Arkaea premiered their first video, "Locust," from their debut album Years in the Darkness this past Saturday night (6/20) on MTV's Headbangers Ball. If you missed the premiere, you can check it out below.

"'Locust' was our first pick for a music video and as the opening track for the album because it really sets the tempo of the album," explains Raymond Herrera, Arkaea drummer. "It is a strong track that shows a great introduction to what Arkaea is all about. We knew that we needed to come out swinging, and 'Locust' definitely offers that punch."

Arkaea, which comprises Herrera and guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers of Fear Factory plus bassist Pat Kavanagh and singer Jon Howard of Threat Signal, will release Years in the Darkness on July 14, 2009, on E1 Music (formerly Koch Records). The album was produced by Christian Olde Wolbers and Arkaea and mixed by legendary Producer Terry Date, best known for his work with the Deftones, Slipknot, White Zombie, Soundgarden, and Pantera.

Track listing for Years in the Darkness is:

Beneath the Shades of Grey
Years in the Darkness
Gone Tomorrow
Black Ocean
Break the Silence
Lucid Dreams
My Redemption
War Within
The World As One
Rise Today
Away From the Sun

The first single, "Locust," is now streaming on the band's Myspace page.
