The band released its 5th studio album A Place Where There's No More Pain through Napalm Records on April 28, 2017. The record debuted on Billboard's Hard Rock Albums chart at #24. Rolling Stone hailed it as "One of the Most Anticipated Albums of the Year."
Outside of music, Robert is a best-selling author and artist. He has written and illustrated several critically acclaimed, creator-owned, IDW Publishing comic book series, graphic novels and coloring books. In 2016, his smash hit adult coloring book The Beauty of Horror caught the attention of GQ, Buzz Feed, The Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and Nerdist, who praised it as "The World's Creepiest Adult Coloring Book." Volume two, The Beauty of Horror 2: Ghouliana's Creepatorium - Another GOREgeous Coloring Book will see a September 2017 release from IDW. Robert's other titles include Crawl to Me, Killogy and Wire Hangers. Killogy is currently being adapted into an animated dark comedy series. Robert studied cartooning under legendary Thor artist Walt Simonson while earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, which he attended on scholarship.
