WHITECHAPEL Brand New Album Announced; Track listing and Album Artwork Revealed
First Single "Hate Creation" Streaming Now

Having spent several years lauded as one of the frontrunners in their genre, in 2012 WHITECHAPEL stand as a defining force in contemporary heavy music. Building dramatically on the trademarked bludgeon of their first three releases, with Whitechapel the Tennessean sextet have inarguably delivered their most intense, dynamic, and downright hostile record to date. Drenched in atmospheric darkness, the record is also rife with gripping melodies that drag the listener in to the tumult, willing or otherwise, and across its ten tracks it is infused with an emotional depth that pointedly separates the band from the plethora of two-dimensional mosh-starters that have sprung up in their wake.

Whitechapel, the band's self-titled fourth album is slated for a June 19th release date via Metal Blade Records. Today WHITECHAPEL have unveiled the album artwork, track listing and released the first single from the album.

Whitechapel Track listing:
1. Make it Bleed
2. Hate Creation
3. (Cult)uralist
4. I, Dementia
5. Section 8
6. Faces
7. Dead Silence
8. The Night Remains
9. Devoid
10. Possibilities of an Impossible Existence

The album was engineered and mixed by Mark Lewis (Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver), who also handled production duties alongside the band. The album artwork was created by Aaron Marsh of Forefathers Group with art direction provided by WHITECHAPEL.

The first single from Whitechapel entitled "Hate Creation" is available for streaming exclusively HERE. Check it out and be sure to pre-order your copy of the album.

Returning to their rightful place on the road, the band are enthused to take these new songs to their rabid fan base. They stand confident in their belief that their followers will hungrily devour the latest evolution of their sound, and having dramatically bolstered their fan base through blowing away the unsuspecting crowds on 2010's Warped Tour they are sure to draw in new adherents anywhere they play.

WHITECHAPEL are set to tour with Miss May I, After the Burial, Within the Ruins, and The Plot in You as part of the "Recorruptor" kicking off May 3rd in Louisville, KY and running through May 17th in Portland, ME.
