Unearth Streaming Entire New Album

Alternative Press is hosting a worldwide album premiere of Unearth's upcoming "Darkness In The Light" full-length, which is scheduled to hit North American record shelves on July 5th, 2011 via Metal Blade Records. Head over here to check out the album.

The 11-track long player was recorded at Zing Studios in Westfield, Massachusetts with producer (and Killswitch Engage guitarist) Adam Dutkiewicz and mixed at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Trivium, et al). Sitting in on drums during the recording was Justin Foley (Killswitch Engage/Blood Has Been Shed).

Comments vocalist Trevor Phipps of the record: "This album is without a doubt some of the heaviest, most dynamic and memorable tunes we've ever written. The disc is littered with the shred 'n' stomp-filled songs our fans would expect from us, as well as some added vocal hooks, guitar melodies, guitar solos and some different paths taken in style and structure. We knew we had to continue to separate ourselves from the pack and to cement our place in the heavy metal world as one of the leaders and not as one of the many followers that seem to hop on the trend wagon and give up so easily when the going gets hard. We are here to stay and collectively we couldn't be any more fired up to play these songs around the world for our fans new and old. So check it out, spread the word of underground metal and leave some feedback. See you on the road!" More...

Unearth Streaming New Track "Watch It Burn"

Lambgoat.com is currently hosting the premiere of "Watch It Burn," the opening track off Unearth's forthcoming "Darkness In The Light" full-length. Vocalist Trevor Phipps comments:

"'Watch It Burn' is the lead track from Darkness In The Light because we felt it captured the aggression and heaviness of the album while also staying true to our core sound from our earlier records. This is one of the only tunes without a guitar solo, but the harmonies are there to mix around one of the heaviest choruses we've ever written. The song is angry, fast and in-your-face while also allowing for a melodic bridge late in the song much like some of our older material. Lyrically, it is an anti-extremist song.

"It attacks both the left and right of the political spectrum while also calling into question extremist religious groups and their influence on our culture. All these political and religious extremists seem to manage to do is splinter society and turn people against each other that otherwise likely wouldn't be at odds. Basically we can put aside some meager differences and work to better ourselves or we can keep heading down this destructive path and eventually 'Watch It Burn.'"

To hear "Watch It Burn," point your browser to this location. The band also previously uploaded the song "Ruination of the Lost" online, with details available here.

"Darkness In The Light" is sheduled for release in North America on July 5th via Metal Blade Records, and the 11-track long player was recorded at Zing Studios in Westfield, Massachusetts with producer/Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz and mixed at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Trivium, et al).

Unearth Posts New Song Online

MetalSucks.net is currently hosting the worldwide premiere of Unearth's "Ruination Of The Lost," the second track off the band's upcoming "Darkness In The Light" full-length. You can check out the song by heading over here. The band also recently posted another song online titled "Eyes of Black," which can be found at this location.

Commented vocalist Trevor Phipps: "'Ruination Of The Lost' is a pummeling front end album song that showcases our mix of both American and European metallic influences with an apocalyptic lyrical theme. Buz [McGrath] and Ken [Susi] both rip some serious guitar solos in the tune and their guitar harmonies are hauntingly catchy. This one is a high energy shredder while lyrically it speaks about the end of the human race in the not so distant future if we continue to destroy our planet with the current level of disregard year after year.

"It's hard for me to understand why people still let money and politics interfere with any real positive change even with the warning signs Mother Nature has given us. The title of the song refers to the self-destructive nature of the human race and how we are collectively so lost in our lust for money and power that we are destroying the world that gave us life in the first place."

Unearth To Be Joined By Former Drummer

Unearth has announced that it will be rejoined by drummer Derek Kerswill for a one-off show in tribute to former band bassist Chris 'Rover' Rybicki, who passed away at the hands of an alleged drunk driver this past September. The show will take place at Saint Michaels Hall in Lynn, MA on February 19th. The band commented on the gig by saying:

"In an effort to keep the focus on recording our new album and to show everyone that we are still indeed friends with our former drummer Derek Kerswill and that our split was solely because of 'creative differences,' we have decided that he is the best fit to play drums for us at Roverfest this Saturday night.

"Both the band and Derek agree that this was the best way to end our chapter together while also paying tribute to our fallen friend and former bassist Chris 'Rover' Rybicki. So if you are attending the show on Saturday at St. Michaels Hall in Lynn, you will get a chance to see our last gig with Kerswill."

Unearth Recording New Album

Unearth has begun tracking the new album at Zing Studios in Westfield, MA. The band is currently tracking drums with sit in drummer for the album, Justin Foley of Killswitch Engage/Blood Has Been Shed. "Foley was an obvious choice for this album for many reasons, but mainly because of his abilities and knowledge of heavy music as well as his long time friendship with the band," comments Trevor Phipps. "A decade plus of friendship has made this an easy transition for the band, Foley and our producer/engineer Adam D."

In other news, the band has decided to change the mixing engineer for the album to Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, White Chapel, Devil Driver, Trivium, etc...) from Audiohammer Studios.

Guitarist Buz McGrath added this irrelevant comment about working with Mark, "Mark Lewis mixed me a drink once and i woke up in a swamp covered in anti freeze."

Unearth is aiming for a mid to late June release for the album followed by a world tour.

Unearth Parts With Drummer

Unearth has issued the following announcement about parting ways with drummer Derek Kerswill:

"After three plus years of touring the world together and playing on our latest album 'The March,' we have parted ways with drummer Derek Kerswill. The most notable reason for the split are the creative differences. The time has come for Unearth to write a new album and creating music with a tight unit is the only way we can assure the best collection of songs possible. The differences between Kerswill and the band started off as subtle, but became increasingly obvious over the past few months and it was time for both parties to go their separate ways.

"We have shared a ton of great experiences and achieved many of the goals we set for ourselves in the time he was in the band. There is no ill will from either side of this decision and we wish him only the best moving forward. Unearth won't skip a beat, though, as we will be announcing a replacement drummer for our upcoming European stint on the Persistence Tour shortly. Lastly some exciting plans are coming together for the recording to the follow up to 'The March' sometime early in 2011."

"Creative differences are real and unfortunately have gotten the best of me. I wish the guys luck in the future and thank you to everyone who ever loved + supported 'The March'," Kerswill stated.
