Canadian modern metal masters THREAT SIGNAL have issued the following update:
“On June 12th we are driving our asses out to Massachusetts to begin tracking our third release with metal mastermind Zeuss [Chriss Harris]. He has worked on many killer albums from bands such as CHIMAIRA, HATEBREED, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE ACACIA STRAIN, BORN OF OSIRIS, SHADOWS FALL, and many more… We are extremely excited to have Zeuss on board producing and mixing our new record!
“So what can you expect from the new THREAT SIGNAL record? Well… basically we said, ‘Let’s write the heaviest fuckin’ record we possibly can.’ We’ve been experimenting with seven-string guitars and drop tunings since the early days, so we have decided to write almost the whole new record that way. We are headed back to the ‘Under Reprisal’ days but with bigger balls.”
Fan-filmed video footage of THREAT SIGNAL performing a brand new song, “Fallen Disciples”, on May 13, 2011 at Foufounes Électriques in Montreal, Quebec, Canada can be viewed below.
THREAT SIGNAL recently parted ways with drummer Norm Killeen and guitarist Adam Weber and replaced them with Alex Rudinger from Frederick, Maryland and Chris Feener from Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland, Canada, respectively.
THREAT SIGNAL last year completed the “Threat Over Europe 2010” headlining tour with RAUNCHY (Denmark), SYBREED (Switzerland), M.A.N (Sweden) and ILLIDIANCE (Russia).
THREAT SIGNAL‘s sophomore album, “Vigilance”, sold around 1,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 32 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 in September 2009 via Nuclear Blast Records, the CD was produced by vocalist Jon Howard and mixed by Greg Reely (FEAR FACTORY, FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY).
THREAT SIGNAL members Jon Howard and Pat Kavanagh are also involved with ARKAEA, the band featuring FEAR FACTORY members Raymond Herrera (drums) and Christian Olde Wolbers (guitar).
