Gaza set to record new album

Friday, October 14, 2011 10:27 AM PT


Gaza will enter the studio on November 1st to commence recording for their third full-length.

Currently untitled, the album will be produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (Trap Them, Today Is The Day) at his Godcity studio in Salem, MA, and will be released in 2012 via Black Market Activities.

Says Gaza frontman Jon Parkin, "We've been writing and crafting all summer long and then some. The songs are exactly what critics and haters have been wanting to hear from us. We didn't write these for ourselves. We only care about what the world thinks."

The recording session falls amidst a full US tour, which finds Gaza venturing across the U.S. and back from their hometown of Salt Lake City, UT. Dates include:

10/21 Salt Lake City, UT @ Raunch Records

Seen them last Oct. I don't "get it".

I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's 'it' seems weird and scary. I'm stoked. Love this band. Excellent humans.
