California metallers BONDED BY BLOOD have set “The Aftermath” as the title of their third studio album, due on July3 in North America (one day earlier internationally) via Earache Records. The CD was tracked at at Darth Mader Music in Los Angeles with producer and former MACHINE HEAD/SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader (DEVILDRIVER, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH).
Commented BONDED BY BLOOD drummer Carlos Regalado: “We worked so hard on this album for a solid year and we accomplished what we were aiming for.
“[The album title has] got a simple meaning behind it — the aftermath of all the shit we’ve been through in the past couple years: member changes, unexpected problems on the road, personal issues, a lot of obstacles that almost ended BONDED BY BLOOD.
“This is what we love, this band is everything to us, we weren’t going to let other people dictate and destroy our aspirations and dreams.
“‘The Aftermath’ cover art is just straight up badass, it shows what society is doing wrong and how things need to change, or mother earth will fuck you up.”
BONDED BY BLOOD is gearing up for a North American tour with KITTIE, BLACKGUARD and THE AGONIST which will kick off on April 10 in Poughkeepsie, New York.
BONDED BY BLOOD‘s second album, 2010’s “Exiled To Earth”, sold around 600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 86 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
