WHITECHAPEL will release their new, self-titled album June 19th in North America and June 15th/18th via Metal Blade Records in Europe.

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.

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.

Whitechapel is available for pre-order in exclusive bundle packages HERE.

Loudwire is hosting an exclusive stream of the single I, Dementia HERE.

The second installment focuses on the recording of the guitar parts for the new album and is available for viewing HERE. The third video focuses on the vocal tracking process and can be viewed HERE.
