Archspire Signs To Trendkill Recordings

Trendkill Recordings has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Archspire:

"Trendkill Recordings is proud to announce the signing of Vancouver tech death metal outfit Archspire. Focusing on a fast, energetic and musically technical live show, Archspire boasts extended range guitars, and fretless bass. Their insanely precise and creative riffing, complete with supersonic shotgun vocals and velocious gravity blasting is already getting them compared to the likes of Origin, Decrepit Birth, Spawn Of Possession or fellow Canadians Beneath The Massacre.

"Archspire recorded their new album 'All Shall Align' between May and December 2010 at The Hive studios. Working with seasoned producer Stuart McKillop, the result is a fast, complex, and intricate example of what Archspire has to offer. Disjointed melodies and speeds that rival the band's influences, this taste of what Archspireis able to accomplish has already started a buzz in the worldwide metal community."

"All Shall Align" will be out on Trendkill Recordings in digital format on April 7th, 2011 followed by a limited digipack CD edition on April 14th in Europe and April 21st in North America.

Archspire Issues Activity Update

Archspire has checked in with the following update about the band's activity:

"Well, it's been a few months since I've updated our blog, so here's what's goin' on: we recently stepped into The Hive Studios, with legendary producer/engineer Stuart McKillop to finish up All Shall Align. As of this past Monday, December 13th 2010, we are now officially done tracking for the full length, something that this band has been working on for well over two years now. The new song, entitled 'Rapid Elemental Dissolve,' and the outro 'All Shall Align' bring the album to completion with a few things that we've definitely never done before. We are beyond excited to see what you guys think of the new stuff, as well as the remixed and remastered older tracks.

"As an added obstacle, Tobi Morelli has an encounter with an extremely sharp object just days before he was scheduled to track his guitar parts. Ten stitches to his left pinky finger, and a few days off from practice, Tobi decided to attempt playing all of his tracks as originally intended. We are all very grateful he escaped with only a fleshwound, however painful it may have been. He is currently letting his finger heal in order to have the stitches removed, and a smooth recovery is expected.

"We are in the middle of planning out some touring, hoping to head east and play with some excellent Canadian tech death bands we've been in touch with. We will hopefully have more information on an Archspire - Spring 2011 Canadian tour very soon. Let us know if you are in a band, and want to help, or know of someone who is booking shows at that time, we would love the support. More...
