Official press release:

Raging New Orleans rock outfit Cane Hill will release their long-awaited, highly anticipated debut, full-length album, Smile, on July 15th via Rise Records. Their fans, AKA Patient(s), will be able to pre-order the album and get a taste of their first single in April. Those attending the band's upcoming shows with Atreyu in March will be able to pre-order the record early.

Cane Hill's first album, Smile, was recorded with producer WZRD BLD in Hollywood, CA earlier this year. The record follows the band's 2015 critically heralded, self-titled EP, which featured a number of riotous singles like "Time Bomb" (feat. Tyler "Scout" Acord), "Sunday School and "Ox Blood." Coming this summer, one of America's most furious new bands will deliver a savage new record that will undoubtedly elevate the band into heavy rock's most elite acts.

"We're more excited for this release than anything we've done as a band," says vocalist Elijah Witt. "I think we've finally figured out exactly what we are, and everything else was just a trial run. We've honed in on the violence and honesty that we've felt music has lacked."

When it came time to name their album, rock's vicious newcomers came up with the ironically titled Smile. A tongue-in-cheek homage to their unrelenting sound and ferocious stage show. "We want to see you smile, and then we'll break those pretty little teeth," Witt adds.
