Elysion Fields Signs With Innerstrength Records To Release "New Beginnings"

Innerstrength Records is pleased to announce the latest addition to its stable of artists: Chicago metal road warriors Elysion Fields, whose debut full-length album "New Beginnings" is slated for release on February 12th, 2013. The following press release was issued about the signing:

"As metal fans with an eye on the underground already know, Elysion Fields have spent the past few years pummeling the live scene as one of the genre’s worst-kept secrets, making their presence known on stages alongside marquee names like August Burns Red, MyChildren MyBride, We Came As Romans, Misery Index, and more. The band increased its profile by storming SXSW, where it played four showcases including the main stage at the heralded Full Metal Texas party. On a clear trajectory as a burgeoning metal powerhouse, Elysion Fields are taking the next logical step by launching a partnership with Innerstrength for the release of New Beginnings."

Vocalist Chris Fernandez comments, “We are very excited to be a part of the Innerstrength family. Since the beginning they have been very transparent about everything, and that is how business with a label should be done."

“Building a team around your band is an integral part to being successful,” adds guitarist and vocalist Josh Woods. “So many artists are quick to sign a contract with a label that doesn't even market their tours or promote their artists. Jason at Innerstrength was able to do just that while at the same time remaining open to what we want to do in regards to moving forward with both music creation and all business aspects.”

“With this album, we really wanted to touch on many different aspects of not only metal, but music in general, that we could. We use lots of guitar solos, breakdowns, and odd time signatures that are all staples of classic metal, but we also take pride in our carefully crafted choruses and melodic sections that really round out the songs,” says guitarist Scott Georgeson.

“We are all extremely proud of the music that we have put together on New Beginnings, and we are happy to be releasing this record with Innerstrength,” Fernandez adds. “This is just another dream come true for us and definitely is a new beginning for the band.”

Catch Elysion Fields on tour throughout the eastern U.S. with The Paramdeic (Bullet Tooth Records) starting October 26th. Following that, the band will embark on a run with It Lies Within (Luxor), culminating with a performance at OutRage Festival in Tyler, TX.
