The Demonstration Working on Third Album

Metalcore act The Demonstration is hard at work on their third studio album. Their second, "Accidents with Intelligence," was released in 2008 (click here for the MU review).

The as yet untitled full length is slated to be released in the fall of 2010, with recording being done over the summer. The official press release is as follows:

"We are currently working on our third full-length record right now and everything is coming together. We've spend quite a bit of time on this record, and have been taking a slightly different approach. Accidents With Intelligence was written in a very short amount of time following our signing with Mediskare. This time around we are taking our time, experimenting with some different styles, tunings, and directions both vocally and musically. The demo we posted yesterday because we just wanted to get something new out there, and we tired of hearing about lady gaga, haha. Jameson and David have been writing music and we have several songs for this new record finished. The demo we posted as a trial has a slightly different feel that what Demonstration fans are used to, but trust us, you can expect the traditional sound elements that you're used to hearing from us threaded throughout this next record as well as some new stuff that you might not expect from us. We are taking our time on this one to give our fans the best album we can that shows our progression from Accidents. Expect some elements that you're used to from us, but also expect a move aggressive, heavy, yet melodically sound record from us in 2010!"
