EAST OF THE WALL will be entering the renowned New Brunswick, New Jersey recording studio Trax East on May 27th to begin tracking the band’s next album, Redaction Artifacts, with engineer Eric Rachel (Burnt By The Sun, God Forbid, The Red Chord, Municipal Waste). Mixing is scheduled for mid-July and the album will be released in late October via Translation Loss Records.
Those wishing to hear new material from Redaction Artifacts right now can do so by purchasing the benefit single for the band’s new song, “I’m Always Fighting Drago.” All proceeds go to producer Andrew Schneider, to help him rebuild his studio Translator Audio — the point of conception for previous East Of The Wall albums as well as Made Out Of Babies, Keelhaul, Cave In, Unsane, and more have recorded — which was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy. In addition to the new demo for “…Drago” and an acoustic version of the band’s song “Century Of Excellence,” anyone who purchases the benefit single this April will receive links to download two free albums. The first is the new Personnel EP from EOTW guitarist/vocalist Matt Lupo’s solo project Opul. The second is the full-length Understanding Consequences from Day Without Dawn, the short-lived group formed by members of EOTW in 2006 after their previous band The Postman Syndrome disbanded. Purchase the Benefit For Translator Audio single and receive the complimentary albums RIGHT HERE.
One last way to hear new EAST OF THE WALL music in advance is to see them live. This April, the band — with Carmine Laietta of Hull in tow as a touring third guitarist — will be road testing new material on a two week tour. Also available at these shows is the new vinyl edition of the band’s out-of-print first album, Farmer’s Almanac, released today via Nefarious Industries.
