Society’s Plague is an Epic Melodic Metal band from Lexington, KY. Utilizing a unique blend of melodic death metal elements, dueling guitar harmonies, and infectious keyboard and orchestral arrangements, Society’s Plague has created a sound fondly sought after by their steadily growing fan base.
Since 2007, Society’s Plague has performed over 300 shows spanning 25 states across the US, including 4 national tours, 3 festivals, and several one-off shows with notable artists such as In Flames, Between The Buried and Me, Killswitch Engage, Disturbed, Unearth, and many more.
In 2008, Society’s Plague self released their debut EP, “The Mercy Untold” (Produced by John Burke and Don DeBiase at Chin Studios in Cleveland, OH), which gained notable traction with regional sales, and Social Media outlets.
Following that release, the band inked a deal in 2010 with Stand And Deliver Records, and that summer released their first full length LP, “The Human, The Canvas” (Produced by Tony Gammalo and Ben Schigel at Spider Studios in Strongsville, OH). With the release of this album, the band saw their national and international fan base grow exponentially, including over 80k plays on Spotify alone.
From 2013-2015, Society’s Plague took a short hiatus, and returned in 2016 to a nearly sold out hometown show, with plans to release their sophomore album in 2017.

Lexington, KY (April 12, 2018) – SOCIETY’S PLAGUE take on witches and wizards with metal, in their new “Rise of the Eidolon” music video. This is the third music video from their new album Call to the Void, which comes out worldwide on April 27, 2018 via Eclipse Records. The video was directed by Corey Dupree at Foxfed Productions, and was shot in the fields of Stanford, KY. Watch the epic journey of three knights on their quest to track down and defeat the evil mages who will stop at nothing to bring a plague upon this land. Will the knights bring about the victory they seek, or will the mages succeed in bringing death and chaos to this quiet countryside? Watch the video below, to find out!
“I had a medieval-themed wedding, so I ended up with a lot of really cool props like suits of armor and swords. So now we have a super epic music video with knights, and swords, and armor” states guitarist Joe Royer. Shooting this video wasn’t all fun and games though… “Falling in armor really hurts” says drummer James Doyle. “We are all a bunch of nerds, so we knew we had to have an epic video complete with knights, wizards, and pointing. I’m glad I got to be a wizard, because falling down in armor looks like it hurts” says vocalist Matt Newton.
