North Carolina’s DAYLIGHT DIES has issued the following update:
“We’re proud to announce that the fourth full-length DAYLIGHT DIES album will be mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. Mixing will begin on April 1st. Jens was also responsible for mixing ‘Lost To The Living’ and ‘Dismantling Devotion’ and we couldn’t imagine the new album being in more capable hands.
“Progress continues to be brisk on the recording front, as clean guitars and keys have been completed. Vocal recording is now underway.”
As previously reported, DAYLIGHT DIES‘s new material is its most varied yet, due in part to bassist Egan O’Rourke‘s “significant songwriting contributions” this time around.
DAYLIGHT DIES played three shows in Europe in December — including at the third edition of the Madrid Is The Dark festival on December 8-10 at the Old School venue in Getafe, Spain.
DAYLIGHT DIES‘s latest album, “Lost To The Living”, was released in the U.S. in June 2008 via Candlelight Records. The CD features captivatingly dark original artwork from renowned artist Travis Smith, who has worked with the band before and whose other previous collaborations include OPETH, ANATHEMA and KATATONIA.
