DYING FETUS will enter the studio in November to begin recording its new album for an early 2012 release.
The band’s last CD, “Descend Into Depravity”, sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 166 on The Billboard 200 chart. The effort landed at position No. 4 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. Released on September 15, 2009 via Relapse Records, the follow-up to 2007’s “War Of Attrition” was recorded at Wright Way Studios in the group’s hometown with producer Steve Wright.
Remastered and repackaged editions of DYING FETUS‘ earliest records were made available in January. DYING FETUS‘ 1995 collection of demos “Infatuation With Malevolence” and the band’s debut album, “Purification Through Violence”, both include liner notes written by the band, archival photographs from each period, expanded artwork, and two previously unreleased bonus tracks.
