Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of up-and-coming metal act BEYOND THE SHORE. The band's debut full-length, "Ghostwatcher", will be released on April 2. The first single, "Half Lived", is available now on iTunes. The CD was recorded last year in Lowell, North Carolina with Kevin Newland of Newland Recordings.

In 2008, the Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky quintet formed when the members were still in high school. Relentlessly booking shows, touring and balancing school at the same time, BEYOND THE SHORE had the privilege of sharing the stage with acts such as BORN OF OSIRIS, SHAI HULUD, MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE, OF MACHINES, AFTER THE BURIAL and many more. BEYOND THE SHORE has created quite a buzz in the short time they have been a band.

The band's first release, "The Arctic Front" EP (2009), was produced by Kelly Cairns and recorded at Lambesis Studios (AS I LAY DYING, WAR OF AGES, AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE, IMPENDING DOOM) in San Marcos, California. It helped to build an impressive Internet buzz, starting with the release of the EP's first single, "Shotgun Sunrise". After playing several shows in support of the EP, BEYOND THE SHORE began work on "Ghostwatcher".
