Official press release:
John Gallagher, guitarist and vocalist of Dying Fetus, has announced that the group has entered the studio to record a new full-length album. The band will once again be working with long-time producer Steve Wright (Slipknot, Misery Index) at Wrightway Studios in Baltimore, MD.
Set to be released in mid 2012 through Relapse Records, the album will feature nine tracks and is a "return to roots" with production focused slightly more on slam than in the band's last few works. Thematically, the album is set to be a good old-fashioned piece of social and political commentary in the style of Dying Fetus as we have come to know. An official release date and album title will be announced shortly.
"The last album had some groove in it," stated John, "but [it] was basically a lot of tech; this one is a return to form of older Dying Fetus albums, so to speak - more modern production though, of course." "Everything's tight," John adds; "...the sound is crushing, the drums are amazing."
Additionally, Dying Fetus announced a series of special South American shows set to take place in mid-January. The band has also been confirmed for next year's prestigious Maryland Deathfest and France's Hellfest. Upcoming tour dates are as follows:
01/11 Buenos Aires, Argentina @ Asbury Bar
01/12 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil @ Underground Cultural
01/13 Recife, Brazil @ Burburinho Bar
01/14 São Paulo, Brazil @ Manifesto Bar
01/15 Santiago, Chile @ Club 334
01/17 Bogota, Colombia @ TBA
01/18 Armenia, Colombia @ TBA
