Following a solid year of relentless stage pollution, TOXIC HOLOCAUST will enter the studio later this winter to record the as-yet-untitled follow-up to their 2011 “Conjure And Command” full-length.

“After taking a much-needed break from touring and finally being able to enjoy life outside the confines of a van,” details band mastermind Joel Grind, “things have come back in full swing and I’ve been working nonstop writing the new TOXIC record for Relapse Records. Things are coming along great it’s a bit too early to tell for sure but it seems like this record will encompass all of TOXIC‘s past recordings while building on that as well and moving forward. I can’t wait to get into the studio to record this!”

Praised for its “nuclear reactive riffage and Repo Man punk attitude,” by Revolver and commended for its “tar-thick riffage, staggering breakdowns, and a corroded dose of self-loathing,” by The Onion‘s A.V. Club, “Conjure And Command” continues to reap hails from fans and critics globally. As an added bonus, the band closed the year with the honor of having the song “Bitch” rear its sonic apocalyptic menace in an episode of high-rated FX drama series “Sons Of Anarchy” (season 5; episode 11).

TOXIC HOLOCAUST mutated into existence in 1999, when Joel Grind merged his love for classic punk and metal and the flash of L.A. hard rock into his ideal band. Like his influences — BATHORY, VENOM, ENGLISH DOGS, POSSESSED, BROKEN BONESTOXIC HOLOCAUST offers up blazing riffs, gravel-throated vocals, and a deadly fixation on the evil in man and a post-apocalyptic world wrapped in a DIY attitude.
