Willowtip Records signs six bands

Friday, May 13, 2005 4:58 PM PT

Pittsburgh grind band Circle of Dead Children has officially resigned with Willowtip Records. The label will be releasing the band's new MCD, "Zero Comfort Margin"on July 12th. "Zero Comfort Margin" features fifteen new songs and was recorded and produced by Steve Austin at his own Austin Enterprise studio. Sound samples and artwork can be viewed at here.

Hailing from France, death/tech/thrash outfit Gorod has signed to Willowtip. Formerly known as Gorgasm (France), the band has changed their name to Gorod to avoid confusion with the U.S. based Gorgasm. The debut full-length from Gorod, "Neurotripsicks," (previously only available in Europe) will be issued in North America with two new tracks and an all new layout on July 12th. Additionally, expect a new full-length from Gorod to be released sometime in 2006. You can preview material from Gorod at the willowtip Myspace page here.

Meanwhile, Willowtip has licensed the new full-length from New York City's The Dying Light for release in North America. Featuring former members of Cattle Press, Dim Mak, Ripping Corpse, and Hemlock, the sophomore album from TDL, titled "The Killing Plan," will be issued on July 26th. "The Killing Plan" was recorded and produced by Eric Rutan at his Mana Recording Studios in Florida.

Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, instrumental gurus Electro Quarterstaff are also a new addition to the Willowtip roster. The band is currently finishing the writing of their full-length which will be recorded later this year. Check out their website here demo material.

Grind outfit Kill The Client are yet another band to be added to the Willowtip roster. The band is currently working on new material that will be released on their debut full-length for Willowtip, expected to be recorded in June. Kill the Client will also be appearing at this year's Mayland Deathfest, Boston Doom and Grind Fest, and on a number of dates with Internal Bleeding and Bodies in the Gears of the Apparatus. For me information and MP3s from the band, check out their website here.

Finally, grindcore band Phobia are another new addition to the Willowtip line-up. With a slew of releases under their belt on many different labels, including Relapse Records, Necropolis Records, Deep Six Records, and more, states Willowip: "Phobia have established themselves as one of the greatest and most respected grindcore bands in the world." The group is currently on a West Coast tour with Rotten Sound and are still writing material for their latest full-length, which will hit streets later this year.
