Progressive instrumentalists SCALE THE SUMMIT have commenced work on the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2011’s “The Collective” for a spring 2013 release via Prosthetic Records.
Commented SCALE THE SUMMIT guitarist Chris Letchford: “We just started work on our next album. The material we have written so far is definitely pushing us into new territory.
“[I’m] very excited to see what we create!
“It’s been a lot of fun writing these songs with our new bassist, Mark Michell. He is a very skilled and talented guy, so these songs will definitely be our best yet!
“[I’m looking forward to getting them all finished and recorded so we can get out there and play them live.”
SCALE THE SUMMIT‘s third album, “The Collective”, sold around 1,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 39 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.
The follow-up to 2009’s “Carving Desert Canyons”, “The Collective” was recorded at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Mark Lewis (DEVILDRIVER, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER).
SCALE THE SUMMIT formed in 2005 while attending the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. The band relocated to Texas in 2006, where they recorded their first, self-released album. After signing with Prosthetic, they issued “Carving Desert Canyons”, which Revolver called “a cinematic blast of intricately melodic fretwork and pummeling percussion,” in 2009.
