The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break.

Metal Blade are currently offering pre-orders for the album as well as a stream of the new track “Three Swords”. Guitarist Clayton Bartholomew issued the following comments regarding the new track:

“‘Three Swords’ was the first song we put together for the new album when we started writing it back a year or so ago. In fact, the songs on the album were written in the order they appear on the record. The first album, To Sail Black Waters, ends with a single guitar part fading out, and the same riff fades in to the Pathway album via ‘Three Swords.’ The song is just a piece of the overall puzzle that constitutes Pathway, which I believe as an album is more well-rounded and dynamic as a whole than any of our previous work.”
