This 10-song album follows the band’s 2013 album "Augment," which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album Chart. "Drift" was recorded with producer Nick Sampson in late 2015 and features new vocalist JT Cavey (Texas in July).
Of the line-up change, vocalist/guitarist Jesse Cash said, "It was extremely stressful and difficult. Ian's a very good friend of ours. He knew the limitations of his voice though, and understood why the band had to make the necessary change. The departure was an amicable one."

Sumerian Records marks its 10 year anniversary with a four week tour featuring five of the Los Angeles labels’ bands: Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, After The Burial, Erra and Bad Omens.
“Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya and After The Burial have all played a crucial role in the new wave of progressive, heavy music and in the pedigree of Sumerian,” said label founder, Ash Avildsen.
Ash goes on to say, “They are some of the most genuine, hard-working and talented musicians I have had the privilege to work with. I vividly remember first seeing all three of them play together at a tiny legion hall in a small Illinois town when Sumerian was less than a year old and they were all unsigned. I can proudly say that without Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya and After The Burial together on the label, Sumerian would not have become the entity it is today. I am honored to have this Midwest menagerie carrying the 10 Year Tour and excited for our newcomers Erra and Bad Omens. Thank you to all of the fans who support the bands and the music. Without you, none of this would be possible. See you in the pit.” More...
TesseracT will return to North America for a healthy batch of tour dates slated for later this year. The band has tapped The Contortionist as main support along with Erra and Skyharbor.
"Five years ago we bundled ourselves in to a van and set off on our debut North American tour," says bassist Amos Williams. "It was not only our North American debut but also our first major tour, really."
Dates will kick off on November 2nd at the Theater for Living Arts in Philadelphia and run coast to coast making a few stops in Canada before wrapping things up at Irving Plaza in New York City on December 7th. Tickets will go on sale Friday, August 21 at 10:00 local time.
"We're beyond excited to announce that we're touring with TesseracT," says The Contortionist vocalist Mike Lessard. "They're a band we've always wanted to tour with, so it will be nice to share the road with them finally. This tour is a must see for any progressive fan!"
Williams comments again on that first North American run, where the band originally supported Devin Townsend, "We were lucky enough to be supporting the incredible DTP, from whom we learned how to project and perform. It was an experience that none of us will ever forget. Everything about it was intense, from the traveling in a tiny van, or squeezing the whole band into a single Motel 6 room, through to the stunning crowds, and wonderful friends we made. So, a little over 5 years later it is an awesome feeling to return to the US and Canada to headline a tour with that same line up that traveled all the miles, and worked so hard to get TesseracT to where it is today."

We may be the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast - the operative word being “metal” - but that doesn't mean we’re above shamelessly promoting some “FedoraCore” when it suits our interests.
That’s right, boys and girls: this week we’re launching another ticket giveaway for Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, FL. In addition to The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence and friends on Monday, October 13th, we invite you to check out Attila, Crown The Empire, and Like Moths To Flames on Friday, November 14th.
If interested, submit an email to email@example.com with one (or both) of the headlining bands in the subject heading, and your full name matching your ID in the email body. Listen in with bated breath as co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) fills in the rest of the details.
Next, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) offers a gushing sneak-peek reaction to one of the year’s most anticipated metal albums: “The Singularity (Phase I - Neohumanity)” by Swedish death-prog powerhouse Scar Symmetry. He’s convinced it will monopolize many a year-end favorites list, and urges fans (Kevin included) who may have lost interest after the loss of former superhuman vocalist Christian Alvestam to reconsider. The latter incarnation of Scar Symmetry has truly come into its own. The first of a planned concept trilogy, “Neohumanity” drops in North America on Tuesday, October 14th.
Finally, in another round of his “Miami Metalhead Problems” saga, Kevin relates an epic personal concert misadventure involving the bands Erra and Reflections. We’ve all had them, we’ve all struggled and bled to make it to see our favorite bands, and every now and then, something unique and memorable occurs along the way that we wouldn’t have traded for all the well-timed, well-organized shows in the world.
Born Of Osiris will cap off 2014 with a North American headlining tour alongside Thy Art Is Murder, Betraying The Martyrs, Within The Ruins, and Erra in the support slots.
The trek kicks off on October 10th and wraps up November 8th, with full details available below. Born Of Osiris' Lee McKinney (guitars) states:
"We're all crazy excited about this upcoming headliner. This tour will wrap up the Tomorrow We Die Alive album cycle, which has been by far our most successful yet. Born Of Osiris fans can expect the longest and most diverse set we've played on any U.S. tour.
"The package is wild as well! We're stoked to bring our new friends Thy Art is Murder over for direct support. They are insane heavy and very fun to listen to. Betraying the Martyrs is an epic band and have been our long time friends. We couldn't be happier to have them with us again. Also, coming along is Within the Ruins and Erra, to round off what I think is gonna be quite an awesome evening of heavy ass music. We look forward to seeing you all again this fall and don't miss out." More...
Alabama outfit Erra has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with the band's vocalist:
"It has been rumored in the last few months that our frontman Garrison was leaving the band. Those rumors were actually true. Garrison had a great job opportunity come up back in March.
"We could tell for a while that his heart wasn't in it like it used to be, so we all talked about it and mutually decided that it was the right thing to do. There was no bad blood or tension in this conversation. As a matter of fact, he did 2 more tours with us after that conversation until we were able to find the right guy to fill the new vocalist spot (the Veil of Maya & Texas in July tours)
"So now that you're up to speed on the sad news, the good news is that we just finished recording a new EP with our new vocalist, Ian Eubanks.
"Ian has been one of our best friends from Birmingham for years now, and we hope that you trust us when we say that there is absolutely no one more qualified to fill the spot as our vocalist as Ian is. We've heard the new mixes and are extremely confident that Erra fans will be completely satisfied and accepting of this new addition to the band... (no seriously, you'll love it haha). More...

Vocalist JT Cavey, who performed with Texas In July on a run with The Devil Wears Prada and on the Vans Warped Tour this past summer, was just recently announced as an official member of Texas In July. The band’s announcement and introduction to Cavey can be found below. Texas In July’s new album will be out later this year on Equal Vision Records.
“Going into this next run with JT being officially announced is extremely exciting. It's something that has been long awaited on our end, as well as our fans. We now have the opportunity to really share the new and improved TIJ, and what a better way than touring all throughout Canada and the US,” shares bassist Texas In July Ben Witkowski. “We’re really looking forward to meeting and talking with fans along the road about our recent changes! April can’t come any sooner!”
Cavey adds, "It is impossible to express my excitement to begin this tour through words, so I will channel my passion, as I have before, through my performances. I know we, as a band, have been longing to show old and new fans what the new Texas In July line-up is all about. We want to leave every pair of eyes and ears with a whole new intensity and fulfillment that you have never experienced from us before." More...
