It Dies Today – Entering Studio to Record New Album – Announce UK and Headlining Tours
IT DIES TODAY have announced a plethora of big events taking shape starting in April, when the band will enter the studio to record their new album, set to be released in early September. The band has been locked away in their own personal studio for the past three months, crafting an album that Nick Brooks, lead vocalist says “is a more maturely written departure from strict metal-core. This is everything we wanted to do on the last record, with less emphasis on screaming, and a strong focus on musicianship.” The band is recording with famed producer Gggarth Richardson, who has worked in the past with bands as diverse as RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, RISE AGAINST, ATREYU and more. The album will be co-produced by guitarist Mike Hatalak. Nick gave a preview glimpse into one of the new songs that deals with the ramblings of serial killer Aileen Wurnos, the female prostitute on whom the movie Monster is based, saying, “This is one of our more catchier tunes, ironically. I’m used to writing lyrics that tend to be dark and haunting, and this story really intrigued me.” Nick took what is known to be her last words and made a song out of his interpretation.
IT DIES TODAY will hit the road once they finish recording the album, their first tour in May, to the UK with good friends and fellow Buffalonians EVERY TIME I DIE. Of his fan base in the UK, Nick says, “The kids in the UK are always so psyched to see us. They have a genuine enthusiasm and love of music.”
A week after returning from the UK they will begin their own headlining tour with HASTE THE DAY, CHIODOS, THE SHOWDOWN, followed by a spot on Warped Tour with label mates 18 VISIONS.
