Arsis to release new album in April
Virginia-based melodic tech-death metal band, Arsis, have announced Unwelcome as the title of their upcoming fifth full-length album. The follow up to their 2010 release Starve for the Devil, will be released on April 30, 2013 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. "At this point Arsis has more than a few releases in our catalogue and we are about to have one more, Unwelcome," commented founder and lead guitarist/vocalist James Malone. "Of all the albums we have done, Unwelcome is an album that I wanted to define the band's sound. We were all focused for the writing and recording and the end product reflects this. Get ready for Unwelcome to see the light of day on April 30th through Nuclear Blast USA and for Arsis to be destroying the new material live throughout May with Hypocrisy, Krisiun, and Aborted!" "We're excited to be back out on the road after spending down-time rebuilding the band and recording both Unwelcome and Leper's Caress," added bassist Noah Martin. "Down to the artwork, Unwelcome is by far the most raw and brutal album Arsis has released with Nuclear Blast. Upon its release, we look forward to a very busy 2013 touring season, seeing all our old friends and making new ones. If Canadian fans want to bring some homemade poutine to a show, I would be forever indebted to you." Unwelcome was tracked at Audiohammer Studios in FL with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel).
