After releasing their Facedown Records debut album The Absolute, Christian metalcore outfit Ace Augustine seemed to fall off the face of the earth. Then last summer the band reemerged from the depths with their announcement of signing with Red Cord Records. Up until this point, the band had gone through two rounds of member changes, a break up, and was dealing with a lot of angry and confused fans. Those fans can now rejoice as The Sick and Suffering is tentatively set for an April release on Red Cord Records. As a present to their loyal fans who have stuck around throughout all of this, the band just released their music video for their first single entitled “Mannequins” on YouTube. Vocalist and guitarist Tyler Chadwick commented on the single by saying, “After some discussions, we decided to release ‘Mannequins’ because we all felt that it was a song that really showed the variety that our new album would have. It has some heavier parts but it also has one of the best chorus’ we’ve ever written.”
 
The writing process for The Sick and Suffering began during the spring of 2012 with Tyler writing the entire album and recording the pre-production tracks by himself in his college dorm room over a three month period. With Tyler commenting, “We had no record label at the time and really no direction, no vision of the future; all we knew was that we had a lot of fans that wanted to hear new Ace Augustine music that hadn’t been written yet and that we had no way to release it to them. It was a very stressful and awkward time.” Then things took a turn for the worse during the summer as their drummer and vocalist at the time departed the band. Tyler commented on these events by stating, “While both of these events seemed negative, even catastrophic at the time, this is where Ace Augustine was reborn. We found new members and a fresh new direction that ended up with us putting together a record that we are so proud of.”
 
Tyler goes on to talk about the finished product, “I always hate when bands say that their album is much more mature than their previous, but the truth is that for us that statement is entirely true. I was fifteen when The Absolute was primarily written and I’ve actually grown up and matured since then. It is an album that we have poured so much emotion into and something that I am extremely proud of.  I love that I get so excited every time I sit down and listen to it and still get goose bumps every time I hear some of the lines that are in the songs. I hope this record shows everyone that Ace Augustine is back and that we aren’t going anywhere soon.”
