Oakland, California extreme metallers ALL SHALL PERISH have been forced to cancel their previously announced European tour due to “scheduling conflicts for the new album and the restructuring of band management,” according to the band. The group was slated to hit the road in Europe in June alongside SUICIDE SILENCE and AFTER THE BURIAL.
Audio samples of all the tracks that appear on “This Is Where It Ends”, the fourth full-length album from ALL SHALL PERISH, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. The CD will be released on July 26 (North America) and July 29 (Europe) via Nuclear Blast Records.
Commented the band: “This time around we chose Brent Elliott White (DEATH ANGEL, JOB FOR A COWBOY, WHITECHAPEL) to handle the artwork duties.
“With this album, we wanted to grab people’s attention, not only musically but visually.
“Lyrically, this album reflects a lot of our own personal struggles. The concept was to portray a man faced with the humiliation of his past and his continued suffering. Brent‘s dark, vivid style fit perfectly in bringing this cover to life.”
The majority of the follow-up to 2008’s “Awaken The Dreamers” was recorded and mixed once again at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland with producer Zack Ohren (LIGHT THIS CITY, DECREPIT BIRTH, SUFFOCATION).
“Divine Illusion”, a brand new song from ALL SHALL PERISH, is available for streaming on the band’s Facebook page. “Like/share” the band on Facebook in order to hear it.
ALL SHALL PERISH has been added to this year’s installment of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The 26-date trek, which is scheduled to kick off on July 9 at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California, will also include DISTURBED, GODSMACK, MEGADETH, MACHINE HEAD, IN FLAMES and TRIVIUM, among many others.
“Awaken The Dreamers” sold around 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 126.
