Underlined Signs With Standby Records To Release New LP "Deadtime Stories"

South Florida’s, Underlined, has signed a worldwide recording deal with Standby Records - home to Black Veil Brides, Modern Day Escape, Hopes Die Last and Picture Me Broken. The band recently finished recording its debut LP, "Deadtime Stories," at Cleveland’s, Studio D Productions, with producer Don Debiase, which is scheduled to be released this fall.

“Underlined is by far the perfect definition of ‘Rock N’ Roll 2.0,’ which is why we couldn’t be more excited to be the conduit to spread their destruction to the world,” said Standby Records owner, Neil Sheehan. “It’s been almost two decades since bands like Mushroomhead and Slipknot redefined the incorporation of theatrics with punishing metal. No one has done this significantly since...until now.”

As an introduction to Underlined’s destructive force, the band has released the first song from Deadtime Stories, “The Suffering.” A still video showcasing the band’s bizarre look, as well as “The Suffering,” can be found below or at the band's website.

Mixing modern day power with the electronic haze reserved in the past for powerhouse bands like Ministry, Underlined is poised to show a new generation of fans just how punishing the next wave of masked heavy metal bands can be.

“I believe that our contortion of already iconic imagery will only assist us in the carving out of our path in the entertainment industry,” said Underlined frontman, H7. “While the use of make-up, body paint, masks, costuming and special effects are surely nothing new, I damn well know that we're a perfect ‘horror metal’ band of sorts, for all horror movie buffs, metal or industrial music fans and mental patients alike.”

While many may look to label Underlined as a clone band, the group has received support from some of the genre’s biggest bands. For Deadtime Stories, the band recruited ex-Chimaira drummer, Andols Herrick, and solicited guest appearances from Mushroomhead’s Waylon Reavis and Skinny Felton on the track “Personal Demons in the Void.”

But Underlined’s deep industrial metal pedigree doesn’t end there. The band tapped Kem Secksdiin of Subkulture, (ex-Celldweller and Crossbreed) to provide programming and electronics on Deadtime Stories, and lastly, ex-Marilyn Manson keyboardist, Madonna Wayne Gacy (aka Pogo), was brought on to provide remixing services for the first single, “The Suffering.”

Underlined’s over-the-top post-apocalyptic imagery - falling somewhere between Mortal Kombat, comic book villains, and the fifth circle of hell - and brutal industrial metal sound is surely guaranteed to help the band work its way into the hearts, heads and record collections of metal fans around the world. Stay tuned for more information on Underlined and "Deadtime Stories."
