Atheist set to record new album
Florida based technical metal pioneers Atheist will be recording their fifth studio album during later this year for a release slated in 2015. The album will mark the return of Tony Choy and his debut recording alongside founding members Kelly Shaefer and Steve Flynn. Founding member Kelly Shaefer comments: "We are happy to report that the 5th Atheist LP is in the works, and the band could not be more excited about the possibilities... Tony Choy will join us this go around, and having the endless rhythmic possibilities will be amazing." Rounding out Atheist will be Chris Martin and Jason Holloway, both joined the band on the past tours and have also not been featured on an Atheist recording yet. Jason Suecof (Death Angel, Job For A Cowboy) has been tapped to record and mix the new album. Shaefer adds: "We will be working with Jason Suecof on this record, he has such a vast wealth of knowledge of our history as well as our sound, and we were lucky to be able to have him mix 'Jupiter', but this time he will be involved in the recording as well as the mix so that will be beastly!"
