ARCHSPIRE have announced a new album!
Titled Bleed The Future, the upcoming album from the Canadian technical death metal band is the follow-up to 2017’s Relentless Mutation and is scheduled to be released in October this year, via Season of Mist.
The upcoming album was recorded in October and November 2020 at Flatline Audio in Colorado with producer/engineer Dave Otero. This was the second consecutive album the band worked with Otero. “The benefit we had was that Relentless Mutation came out in 2017,” says guitarist Dean Lamb. “Since then, we toured more than we ever did before. We had the viewpoint of ‘What do crowds like? What parts should we write more of? What parts do people give us good feedback on?’ We wanted to expand and write those parts more consistently – there are more hooks and when we do have hooks, we wanted to repeat those parts so people will know that this is the catchy part of the song.”
“The most important thing was that we had clever songwriting,” adds drummer Spencer Prewett. “We wanted the album to be more accessible to more people but still keep it extreme, fast and technical. So, we changed our process this time. We recorded rehearsal every day and listened to what we did afterward. We’d then come back to the jam spot and change riffs and ideas based on what everyone was thinking about during the week. It resulted in an album that everyone was happier with.”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have released a new music video for the first song lifted from the upcoming album; Golden Mouth Of Ruin. Speaking about the new song, the band says, “the ARCHSPIRE kitchen is open for business!!! We’ll be serving up big portions of the fastest death metal your ears can handle, across Europe and the UK, so come get an extra large helping of home made, extra creamy tech death! Make sure to leave room for dessert, because we’ll be playing songs from our upcoming album Bleed The Future! Bon appetit!”
