Background

In January 2015, the band announced they are to enter studio to write and record a new album due in late 2015.

On May 2, 2015, they released the title of the new album as Got Your Six. On May 19, 2015, they released the art work for their new album and announced that the album will be released on August 28, 2015. They launched a preview for their new single titled "Jekyll and Hyde" in a special video message. They also announced the dates of a co-headlining North American Tour with Papa Roach and accompanied by In This Moment as special guests with support from From Ashes to New for the tour, during which they will promote the album. The release date was later moved forward a week to September 4, 2015.

Drummer Jeremy Spencer said of the new album in an interview, "I'm digging it, man. It's actually more brutal, with more extreme dynamics. There are some really mellow parts and then some really brutal parts. So we're running the whole gamut of sounds.".

Reception

Selling 119,000 units in its first week, Got Your Six debuted at #2 on the September 26, 2015 survey of the Billboard 200, and #1 on the Top Rock Albums survey of the same date. Of the 119,000 units sold in its first week, 114,000 of them were pure album sales, making it the best-selling album of the week.

It was certified Gold by the RIAA on August 8, 2016; and has sold more than 390,000 pure albums as of September 13, 2016.
