Dying Fetus Recording New Album To Be Released In 2012

John Gallagher, guitarist and vocalist of Dying Fetus, has announced that the group has entered the studio to record a new full length album. The band will once again be working with longtime producer Steve Wright (Slipknot, Misery Index) at Wrightway Studios in Baltimore, MD.

Set to be released in mid 2012 through Relapse Records, the album will feature nine tracks and is a "return to roots" with production focused slightly more on slam than in the band's last few works. Thematically, the album is set to be a good old-fashioned piece of social and political commentary in the style of Dying Fetus as we have come to know. An official release date and album title will be announced shortly.

"The last album had some groove in it," stated John, "but [it] was basically a lot of tech; this one is a return to form of older DYING FETUS albums, so to speak- more modern production though, of course." "Everything's tight," John adds; "...the sound is crushing, the drums are amazing."

Additionally, Dying Fetus announced a series of special South American shows set to take place in mid-January. The band has also been confirmed for next year's prestigious Maryland Deathfest and France's Hellfest. Upcoming tour dates are as follows:

January 11 Buenos Aires, Argentina @ Asbury Bar
January 12 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil @ Underground Cultural
January 13 Recife, Brazil @ Burburinho Bar
January 14 São Paulo, Brazil @ Manifesto Bar
January 15 Santiago, Chile @ Club 334
January 17 Bogota, Colombia @ TBA
January 18 Armenia, Colombia @ TBA
May 24 Baltimore, MD Sonar (as part of Maryland Death Fest 2012)

Very cool to hear they're going towards an older sound.
That last cover album wasn't bad, but the production on Descend Into Depravity was horrible. The songwriting was okay, but... production can be distracting.
