Anterior Announces New Album Details

Anterior is currently readying to unveil "Echoes Of The Fallen," the U.K. based band's second full-length album. Set for release in G/A/S on August 26th, in Europe on August 29th and North America on September 13th via Metal Blade Records, the 10-track long player was recorded at Grindstone Studios through 2011 with Scott Atkins producing.

Anterior guitarist Leon Kemp comments:

"That's right! The new album is finally here and we cannot wait for you guys to hear it! We've been hard at it for the past few months with producer Scott Atkins at Grindstone Studios and I must say the tracks are sounding massive. I feel we've really found our sound on this album. It's been quite a while since our last release and we've matured a lot as a band, especially with the addition of some new members.

"We've managed to retain all the great aspects of our first album 'This Age Of Silence' and improve on them. The songs are more concise than before and we've really worked on making each song as strong as it can possibly be. We haven't settled for anything less, and at times it's been tough working to the benchmark we set ourselves, but it's brought the best out in everyone and after hearing the finished product it's definitely been worth it. We've had a phenomenal reaction to some of the new tracks we've played live and we can't wait for this album to drop, we are sure you guys are gonna love it! And if you can't wait to hear some new songs then get your asses to Sonisphere, we'll be ripping out a few new tunes for you guys!"

The "Echoes Of The Fallen" track listing is as follows:

1. To Live Not Remain
2. Blood In The Throne Room

Anterior Checks In From The Studio

Anterior has begun recording the follow up to 2007's "This Age Of Silence" at Grindstone Studios with Scott Atkins (Stampin' Ground, Sylosis, Gamma Bomb, Man Must Die). James Britton has now provided the following update about the recording process:

"Hey guys n dolls, thought I would entice your cream buds with a studio update! I have recently finished tracking the bass to the new AnterioR record and now with the completion of drums, 4000 rhythm guitars, bass and some lead lines it sounds more pleasing than Brazilian fart porn! Not to much to say about the bass really, only that with the help of Scott Atkins at the helm we got a sound so heavy and nasty that it would actually make Satan weep! Scott has been a great help with this new album and has really brought out the best in us and in the new songs.

"From my personal view I would say the songs on the new record are definitely more driven and more aggressive but with bigger melodies than found on 'This age of silence.' It is a natural progression from our first album and has some different edges that we felt needed exploring to keep things fresh. This has also been influenced by the gap between the albums and how our music taste has matured and varied during this time. Leon and Nixon are currently putting all of the lead work on the album as we speak and it sounds more epic than a weed cloud full of free Johnnie Walker and hookers! The main thing is that we are all extremely happy with the way things are sounding and literally cannot wait to unleash this beast on the planet.

"We will be playing mostly new songs on our upcoming Metal Hammer Razor Tour in February so make sure to get to a show and provide yourself with an eargasm! In a recent review, someone actually said ‘Has the interest died down too much over the past few years, or can Anterior reignite a withering flame? I can openly say that, it has been a few years and line up changes but, with the power and aggression of these new songs, the line up we have now, and the new found drive, fuck the withering flame, we will be setting fire to everything in sight! Love, sex wee and some cliche metal saying."

Anterior also has the following upcoming tour dates with Sylosis, Bleed From Within, and While She Sleeps:

15/02/11 – UK – Southampton – Joiners
16/02/11 – UK – Bristol – Thekla
17/02/11 – UK – Cardiff – Clwb Ifor Bach
18/02/11 – UK – Exeter – Cavern Club
19/02/11 – UK – Birmingham – HMV Institute
21/02/11 – UK – Manchester – Academy 3
22/02/11 – UK – York – The Duchess
23/02/11 – UK – Glasgow – Cathouse

Anterior Enters The Studio

Welsh act Anterior has entered the studio to record the band's follow-up to the 2007 album "This Age of Silence." The band issued the following statement:

"That's right! We have entered the studio to start drum tracking for the second Anterioralbum! We started production at Grindstone Studios with Scott Atkins (Stampin' Ground, Sylosis, Gamma Bomb, Man Must Die) at the helm. The fact that we have finally entered the studio to record our second album is an achievement in itself! After so many problems and having multiple things stacked against us we came through it all, finished an album, got a new drummer, and now it's time to get things right!

"We are currently recording our second as yet untitled album due for an early 2011 release and to say that we are as excited about it as kids are at Xmas would be a gross understatement. We feel that the songs are so much stronger and that we have matured as a band since 'This Age Of Silence' and we are bursting for you to hear it!

"We will be posting video updates on our official YouTube channel as the recording advances. We feel that this album will definitely show that we have our strongest line-up ever and will mark a great return for us. We plan to make 2011 the busiest time we have ever had. We expect to be touring relentlessly and hitting some new places so be afraid, be very afraid! More...

Anterior Announces New Drummer

British metal outfit Anterior has announced that they have found a permanent drummer in newcomer James Cook. A message from the band reads as follows:

"After a long time searching we have finally found a new drummer. If any of you saw us play in December the fine gentlemen behind the kit will now be joining the band full time. We would like to welcome James Cook into the band and are very excited to see what he adds to the fold. He did a great job on our December tour with only a few rehearsals beforehand. He is a great guy and an exceptional musician.

"On this note we are still writing for the album and cannot wait to see what James can add to the new material. We will be going into the studio in a few months time to record our second album to be released later this year on Metal Blade Records.

"Thank you all for your love and support, we hope to see you on the road very soon. Keep checking back for updates."

Anterior Issues Recording Update

”We have had lots of people asking about what we are doing and when you guys n girls will hear something new so here's a quick update.

We are still writing for the forthcoming album, we will be releasing updates regarding the new album's title, track listing, etc. over the coming months and we are hoping to record in September/October time with the beastly metal producer extraordinaire, Mr. Scott Atkins.

That's about all we can reveal right now but rest assured we are working on some cool stuff and new things which can only mean greater things for Anterior in the future.

Thanks you for your patience and we will be updating this regularly over the coming months regarding the new album. Also, you can now follow us on twitter, facebook and last.fm, just click the links on the profile that the lovely people at rightclick studios built us.”
