The Home Team has announced their third album, The Crucible Of Life. The LP is set to be released on July 12 via Thriller Records and will feature Broadside and Intervals each on a track. The album will also include the band’s previously released singles: “Brag,” “Loud,” and “Hell.” 

Dedicated listeners of the heavy pop act can choose between a black vinyl pressing and an orange “whispy smoke” variant or collect them all, including a special edition white vinyl option, in a bundle. For those who prefer to keep it old school, cassettes and CDs are also available to pre-order. Two different merch bundles are also up for grabs and include the CD version of The Crucible Of Life, a signed poster of the band, plus a shirt. 

Fans can pre-order the upcoming release here.
