Withered has sent the following update on their recording and touring efforts:
“We’re hard at work on the new album,” entitled ‘Folie Circulaire,’ says Atlanta’s WITHERED. “Preproduction has begun and we’re entering the studio on Feb. 23 with producer and friend Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness, Black Tusk). Some things worth mentioning: There will be a guest vocal appearance by Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway of Napalm Death and we’re recording a cover of Necrophobic’s ‘Into Armageddon.’ WITHERED is finally spreading the darkness to the West Coast and Southwest, too. And, we’re doing it solo! We’re bringing new merch as well. See all you west coast people in about a month!”
"Folie Circulaire" is the follow-up to 2005’s critically-acclaimed "Memento Mori," and will be the band’s Prosthetic Records debut. Tentatively scheduled for a May release, more information will be available shortly. An unnamed demo song from "Folie Circulaire," along with previous material, is available on WITHERED’s official MySpace page.

Prosthetic Records has announced Atlanta's WITHERED as the latest addition to the label's ranks. The band's forthcoming effort, "Folie Circulaire," is scheduled for a late-spring release and will be produced by Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness, Black Tusk) through Prosthetic. "We're very excited to start this new chapter for Withered by joining the Prosthetic Records family," guitarist/vocalist Mike Thompson says. "We've put a lot of time and consideration into deciding which label we wanted to work with for our next album and Prosthetic have really proven their commitment to WITHERED's music and metal in general. It can be difficult to find a label that understands your band AND has the resources to help cultivate your music without compromising it. This is a natural step for Withered and we are quite eager to contaminate and disgrace everything Prosthetic Records has to offer."
The band's previous release, 2005's "Memento Mori," garnered critical acclaim and took WITHERED on the road with the likes of Mastodon, High On Fire, Dismember, Grave, Vital Remains, 1349, as well as new labelmates Skeletonwitch in the summer of 2007. A rough demo version of a song from "Folie Circulaire" is currently available on the band's MySpace page, along with several tracks from "Memento Mori."

Scheduled to kick off their East Coast tour tomorrow, Sept. 30, in Bedford, NH with Dismember, Grave, Demiricous and Withered, Vital Remains was notified yesterday that they were not welcome to perform at the first show. Vital’s guitarist, Tony Lazaro states, “We were scheduled to play with Grave and Dismember up at Mark’s Place in Bedford, NH but the promoter booted us from the show. He said since we are ‘affiliated’ with the ‘evil’ Glen Benton that he wanted nothing to do with us. I guess he had heard what happened at the Deicide show in TX, heard he sang for us on our last record and is gonna sing for us on this next one and was worried that, I don’t know, we’d be sacrificing children of something. We told him that Glen wasn’t even going to be on this tour with us. I think he’s sitting home in FL right now ready to go out on the road with Deicide. The guy didn’t even care. We are guilty by association! We’re sorry to anyone up there who was planning on seeing us. We’ll try and get up there soon, we just need to find a promoter who isn’t afraid of us, and by the way, everyone knows we sacrifice goats on stage, not children. Metal”
Scheduled to record the follow up to 2003’s Dechristianize this winter, Vital Remains has already announced that Glen Benton will be returning to record vocals for the new album. Re-released this spring was the band’s Horrors Of Hell compilation which contains the band’s early demo recordings.

VITAL REMAINS are gearing up to corrupt the Atlantic Seaboard. Heading out with Dismember, Grave, Demiricous and Withered the tour starts in Bedford, NH and ends in Montreal, Canada. Fueling the band’s inferno, the raging line-up will include mainman Tony Lazaro (guitar), Dave Suzuki (guitar), Anthony Geremia (vocals), Necrotorture’s Antonio Donadeo (drums), and Ron Green (bass).
“Just checking in with everyone right before Vital hits the road again,” mainman Lazaro commented yesterday, “Going out with Dismember and Grave is going to be killer! These are two great old school death metal bands that really helped define the Swedish Death Metal sound. A brutal assault; Death Metal the way it was meant to be, fast and heavy!!
“I know people have been wondering about the new record…well, it’s just about 100% written. More importantly, it looks like Mr. Benton is going to be doing vocals for us once again! We were able to work around Deicide’s crazy touring schedule, and we’ll be hitting the studio by the end of the year. We’ll keep you posted on all the info and if you haven’t already, go pick up Deicide’s Stench of Redemption…it’s an amazing record. Hope to see everyone in the underground come out and as always, thanks for the support! LET THE KILLING BEGIN!” -I-ony666
