A LIFE ONCE LOST Checks In From The Studio

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's A LIFE ONCE LOST recently entered Planet Red studios in Richmond, Virginia with producer Andreas Magnusson (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, IMPENDING DOOM) to begin recording its new album for a late 20120 release via Season Of Mist.

"We are hustling along here with this album," states vocalist Bob Meadows. "It's going to be a beast of a record and fans can expect a little more honesty both musically and lyrically with an amalgamation of the ALOL signature style and some other surprises that have yet to be over played within the metal community. We are making this record because we enjoy the art of making music, not because we have to make a new record. As long as we are happy playing in ALOL, we will continue to grow and take our sound further."

After only several days in the studio, the band is making quick progress without sacrificing important details. Meadows adds, "Right now we're halfway done with guitars and bass. I've finished vocals for several tracks and we're looking to finish basic recording and then fine-tune everything for the next few weeks. We're going to be posting some video updates in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for those."

Before leaving to record in Richmond, the band landed a residency for the summer at the infamous Kung Fu Necktie in their hometown.

"We are doing a July residency at the most lawless club in Philly, Kung Fu Necktie (KFN)," states guitarist Doug Sabolick. "Every week we will have special guests playing and each show will be a different line up. Come check out all the new ALOL material as we tighten up our show and get ready to unleash our new album."

Kung Fu Necktie, located at 1250 North Front Street in Philadephia, will host the band for performances on July 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30. Stay tuned for lineup announcements coming soon!

In addition to the KFN performances, the band recently announced a string of summer tour dates with California sludge metal band BLACK SHEEP WALL. The tour kicks off on June 23rd in Richmond, Virginia, ending on July 2 in Philadelphia.
