Washington metal act, Demon Hunter, has announced that they have finished tracking a brand new album in Seattle, as well as a recent lineup change. The new record is a follow up to their 2010 album “The World Is a Thorn”(Solid State).
“This record is without a doubt our most aggressive. Every Demon Hunter record must be a step up from the last. I know that’s a goal for every band, but it seldom works that way – especially today, especially in metal. It seems like most bands’ prime years are long behind them. I refuse to let that be the case for us… We’ve been extremely underwhelmed with metal for the last five years or so, and that’s been the fuel to create this record. With an extreme over-saturation of false, fleeting, trend-hopping noise in today’s metal scene, we had to make something we’ve been longing to hear. Something truly meaningful and artistic. Something our fans would love and something that will turn the heads of those who have ignored us for the past decade.” said vocalist and band co-founder Ryan Clark.
Ryan Clark(vocals), Tim “Yogi” Watts (drums), Jonathan Dunn (bass) and Patrick Judge (lead guitar) are now joined by longtime friend and fellow musician Jeremiah Scott on rhythm guitar.
Demon Hunter has also announced tour dates for 2012:
April 27th – Seattle, WA @ El Corazon
April 30th – Kouvola, Finland @ Vappugospel
