Stoneburner Reveals "Life Drawing" Album Details

Portland sludge slingers and recent Neurot family additions, Stoneburner, are readying to unleash their forthcoming new full-length, "Life Drawing."

The follow-up to the 2012 debut, "Sickness Will Pass," features nine rumbling odes of bottom-heavy hostility and emotional decay. Recorded, mixed, and produced by Fester at Haywire Studios, mastered by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Mastering -- both in Portland -- and swathed in the visually abrasive cover art of J.J. Shirey, "Life Drawing" promises to hurl Stoneburner's habitually chest-caving sludge mantras to entirely new realms of earth-deteriorating heaviness.

Comments the band in a collective statement: "Lyrically we've always focused on personal matters, and one theme that particularly seems to keep coming up on this record is the struggle to be a decent person in a world that keeps doing its best to cause you not to be. J.J. Shirey, who paints our album covers, is part of the Stoneburner brotherhood and we have absolute faith in him.

"We have him sit in on rehearsals, read our lyrics, and then we send him off to come up with whatever he thinks best suits the material. We feel that this piece absolutely captures the mood of trying to grow and heal, but constantly finding yourself falling back into the darkness caused by emotional and physical addictions. The world isn't always a happy, beautiful place, and neither is our music. Thanks to J.J. you're going to sense that before you even hear the album."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Some Can
2. Caged Bird
3. Drift
4. An Apology To A Friend In Need
5. Pale New Eyes
6. Giver Of Birth
7. Done
8. You Are The Worst
9. The Phoenix
