Legion announces new album

Official press release: Ohio metal act Legion has announced their debut album entitled "Woke," due out July 30th via eOne Music. The band has wrapped up the recording process with prodcuer Daniel Laskiewicz (The Acacia Strain) and has vowed to release their most ferocious material to date. Vocalist Mike Guilford comments: "I speak for the entire band when I say we're very excited. We have put a lot of honesty and aggression into 'Woke'. Hopefully this record opens everyone's eyes the way it has opened ours." Legion's forthcoming debut album for eOne Music delivers upon the promise put down by their devastating EPs. No stone is left unturned when it comes to Legion's targets, from the government to the church. Legion speaks their minds, musically and lyrically, without compromise. Columbus, Ohio has produced many celebrated "scene" bands, but Legion actively chose another route. They didn't base their career plans on the accumulation of Internet hype nor on cookie-cutter music designed to cater to a specific crowd. They went against the grain, on the path of resistance, decidedly choosing hard work and originality. No choreographed stage moves. Legion isn't following the scene blueprint. Legion is all about a genuine connection with their fans through authentic expression. Ultimately, Legion looks to create music that inspires listeners to be themselves. They are believers in the power of creativity and artistic achievement. One thing seems assured: Legion will make a mark on the heavy music scene.
