The Divining Gives Update On Demo Recording

Philadelphia metal band The Divining is currently recording new demo material. Here's an update from the band:

"We've been gradually recording 3 new songs with Jeff at our practice spot and with Tommy Jones and Jeff at The Studio in Trenton, NJ. Drums and rhythm guitars are complete. Lead guitar should probably be done this week and I'll begin working on vocals this upcoming weekend. At this point I'm not sure exactly how long it will take for us to get it out since we're recording at our own studio we can spend a lot of time mixing and tweaking things as we get ideas, but we hope to have it out within a month or so."

The Divining Recording New Demos

The Divining issue the following update on their Myspace page:

"With a new practice spot/studio at our finger tips, we have spent the last few months writing new material that we hope to demo and release by spring. We are planning to record 3 or 4 new tracks for this effort and make it available to everyone for free online."

"In late 2006, we had signed to New Jersey based indie label 1x1 Music, which included full US distribution through Universal/Fontana. After spending months in the studio with Eric Rachel at Traxx East and Mike Cassel at Labyrinth Sound in NJ, our band was dealt a devastating blow at the hands of 1x1 Music's owner. As it turned out, this individual had been stealing large sums of money from his own company, resulting in the freezing of the accounts needed to release and promote our completed record. The label would become defunct, leaving many careers in limbo. At this point, we're not sure what will become of that material." More...

The Divining Sign To Dressed To Kill Records

Philadelphia’s The Divining have found a new record label to call home and they didn’t have to look beyond their own back yard to find their new dwelling. Philadelphia’s Dressed To Kill Records is proud to announce that they have signed The Divining.

The Divining have been an up-and-coming metal band since February 2003 and they combine several elements and styles of metal that give themselves one of the most distinctive sounds around. You can take a listen for yourself and download a song at their Pure Volume site.

The signing to Dressed To Kill Records should be a perfect fit for The Divining as both the label and the band defines the rugged, blue-collar work ethic that is embodied by the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia.

The Divining are currently recording with Vince Ratti at Skylight Studio for their up coming, yet to be titled full-length. This album is scheduled to be released during the summer of 2005. They also will be touring in support of the album and playing many regional dates until the release.

The Divining have already shared the stage with acts like Bleeding Through, Death by Stereo, Himsa as well as 3 Inches of Blood.
