APHND Comments On State Of Record Industry

A Pale Horse Named Death - which features Sal Abruscato and Johnny Kelly - has been posting about the royalties received by bands and the difficulty of making a living as a musician at the band's Facebook profile.

A Pale Horse Named Death Issues Album Update

A Pale Horse Named Death has confirmed a late spring 2013 release for the follow-up to debut album "And Hell Will Follow Me" via SPV Records. The band has once again commissioned famed artist Sam Shearon AKA Mister-Sam (Rob Zombie, Fear Factory, Rammstein) to create the artwork for the as yet untitled album.

He continued, "The new album is a natural progression in song writing and vocals yet keeping continuity with the first album musically and artistically. Fans of our first album will find all the traits they love melded with even bigger production and mastering. Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound will be mastering the album."
