North Carolina five piece Curse Your Name has released the new album "Better Off Dead" this week to most digital outlets, with the CD version also available at CDbaby. This release is the the band's first since the self-titled album from 2008.
The band states that this work is a "goodbye letter to their family, friends and fans and seems to tell a tale that starts at the beginning of time and weaves it's way until the end of the Earth's destruction, filling in everything from broken relationships, to the loss of loved ones and murder in between.
"The songs on this CD much like the bands previous work seem to flirt with ideas of spirituality and the afterlife, all the while still maintaining splashes of heavy metal brutality along the way. Like much of Curse Your Name's work even back in the days when they were known as Cynder, the music on this disc delivers a somber mood while portraying an overall theme that 'there is a light at the end of the tunnel' and 'everything is going to be alright.' It may all sound cliché' but the group does a good job of tying it all in on this album, a feat that was somewhat lacking in their self titled release."
The album was produced by Curse Your Name and Ryan Helm at Helm's Deep Studios in Winston Salem, NC. "Better Off Dead" was astered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording Studios in Winston Salem, NC. You can check out the music video for "My Own Fire" below. More...

The management for North Carolina rock n roll five piece Curse Your Name have finally announced a release date for their highly anticipated, self-titled debut release as March 31st. The group has been working hard on this project since their stint on the widely popular MTV show "Battle For Ozzfest" under the band name "Cynder."
Vocalist Ryan Camp comments: "We feel that with the current state of the music business, it's in our best interest to go ahead and release this album on our own now and get it to the fans. We think they have waited long enough for this and we don't really want to have to rely on a label to help put this thing out. We believe that this album captures the sound that we have been looking for and we think that fans of our old stuff and new fans are really going to appreciate it."
Curse Your Name's new CD can be found online worldwide in all major digital music stores MARCH 31st.
