We are excited to hear that Australian powercore-metal pioneers, A Breach Of Silence, have finished tracking songs for their third studio album with legendary producers Fredrik Nordstrom and Henrik Udd (Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Opeth). The now unnamed album will contain thirteen songs and be released by Eclipse Records by Fall of 2016.
“We approached this album differently than the last two albums Freddy and Henrik did for us” says guitarist Cossie. “They flew down here to meet up with us the day after Christmas, and over the next twenty days we tracked the album. Drums were done at Core Studios in Gold Coast, guitars were tracked on a farm in Roma, and vocals were done at Cosgrove Manor in Brisbane. Afterwards, they brought the stems back to Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden where they have been sending us various mixes of the album on a consistent basis.”
Vocalist Rhys Flannery continues, “We’re really proud of what we’ve created here. It’s different than our previous album The Darkest Road. Blair and I are doing lots of vocal harmonies, there’s a lot more stuff people can sing along with. It’s still heavy as hell, just much more diverse than our previous album.”
The previous album, The Darkest Road, by A Breach Of Silence had a great response debuting on the iTunes Metal Chart at #1 in Australia and #20 on AIRA’s 100%; as well as dozens of music blogs and media publications placing it on their Best of 2014 lists. Knowing the success of the last album the band knew they had there work cut out for them.
Flannery goes on to explain, “We did well on our last album, and set the bar for success pretty high, so we’ve got to top that this time around. The support and encouragement from our fans was a great source of inspiration throughout the song-writing process. In return, we knew we would have to give them something that connects with their hearts and souls, not just their ears. I think we’ve done that here – although we still have to come up with a name for it!”
A Breach Of Silence also has an upcoming live performance March 17th in Brisbane, Australia at Eatons Hill Hotel and Function Centre with Sevendust (tickets) which is sure to be amazing. For more info and music from A Breach Of Silence check out the bands iTunes, Facebook, and Twitter.
