BIRDS OF PREY has inked a deal with Relapse Records to release its debut album, Weight of the Wound.

BIRDS OF PREY is a studio project featuring the creative collective of Erik Larson (ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY) and Bo Leslie (THE LAST VAN ZANT / ex-THROTTLEROD) on guitars, Summer Welch (BARONESS) on bass, Dave Witte (BURNT BY THE SUN, MUNICIPAL WASTE) on drums and Ben Hogg (BEATEN BACK TO PURE) on vocals. The quintet holed up at the Karma Productions studio in Richmond, VA with Cory Smoot (aka Flatus Maximus of GWAR) this past December to record Weight of the Wound.

Leslie comments; "”Excited" isn't a very kvlt, true, or metal thing to say, but I'm excited to be a part of the Birds Of Prey and I am waaaaaayyy into "Weight Of The Wound" being a Relapse release. We set out with the intentions of writing and recording an "old school" type record and this is what came out. Hope y'all dig it, and to quote MORRIAH, let the sword descend.”

Weight of the Wound is expected to see a late July 2006 release date.
