In new WHITECHAPEL tour news, the band has just confirmed a string of dates with Hatebreed, All Shall Perish and Deez Nuts. The tour is scheduled to kick off September 13th in Clifton Park, NY and will run through October 12th in Detroit, MI. Tickets go on sale for fan club members Wednesday June 6th and for the general public on Friday June 8th. A complete list of dates can be found below.
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 (The 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 filmed a series of videos during the recording process of the new album. The first video in the series provides an in depth look at the drum tracking process for the album and can be viewed 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.
The first single from Whitechapel entitled "Hate Creation" is available for streaming exclusively HERE.
