Arizona act Landmine Marathon is recording the follow up to 2010's "Sovereign Descent." Once again the album is being recorded at guitarist Ryan Butler's Arcane Digital Recording Studios, where he's recorded past efforts from the band, as well as Misery Index, Phobia, The Funeral Pyre and many more.

We definitely found a great groove in writing and recording this record, everything feels very fluid. This is in great part due to our new drummer Andy York, who brings a powerful and tight dynamic to the band. I am really excited for the world to hear this new album."

Landmine Marathon, whose vocalist Grace Perry appeared on the cover of Revolver Magazine in late 2009, performed several shows at South By Southwest and the 2nd Annual Scion Rock Fest in March 2010, and also appeared at Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest and Indianapolis' Dude Fest last year.

"Things are still rather quiet on the Dew-Scented front and that has to do with us working on new song material in the background. The first ideas for the next album are being written as I type this, so hopefully it will be a good flow and entertaining creative process in the coming months?!

"Nevertheless, we have recently confirmed two more Summer festival shows, making it a total of 4 live shows coming up for 2011.
