February 12th, 2013 - The new release from Spoken entitled Illusion is out today via eOne Entertainment. The album was produced by Jasen Rauch (RED, Breaking Benjamin). Illusion can be streamed on Loudwire through February 18th at this location: http://loudwire.com/spoken-Illusion-exclusive-album-stream/

Spoken is comprised of Matt Baird, Oliver Crumpton, and Ryan Pei. Illusion is a concept with which most can relate, as it references disappointment, and bitterness" states the bands frontman Matt Baird. "The album title refers to the situations in life which are not what they seem. Sometimes we have expectations about circumstances or relationships which don't play out the way we intend them too. Then, when you are affected negatively by the actions of another and the bubble bursts, how do you respond?"

Illusion is an exercise in aggression and calculated fragility. Laced with testosterone, the album throws down with the elite of metal and hardcore in calculated moments of heaviness. But what makes this record distinctive is not its speedy riffage or it's pounding beats, but it's emotional candor. Several of the standout tracks, including the undeniable singles "Through it All" and "Take everything," dabble more in modern rock than they do in direct assault.

Illusion track listing:
01. Stand Alone
02. Beneath The Surface
03. Don't Go
04. Through It All
05. More Than You Know
06. Remember The Day
07. Shadow Over Me
08. Accuser
09. Take Everything
10. Tonight
11. Calm The Storm
12. Illusion
