba By Night cover
Modern metallers Dagoba are back! After putting their stamp on the metal scene with their unique blend of metal and neckbreaking grooves, and relentlessly touring and sharing the stage with legendary acts like Metallica, Machine Head and In Flames, Dagoba’s undeniable talent was discovered by Napalm Records. Now, the French four-piece is gearing up to reach the next level with their most ambitious material yet - the punishing new full-length, “By Night”, out on February 18th, 2022 via Napalm Records!
Following up to their recent track and exclusive 7" “The Hunt”, Dagoba unleashes the new single “The Last Crossing” today! The song is an in-your-face banger offering melodic choruses and harsh vocals by singer Shawter and unstoppable blast beats. This is an impressive, hard-hitting first glimpse into what fans can expect from “By Night”!
Dagoba on their new single “The Last Crossing”:
“While our last video for ‘The Hunt’ was more focused on cinematic storytelling, ‘The Last Crossing’ rather showcases the full band line-up and our strength as a performing band. We feel like Dagoba have never been as strong and tight as now, and the ‘The Last Crossing’ video transports that energy perfectly”.

Watch the music video for “The Last Crossing” below.

Dagoba deftly aces the balancing act between harsh breakdowns, dense walls of sound and grooving passages with ease. Even in its hardest passages, the album never gets too overwhelming - one smashing track is followed by the next, moving breathlessly with ease. “By Night” is a beast of an album showcasing how far Dagoba can take a multitude of influences and styles and combine them effortlessly. This is a must-have for true fans of searing modern metal!
Dagoba on the creation process of “By Night”:
“We live in challenging times, and that’s not only because of the strength-sapping pandemic. Sometimes the world seems to be a dark place. We know it’s an ambitious project, but we really want our fans to feel good, and contribute to their happiness. Therefore, we deliver our blend of metal music. During the weeks and months in the lockdown period we had so much time to have a focus on the album production. We could look at every detail in each track, and after all "By Night" has become our most accomplished album so far. We are really happy with the new record and cannot wait to share it with our fans and the world”.

Varying in individual territories, “By Night” will be available digitally, as a CD (bundled with an exclusive t-shirt), as well as black and exclusive red transparent vinyl! Pre-order “By Night” here.
