With less than two weeks remaining until the release of debut album "Fall to the Sun," Psychothermia is giving the public the chance to check out a new single from the upcoming album.
The San Diego based metallers have teamed up with Noisecreep for an exclusive world premiere of the track "Slash & Burn." Get a first listen to the song right here. The following press release was also issued about the album:
"No strangers to persistence and long hours in the studio, the guys in Psychothermia know what it means to take matters into their own hands. Fall To The Rising Sun was self-produced and recorded in the band's home studio (Control Volume Studios) as well as engineered by the band members themselves. With the exception of 'Anarchy', which was mixed by the notorious Fred Archambault (producer/engineer, Avenged Sevenfold), all the songs were mixed by guitarist Jon Russo. 'I'd wake up after 15 hours in the studio, with my ears hurting, and have to go in and do it again... all while working around my jobs,' says Jon. One cannot question their dedication.
"Prior to April, 2012, all four members performed together in a previous group (Canobliss). Together in this group they achieved such accolades as three nominations for San Diego Music Awards; opening performances for legends Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Stone Sour, HellYeah, Biohazard, & more; as well as song placements on nearly 10 extreme sports and motorsports DVDs. They have already toured across much of the United States; with a fresh project and new album 'Fall To The Rising Sun' in their hands, Psychothermia is ready to catch the wind. The fire is real..."

Psychothermia's debut album "Fall To The Rising Sun" will be dropping on February 8th, 2013. "We kept seeing other bands using fake fire in their photos and videos, we just thought it would be bad-ass to do it for real," says guitarist Jon Russo.
Real is right. A stunt legend, an exhausting weekend, and a lot of burnt clothing later they walked away changed... the fumes may have proved inspiring. With the easy part over, the band headed into the studio to really let loose. An indescribable energy lurks within the four members and is released in songs like the title track "Fall To The Rising Sun."
"Stay one step ahead of yourself; stay one step ahead of the competition; always strive to better yourself... and if you don't, you fall to the rising sun. Fate will catch up with you," timely words from singer Johan Maldonado as he explains the meaning behind the title.
Personal experiences play a large part in the writing found on the album, and nowhere is this more apparent than "Warbly." Bassist Chenzo Vidalez explains "I'm all about family and being loyal to friends. This song is about a deep betrayal. I was on a motorcycle trip where I caught a friend in a lie... tension escalated and it got to the point where I feared for my life. My instincts kept telling me if I stayed there someone was going to die." More...
