Wretched announces new album

Wednesday, February 01, 2012 2:57 PM PT

Official press release:

Wretched has entered the studio to record their third full-length album, Son of Perdition. The forthcoming effort is set for a March 27 release via Victory Records and will be produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, He Is Legend, For Today) at The Basement Recording in Winston Salem, North Carolina.

Last year, Wretched solidified its line-up with the addition of industry-veterans Adam Cody (Glass Casket) and Andrew Grevey (Loculus) taking the positions of vocalist and bassist, respectively. Son of Perdition marks the first official appearances by Cody and Grevey since their inception into Wretched.

The band took "a huge step forward, musically," confirms guitarist and one of the two founding members Steven Funderburk on the new record. Funderbunk goes on to say, "Lyrically, the fans can expect an apocalyptic-type theme that portrays a very personal experience. This record will include some of our darkest and most mature material written to date."

Son of Perdition also exposes a "more melodic approach to the Wretched sound," says Funderburk, "A lot of the drums are harmonically matched with a lot of the guitar riffs. We also used a lot of cool chords we haven't used in the past. It's far more rhythmic and grooves more than our previous records."

Wretched will support Son of Perdition on this spring's Metal Alliance Tour beginning in March, hitting 31 cities across the U.S. and Canada.

I heard these guys went broke on their last tour because they had to buy so many pregnancy tests

If we can expect an apocalyptic-type theme that portrays a very personal experience, we can expect an album about all those strippers and cheerleaders lives they ruined on the beyond the gate tour. Get a clue Wretched! Life isn't about partying and banging all the girls in the world.
