Garden State progressive metal act Gyre has inked a record deal with Monolithic Records, the label arm of community based webzine The Monolith. The band and label are excited to announce the group's new EP "Second Circle," due out July 23rd, 2013.

"Gyre is proud to announce the release of its second EP through Monolithic Records," said the band in a statement. "We understand that no band is an island. In this understanding Gyre is excited to team up with Tom Quigley, Jesse Zuretti and Monolithic to further our musical endeavor.

"Listeners can expect progressive metal that does not lose sight of the power of structure and song, and an understanding that it is the connection between our emotions that really get messages across to audiences. As Nietzsche said, 'In music the passions enjoy themselves.' Come enjoy our passion with us."

Added Monolithic founder Tom Quigley: "Gyre play a unique style of proggy groove metal with great aplomb, blending the technical aggression of a younger, scrappier Gojira with the mature melodic flourishes of Leprous or Extol. They are a natural fit for the small, tight-knit family we have at Monolithic Records."

The track listing is as follows:

1. All Revealing Eye
2. Ever Devourer
3. Circle to Feed
4. I Receiving All

Recorded with Kevin Antressian at Backroom Studios (Dillinger Escape Plan, The Number 12 Looks Like You, Adrenaline Mob, Foxy Shazam), Gyre will unveil a new song from "Second Circle" later this week. Thematically, "Second Circle" is inspired by T.S. Eliot's "The Wasteland."
