After six years of hiatus the Swiss melodic dark/death metal band EVER SINCE resurrects and are ready their fourth full-length album “Bring Out The Gimp” which will be released February 17th via Mighty Music. Already this Saturday the band will celebrate the release with a exclusive releaseshow at Cave Des Bernunes in Sierre, Switzerland.
Originally founded out of the ashes of now disbanded Sacrement, drummer Cédric and guitarist Vincent took the decision back in 1998, to continue the musical lineage of Sacrement, and perpetuate it through a new vessel, ironically enough called Ever Since.
The luminescent atmosphere of bands such as Dark Tranquility, Paradise Lost and Cradle of Filth, sparked a light in Ever Since, who had now become a full band, and with this light, they soon spawned the two albums, “Into a Reign of Pain” from 2001 and“Fight the Elements” from 2002, to much critical acclaim from the international metal media.
With the two albums, the band had established a musical framework based on melancholia, simplicity and nerve, but after the release of their 3rd effort “Between Heaven and Hell” and subsequent tours of France and England, the fire had burned out, and in 2007 the band was sadly forced to go on hiatus.
Now it’s 2013, and the fire in Ever Since has rekindled. The band is now back with their latest magnum opus “Bring Out the Gimp” produced, mixed and mastered by Sybreed-mastermind Drop.
To support the release, Ever Since will embark on a pre-release tour in January-February throughout Europe, including Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Austria, Italy, Spain, UK and Norway alongside Beasto Blanco (feat. Calico Cooper – Alice Cooper’s Daughter). It will be possible to obtain the upcoming album on the tour before the official release February 17th!
