WHITECHAPEL Continue Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Devastation
Self-Titled Fourth Album Available Now on Metal Blade Records

Knoxville, TN sextet WHITECHAPEL are continuing they visual and aural assault on fans across the country this summer as on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The band is touring in support of their recently released self-titled album, which is available at the shows and has been selling like crazy alongside the band's merchandise. The guys are taking part in meet and greets daily with their fans at the Rockstar Energy Drink signing tent and will continue to tear up stages across the country this summer.

The band's latest effort debuted at #47 on the Top 200 Chart, #10 on the Top Independent Albums Chart, #3 on the Hard Music Albums Chart (Current), #2 on the Hard Music Albums Chart (Core Stores) and #64 on the Top Digital Album Chart.

Whitechapel is one of the most well-received albums of the summer, with critical acclaim and high praise from some of the most respected music outlet including The New York Times, Alternative Press and Metal Hammer.

"They build unforgiving walls of riff, and unpleasant ones too. Pleasure's not the point, though. There is a militaristic certainty to Whitechapel's work, which activates the true thrills of masochism." New York Times

"The band's best album yet by a wide margin." 4/5, Alternative Press Magazine

"Bolder and smarter than previous efforts and with flashes of subtle invention peppering their trademark onslaught of fat, hellish grooves and adrenalized blasting, Whitechapel positions its creators as worthy heirs to Chaos AD-era Sepultura's cross pollinating throne, albeit with a massive, jarring does of 21st century death metal adding additional sonic bulk and braggadocio." Metal Hammer 8/10

"Dispensing mountain rattling shockwaves of pure, unfiltered death metal, hardcore, and groove, Whitechapel has been leading the charge of extreme metal acts onto the nation's bestsellers list." Outburn Magazine

"The gravitas instilled by the depth and dynamics of this release not only embolden. For they also find the band firmly beginning to eclipse the confines of a genre they unwittingly helped to pioneer." ThePRP.com

"Punishing, massive, and full of infectious anthems, Whitechapel is without a doubt, the band's strongest work to date" MetalSucks.net

"When metal historians look back at the era of deathcore, one band that will undoubtedly stand out from the rest is Whitechapel. On top of being one of the biggest acts in the scene, and also having probably helped sculpt the genre, the Tennessee six-piece are one of the few acts really giving the oft-dismissed sub-genre a stamp of credibility and their new, self-titled release promises to further solidify that."
