Earth Crisis Signs With Candlelight Records, Working On New Album

Candlelight Records proudly announces the worldwide signing of Earth Crisis. The Syracuse-based band, featuring vocalist Karl Buechner, guitarists Scott Crouse and Erick Edwards, bassist Ian Edwards, and drummer Dennis Merrick, is currently writing and demoing material for a ninth studio album. Recording is expected to begin in June. Candlelight also comments on the band:

"No hardcore or metal fan can be unaware of Earth Crisis or the contributions the band has made to heavy music since their founding in 1989. Championing the weak and the voiceless, the band has over 200,000 catalogue sales to date, according to Nielsen Soundscan. Regardless of passing trends, the five-piece has maintained their vision, dedication to their craft (and causes), and most importantly respected their fans in the 20-plus years of their performing career. In 2013, the band embarks on a new chapter delivering mission music as only they can."

Guitarist Scott Crouse says, “We are excited to be working on a new album, and equally as excited to be working on it with Candlelight. Their roster speaks for itself. It's an honor to be alongside bands like Fear Factory, Corrosion of Conformity, and our old friends in Vision of Disorder.”

Vocalist Karl Buechner comments, “I'm really looking forward to sharing this next chapter of EC with Candlelight Records. I think they've proven to know the genre well, and will help push us in the right direction.” Revealing a bit about the new album and its focus, Buechner conveys, “Lyrically this new record is going to focus strictly on an animal rights/anti-vivisection theme. Of course this is what the band is known for, but we've actually never solely dedicated an entire album to the topic.”

Candlelight co-owner Steve Beatty also notes, “I am very proud to have Earth Crisis on Candlelight. I hope our partnership sees the band retain their rightful place in extreme music.”

Earth Crisis will break from songwriting at month’s end to perform four shows for Australian fans. Confirmed dates are as follows:

1/31/2013 The Hi Fi - Brisbane
2/01/2013 Hermanns Bar - Sydney
2/02/2013 The Corner Hotel - Melbourne
2/03/2013 Fowlers Live - Adelaide
