Arizona grind-masters LANDMINE MARATHON are recording the follow-up to 2010’s “Sovereign Descent”. Once again, the band’s as-yet-untitled fourth CD is being tracked at guitarist Ryan Butler‘s Arcane Digital Recording Studios, where he’s recorded past efforts from the band, as well as those by MISERY INDEX, PHOBIA, THE FUNERAL PYRE and many more.
LANDMINE MARATHON is about to enter the mixing stage and is aiming for a late fall release. Summer tour dates will be announced in the coming days.
Commented Butler: “The new album contains our most raw and vicious material to date. We definitely found a great groove in writing and recording this record, everything feels very fluid. This is in great part due to our new drummer Andy York, who brings a powerful and tight dynamic to the band. I am really excited for the world to hear this new album.”
LANDMINE MARATHON, whose vocalist, Grace Perry, appeared on the cover of Revolver magazine in late 2009, performed several shows at South By Southwest and the second annual Scion Rock Fest in March 2010, and also appeared at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest and Indianapolis’ Dude Fest last year. The band also filmed a video for the track “Shadows Fed To Tyrants” and participated in a unique collaboration with “Crank” filmmaker Brian Taylor, who recorded his own guitar tracks to the track “Skin From Skull”.
