Iwrestledabearonce have revealed the track listing and cover artwork for their new CD Ruining It For Everybody, due out July 26.

The fearless five-some–Krysta Cameron (vocals), Steven Bradley (guitar, keyboard, programming, samples), John Ganey (guitar, keyboard, programming, samples), Mike “Rickshaw” Martin (bass) and Mikey Montgomery (drums)–still bludgeons with the best of them. In fact, their psychotic polyrhythmic groove fuels Ruining It For Everybody. Simultaneously, Iwrestledabearonce completely embrace their inner Radiohead, elegantly exorcising eerie emotion via singer Krysta Cameron.

Iwrestledabearonce don’t shroud anything in mystery, and they’re doing exactly what they want. For Bradley, the album title serves as the ultimate middle finger to expectations, conventions, and the norm. “We do whatever the fuck we want, and that normally ends up pissing people off,” he declares. “We like to take elements from every style and genre and ruin them for everybody.”

Look for Iwrestledabearonce to take their one-of-a-kind, fearless live show on the road again starting July 21. First up, they’ll join The All Stars Tour, featuring Emmure, For Today, Born Of Osiris, After The Burial, Chelsea Grin, Attila, Alesana, Bless The Fall, In This Moment, The Ghost Inside, Motionless In White, Sleeping With Sirens and For All Those Sleeping. These dates run through August 21 in Las Vegas, with another week of shows expected to be added. …read more

‘Khaos Legions’ in stores now on Century Media Records!

“The time has come to storm the shops and fetch your copy of the new Arch Enemy album,” said vocalist Angela Gossow. “We can’t wait to get over there this September and play these songs live for you! We expect you to be the 6th member of Arch Enemy once again and chant along! Legions marching, ready to fire! Let the streets burn whilst listening to Khaos Legions!”

In other news, Sweden’s extreme heavy metal act Arch Enemy has announced its return to North America, a headlining run on the MetalSucks and Full Metal Jackie Present: North American Khaos 2011 tour, set to launch in September. The North American leg of Arch Enemy’s world tour will kick off in Baltimore on September 8th, and features an all-star cast of DevilDriver, Skeletonwitch and Chthonic in support.

“We pledge to the United States of America and its beautiful neighbor Canada that we will only bring the utmost heavy metal ‘Khaos’ to your shores!” said vocalist Angela Gossow. “We can’t wait to kick off this tour come September. After all the European summer festivals, we are ready to fire!”

“We are very happy to be coming back to the US and Canada hot on the heels of our new Khaos Legions opus!” added guitarist Michael Amott. “We’re working on a special set list and some other surprises. We chose the other bands on the bill because they are all killer, and bring their own terrifying brand of brutal steel! Yes, good times lie ahead for the metal connoisseur of North America!”

Arch Enemy is touring in support of its first collection of new material since 2007, Khaos Legions, which hit stores in North America on June 7th via Century Media Records.
