Seattle quartet IAMTHETHORN is the newest addition of the Goodfellow Records roster. The new band features an amalgamation of names that will be familiar to those that have followed the Northwest heavy music scene of the past ten years. Featuring Johnny Pettibone (Himsa, Nine Iron Spitfire, Genuine, Undertow) on vocals, Aaron Edge (Grievous, Hauler, Genuine, Harkonen, Himsa, Christ, Hellephant) on guitar and screams, Joe Axler (Skarp, Book of Black Earth, Splatterhouse) drumming and Jerad Shealey (Receder) on bass, the band plays a "frantic, pissed off, down-tuned style of metal that is influenced by bands such as Eyehategod, Crowbar, Integrity and new label-mates Cursed."

On February 20th, Goodfellow will release the debut CD by IAMTHETHORN, titled "You Are The Lamb." A five-song EP, song titles include "The Hunt And Beyond," "Becoming Death," "Cutman," "As The Night Rises" and "Crawling Over Them." A video for the track "The Hunt And Beyond" was recently shot by King of Hearts Productions. It can be viewed online now here.

Prior to the official release of "You Are The Lamb," the band will be doing a short tour in the Northwest during January with Behold. Here are the dates:

1/18 Seattle, WA @ West Seattle Legion Hall w/ Sinking Ships, more
1/19 Portland, OR @ Berbatis Pan
1/20 Bremerton, WA @ Sons Of Norway Hall
1/21 Olympia, WA @ TBA
