The Stranded has issued the following statement online about the band’s creation and upcoming new album release:
“Poly-instrumentist Ettore Rigotti and screamer Claudio Ravinale from Disarmonia Mundi (the italian death metal act known for the presence of Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid from Soilwork on its ranks) formed with guitarist Elliot Sloan (also known for being a professional skater in the Tony Hawk team) a brand new band called ‘The Stranded.’ Keyboard player Alessio NeroArgento has been subsequently added to the line-up.
“The debut album entitled ‘Survivalism Boulevard‘ is scheduled on July 2nd, 2012 via Coroner Records, while the Japanese version, featuring an exclusive bonus track, will hit the stores via Media Factory.
