Incite to release new album 'Wake Up Dead' in March

Official press release:

Arizona groove metal outfit Incite returns with new songs up their sleeves and have recently signed a contract with Atomic Fire Records. Following five relentless albums and an insane touring schedule under their belts, Richie Cavalera and his gang of misfits gear up for Wake Up Dead, set for release on March 25th. This infectious collection of raucous new tracks and remastered gems from their fifteen-plus year career proves once again that Incite are indeed the missing link between Machine Head and Lamb Of God.

On their five albums The Slaughter (2009), All Out War (2012), Up In Hell (2014), Oppression (2016), and Built To Destroy (2019), Incite cemented their reputation as one of America's leading groove armadas, heavily hitting home with their blend of old-school thrash majesty, frantic aggression, melody, skill, and bravado. What began as a band of greenhorns driving around the States in a shitty van, thrashing small clubs, has evolved into a band with the potential, the passion, and the power to become one of metal's biggest acts.

Written in several bouts of feverish inspiration during last year's pandemic chaos, Wake Up Dead delivers the goods in the most relentless way. With recording duties again handled by legendary producer Steve Evetts (who Richie Cavalera notes is, "the only guy who can simultaneously record The Cure and Suicide Silence and pull it off") in Omen Room Studios just outside Los Angeles, here's a band that couldn't be more comfortable with the place they're in right now. Kicking off the proceedings with the open fire that is "Fuck With Me (Wake Up Dead)," the record's menacing second track, "War Soup," will make a lasting impression on international heavy metal troops standing as the first Incite song ever to feature the vocals of both Richie and his step-father Max Cavalera, a historical gathering of heavy metal generations.

Comments Richie Cavalera, "Metalheads, we've held back this beast long enough! It's time! We've reworked the team, we've added more heavy metal, and couldn't be more fired up! Our new album Wake Up Dead will drop with MinusHead/Atomic Fire Records for the first time ever! This album is exactly what the metal worlds needs to kick off 2022 heavy AF!"

Atomic Fire Records CEO and founder Markus Wosgien adds, "When Dez Fafara, singer of DevilDriver and manager of acts like Cradle Of Filth, Jinjer, and 8 Kalacas, introduced us the new material of Incite, we were simply blown away. Those five new tracks simply were the shit! Each track was super catchy, straightforward, and massively brutal and aggressive. I couldn't believe that I missed this incredible band over all these years and had a new mission: The metal world needs to know about Incite and how great they are. So, the idea starts to grow to not only do an EP, but also add the best of their old tracks, remaster them, and demonstrate what Incite is about. This new release is one of the best modern thrash metal releases of all time. This is both fresh, unique, and still somehow old-school as fuck. Fronted by Richie Cavalera, this band has an amazing singer with a serious history and well known parents. Check them out; you all will love them."

Keith Buckley here. I prefer to Wake up Alive. Those who have turned their backs on me once I decided to say "no" to them once are living spiritually barren lives. My Truth is what I'm now living and Your Truth is in actuality your False. Be Blessed. Talk soon

Hi, Dino here. I am the missing link between Machine Head and Lamb of God, not this pal. I'm also the missing link between Tom Byron and Natasha Nice.

Wish my step-dad would be in a band with me. Instead, he just slaps me around and constantly makes me buy cartons of Winston cigarettes for him when he's too drunk to drive to the store.

"I couldn't believe that I missed this incredible band over all these years and had a new mission:" They were desperately trying to find someone to release this turd originally and there's no way mommy didn't shoot this over to him considering Max was on the label. Blatant attempt here to butter up mommy to try and get Soulfly or whatever other garbage Max is doing when he's done with Nuclear Blast.
