Official press release:
Chimaira is currently in the studio with producer Jason Suecof (Trivuim, God Forbid) recording their fourth album, titled "Resurrection," at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida.
Last week producer Andy Sneap (Nevermore, Arch Enemy, Killswitch Engage) recorded drum tracks for "Resurrection" in Cleveland with original Chimaira drummer Andols Herrick, who is now back (in Chimaira) by popular demand. Andy Sneap will be mixing the album once it is completed. Expect to see this recording in stores Spring 2007 via Ferret Music.
Vocalist Mark Hunter explains, "This is our fourth album and we as a band, are collectively and for the first time ever, in synch and in a 'positive' new headspace. We are all really excited about the new material."
"Resurrection" features 13 songs, of which two of those songs will be added as bonus tracks for a special limited edition simultaneous worldwide release; plus, an added bonus documentary of 'the making of Resurrection' directed by Todd Bell. Bell directed Chimaira’s last DVD and at last fans can expect the loose ends from their (DVD The Dehumanizing Process) to be tied together with this special bonus release.
Additionally, the band has announced that their cover art will be done by artist Paul Booth.
