Below is our complete Within The Ruins 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.
Massachusetts act Within the Ruins will be shooting two music videos for new tracks "Feeding Frenzy" and "New Holy War" this weekend to support a new record coming out next month. The band has tapped director Kevin J. Custer to take the helm. Guitarist Joe Cocchi adds his own comments:
"These two songs are the best representation of the new album as a whole. We chose a very melodic/groove oriented song (Feeding Frenzy) which is something this album has a lot more of. The other (New Holy War) displays our more familiar fast paced and to-the-point sound and lyrically focusing on religion.
"With Kevin's help we've come up with two pretty kick ass ideas. Two back to back days of shooting will require tremendous amounts of alcohol, so we are looking for a beer sponsor as well. Just kidding, but not really."
"Elite" will be released on February 26th, 2013 via eOne / Good Fight Music. The track listing is as follows:
3. Feeding Frenzy
4. New Holy War
5. The Charm
6. Ataxia II
8. I, Blashpheme
9. Absolute Hell

Within the Ruins has issued the following announcement about missing tonight's show in Las Vegas:
"Las Vegas, NV we are sorry to announce that due to our trailer axle breaking we will not be able to make the show tonight at The Sanctuary. Adestria, Erra, and the all the other bands will still be performing so please go and support them. We are super bummed about this and we will make it up to you guys as soon as we can!"
According to Michael Caine's character in the film, "The Dark Knight," some men just want to watch the world burn. In the world of heavy metal, that's kind of a cool line. Actually, that's a really cool line. It's not even that far from the truth for some bands. Some bands like to express their disenchantment with the world and how they'd like to snuff it out like a cigarette butt. Others like to reflect the world in their music, showing it for what it is without passing judgment. Some bands take it one step further and command that we change the world. Impending Doom is not one of them.
On the evening of July 6th, Impending Doom brought back to Nashville's Rocketown a different message: Change yourself. Disregard the world, because it will fail you. Some bands just want to tell you that the world will burn and you shouldn't be part of it. As it turns out, during my interview with vocalist Brook Reeves and some of the band before the show, Impending Doom is about as literal about that as can be. They were joined by fellow bands Within The Ruins, Erra, The Plot In You, and To Each His Own. More...

Justin Lowe (guitars) states: “We're all super happy to announce that we are going to quit drinking for a couple days and write a new album. There is no telling what it is going to sound like, because it is hasn't been recorded yet. However, one thing we can say, is that it will be an AFTER THE BURIAL album because we will be the ones performing on the record, and that is the name of our band. Ok, now seriously!
"We are really excited to have the opportunity to get back into the studio to complete a new album by early next spring. It will be just in time for us to hit the road with our friends in Whitechapel. We'll be doing the usual pre-production videos here and there, so make sure you stop by our Facebook page here for plenty of updates. See you all soon.”
