Indianapolis metal outfit THE CONTORTIONIST have officially entered the studio to begin working on their yet to be titled all new LP. Guitarist Robby Baca comments on what fans can expect:
“We’re pretty stoked to be in the studio again, especially with Jamie King. Some of my favorite records have come out of this corner of the woods, here in Winston-Salem, NC. We’re also unquestionably psyched about Mike Lessard’s voice on these new tracks. This record seems to be a good mix of old and new TC, and Mike’s wide range of animal noises should make this one a real banger.”
Guitarist Cameron Maynard adds,
“These new songs are extremely refreshing and I cannot think of a more ideal place to watch our creation come to life.”
The band has tapped Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME) to produce and will be tracking and mixing at The Basement Recording Studio in Winston-Salem, NC.
The new album will be released via Entertainment One (eOne Music) / Good Fight Music and will be the band’s follow up to the highly publicized “Intrinsic,” which came out in 2012 highlighted by singles “Holomovement” and “Causality.”
Metal Injection called “Intrinsic” “one of the most exciting metal albums of the year.” Absolute Punk claimed that “Intrinsic puts The Contortionist at the top of the list for the future of prog-metal” and Metal Sucks flat out called the band “one of the most exciting young prog-metal bands on the scene today.”
Over the last few years THE CONTORTIONIST has accumulated quite a touring resume supporting “Intrinsic.” The band was able to share the stage with acts like THE FACELESS, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, PROTEST THE HERO and even had a chance to support DEFTONES. Stay tuned for more info surrounding this highly anticipated release in the coming months.
