Get excited Aussie metal heads - the relentlessly epic gents from As Paradise Falls yesterday finally let slip the artwork, track listing and release date for their hotly anticipated full-length album 'Digital Ritual'. Fresh from signing an exclusive deal with US label Eclipse Records, the new release from these Brissie boys will not only up the ante on their blistering sound - it also marks a significant personal achievement for the entire band. While recording ‘Digital Ritual’ in late 2015, the band’s guitarist Glen Barrie suddenly passed away. After clawing their way back from immense tragedy, the new album will finally see a release on July 21, 2017 through Eclipse Records.
“After everything that’s happened, releasing the album is a very emotional process,” states guitarist Danny Kenneally. “We’re stoked about finally sharing it with the world, but at the same time we’re anxious about whether we’ve done everything we can to preserve Glen’s legacy.”
About working with producer Shane Edwards (Northlane, Trophy Eyes, Hellions), Danny continues, “We’re very thankful that Shane produced our album. He knows exactly how to push us to our limits as musicians, getting the best out of us. He has the unique ability to place an idea of ours in his hands, and from there it just flourishes into something brilliant.” ‘Digital Ritual’ is available now for pre-order via iTunes and Amazon. Either option comes with the songs 'StarBlind' and 'Digital Ritual' as instant grat tracks! The album is also available to pre-order via Google Play, and the single ‘StarBlind’ is already streaming via Spotify and Apple Music.
