Latest The End News
Below is our complete The End news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Canadian quintet The End has completed work on their new full-length album for Relapse Records. The as-yet-untitled release was recorded at BWC Studios in Brampton, Ontario with producer Greg Dawson (Tiger Army). The End vocalist Aaron Wolff (the band is rounded out by guitarists Steve Watson and Andrew Hercules, bassist Sean Dooley and drummer Anthony Salajko) describes the record: "This is definitely a huge step for us in so many different ways. We tried a lot of new things that we have stayed far away from in the past, and also expanded on the ground that we have laid out in the past. Greg has been a close friend of the band since we started out so it was really easy for us to be able to express our thoughts to him and then work to make them reality."
"We are so happy with the sound of the record and totally excited about the new songs." Wolff continues: "We've spent the last year putting them together, and there is now physical proof of what we've been devoting our lives to. We knew what we wanted to do, and how we wanted to do it. And because we were able to explore new ideas, and work things out in the studio, we were able to do the songs justice this time." Post-production will commence this fall with a February 2007 release date expected.
Canadian quintet THE END has begun recording their new full-length album.
This as-of-yet-untitled release is being recorded at B.W.C. Studios in Brampton, Ontario with producer Greg Dawson. THE END vocalist Aaron Wolff (the band is rounded out by guitarists Steve Watson and Andrew Hercules, bassist Sean Dooley and drummer Anthony Salajko) describes the writing process: "There was a very conscience effort to create the album that people won't be able to predict, and won't get tired of. It's a record for metal heads, it's a record for hardcore kids, it's a record for rock n’ rollers. We're really focusing on exploring things that are very human, basic human emotions...The things that people try to hide and cover up but are still there no matter what is done to forget about it.....the kind anyone can relate to."
"We also felt the need to do things that are were out of the ordinary for ourselves as song writers, to keep things new and exciting and to make moves in directions we've never explored.” Wolff continues; "The result, is an extremely diverse record. Right from the first word we are pulling the listener inside the record. We truly feel that there is something in this record for anyone, as long as they are willing to let themselves forget about everything around them and focus on where the sound takes them. We are extremely happy with the progress we have made thus far."
The recording of the new album will wrap at summer's end and will be released in early 2007 on Relapse Records.
Even though they’ve only been home for a few short weeks The Black Dahlia Murder is about to head out for their fall headlining tour with Between the Buried and Me, Cephalic Carnage and label mates Into The Moat this Friday.

“We are very excited to remind you again about our upcoming tour with Cephalic Carnage, Between the Buried and Me and Into the Moat. All of these bands are awesome; but you don’t need me to tell you that. We can’t wait to see if you can all let your balls hang low.
