Earth Crisis Reveals New Album "Salvation Of Innocents"

Candlelight Records today confirms March 3rd for Europe and March 4th as the North American release date for "Salvation of Innocents," the label debut from hardcore/metal pioneers Earth Crisis.

Mixed by Zeuss (Agnostic Front, Terror, Hatebreed), the album and its lead single, "The Morbid Glare," will be available for preorder via iTunes and other digital platforms beginning January 21st.

"Salvation of Innocents" features twelve new tracks from the Syracuse-formed band. Guitarist Scott Crouse shares, "The process for this album was new for us. We did most of it ourselves. The absence of pressure having to get things done by a certain time each day really gave us the freedom to try new ideas and critically listen to the songs. From the music, to the lyrical concept, to the comic book that brings the lyrics to life, we think we've created something pretty unique."

The comic book Crouse mentions is the pairing of Earth Crisis with Black Mask Studios' Liberator comic. The hard-edged vigilante series will release its fifth edition simultaneously with the release of "Salvation of Innocents."

The Matt Miner created comic brings its main character and the album's vivisection concept together in a commanding graphic landscape. Black Mask Studios co-founder Matt Pizzolo says, "It is crazy to me that it took twenty years for comics to produce a set of animal-minded vigilantes strong enough to roll with Earth Crisis. It is probably the most perfectly aligned superhero team-up ever."

"Salvation of Innocents" and Liberator will share original cover art from Chicago-based illustrator/painter Menton3. The comic will feature additional works by illustrators Rod Reis, Javier Aranda, and Joaquin Pereyra. Liberator creator Matt Miner says, "Working with Earth Crisis on the comic book side of Salvation of Innocents has been a dream project for me. Our styles, ethics, and ideologies are a fitting match and I'm super excited for folks to read the story."

The track listing is:

1. De-Desensitize
2. Out Of The Cages
3. Shiver
4. The Morbid Glare
5. Razors Through Flesh
6. Depraved Indifference
7. No Reason
8. The Pallid Surgeon
9. Devoted to Death
10. Into Nothingness
11. Tentacles of The Altering Eye
