As previously announced, US Doom legends SAINT VITUS recently completed the recording of their eighth studio album, their first since 1995. This forthcoming opus, marking the return of seminal vocalist Scott “Wino” Weinrich, is entitled “Lillie: F-65” and has been tentatively scheduled for a March 23rd (27th in North America), 2012 release.
SAINT VITUS has just been confirmed for the next edition of the Sweden Rock Festival, which will take place in Sölvesborg, Sweden on June 6th-9th, 2012.
French metallers ETHS’ third album will hit the stores on March 2nd (13th in North America), 2012 and the band aptly named it “III”. Vocalist Candice comments on her recording sessions:
“Sensitivity, right tone, right grunt, breath, emotion, be exposed, introspection, re-do, re-do, tiredness, insomnia, re-do, feel emptiness, fall, get back up, get there, re-do, give everything, achieve the goal, just sing. The voice recordings can be such a pain but in the end the result is always worth it… This album kills.”
ETHS just announced the first leg of their upcoming tour in the wake of “III”. Support on most of the gigs will come from fellow label mates KELLS, who will release their new album “Anachromie” on January 20th.
