British progressive metallers The Safety Fire have announced that their album release date has been changed. Originally set to be released in late February, the album “Grind The Ocean,” is now set to be released on April 9th in the UK and April 10th in North America via Inside Out Music.

In regards to the release date change, the band commented:

“Unfortunately we are sad to announce that the official release of our album ‘Grind the Ocean’ has been delayed until April 2012 in the UK and US. Our team and label have been doing some amazing work over the past few months, and feel that delaying the official release, will give us some great opportunities- There will be new content released over the coming months, so keep your eyes open…Please note the release in other (territories) are unaffected and will be available online and in shops.”

“HOWEVER, we wanted there to be some good news for our friends in the UK & US, so we are very happy to announce a special pre-order for YOU the fans which will be released on the original date of February 27th. Those of you who pre-order will not only have the album just over a month before it is available in shops in the UK and US, it will also feature additional bonus content in a special digipack release! Head over to our brand new merch store to see the exclusive packages we are offering, including limited edition merch and posters! To every single one of you, thank you for your support! We can’t wait for everyone to hear this album, see you on the road!”
