"The package is wild as well! We're stoked to bring our new friends Thy Art is Murder over for direct support. They are insane heavy and very fun to listen to. Betraying the Martyrs is an epic band and have been our long time friends. We couldn't be happier to have them with us again. Also, coming along is Within the Ruins and Erra, to round off what I think is gonna be quite an awesome evening of heavy ass music. We look forward to seeing you all again this fall and don't miss out." More...

Born of Osiris has now released new album "Tomorrow We Die Alive," and the band will also spend this fall on tour across North America with label mates Periphery, Dead Letter Circus, and Twelve Foot Ninja. See dates below.
Check out the band's new music video for the track "Machine" after the jump, which was filmed live at the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival in Detroit, MI.
Lee McKinney (guitars) states: “Wow, we recently wrapped up the RockStar Energy Mayhem Festival tour and this was one of the best summers of my life and easily my favorite tour we've ever done. Everything about the festival is so smooth and relaxed. We got to play to bigger crowds than ever, make new fans that wouldn't normally get to see us and we were out there playing new music from our new record. The whole summer just had so much excitement to it. The new material was going over insanely well, most of the time even better than our old material.
"The new disc, Tomorrow We Die Alive, to me is the record that we always should have put out. It has such a fresh and alive feeling to it. We had the live atmosphere in mind when we were writing it, too. I think for that reason this is gonna be the first record where people can come see us and hear a ton of new music. This record is just straight heavy beginning to end with some of my favorite melodic parts, and some of my favorite moods/atmospheres. I also really love what Ronnie and Joe are doing vocally with this one, it's been another great way to pack in as much melody and feeling as possible. We're getting ready for our CD release show at Reggie's in Chicago and it's impossible to decide which songs we are going to play off the new record because we want to play them all.
“Please go pick-up Tomorrow We Die Alive as we have never been more proud of anything we've created. We can't wait to hear what you all think of it and thanks for all of your continued support. See you all very soon." More...

Misha Mansoor (guitars) states: “We have been having a hard time keeping the details of our upcoming headlining tour package under-wraps because of how excited we are about it. This is mainly because for this trek we will be joined by Born of Osiris, Dead Letter Circus and Twelve Foot Ninja. We felt that having those three bands would add some nice variety, virtuosity and of course virility to the package.
“We will be doing some different tiered VIP packages for this headliner as well, with more specific details on those in the coming weeks. You should make it out to a show because we have not one, but two, Australian bands on this package and we all know what a rarity that is. Also, this will be the last tour on this current album cycle for us, so we won't be back around for awhile. See ya there.” More...

Look for the band performing on this summer's Rockstar Mayhem Festival, which kicks off this Sat, June 29th. Lee McKinney (guitars) states:
"We couldn't be more excited to not only have a new record coming out this summer, but to have a new single available in time for the start of Mayhem Fest! 'Machine' to me is just a straight up in your face Born of Orisis song. It's got an epic intro, intense orchestral content, heavy keyboard breakdowns, a great structure, impactful vocals and of course some gnarly guitar shred. It definitely hits hard from beginning to end. We can't wait to head out and play it live all summer long." More...
Born of Osiris will be entering the studio to begin tracking a new effort next week on April 1st, and the band will kick off a worldwide touring cycle to support the release later this summer on the massive Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. For additional information stay tuned to the band's Facebook profile.
Lee McKinney (guitars) states: “We're excited to announce we'll be entering the studio April 1st to begin the recording process for this record. We will be tracking with Nick Sampson (Asking Alexandria), and Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Emmure) will be handling the mixing process. We are very excited to be working with these guys.
“As for the album's content, we're gonna be doing 6 string and 7 string songs on the same recording for the first time ever. Aside from that, we've been more focused for this record than any of the previous. We've had 2+ years to write, critique, adjust and learn these songs, which is just something we haven't had in the past with our intense touring schedule. Like the last album (The Discovery), we've been living and writing this album together and it's made for the best, most focused Born of Osiris album to date.
“What makes this release even more special to us is the fact that we'll be releasing it on the one and only Rockstar Energy Mayhem Tour this summer. We get to share the stage with some of the biggest and most talented names in metal. There's no other better way to possibly start this record cycle. We will see you all soon.”
