Pomona, California thrashers BONDED BY BLOOD will enter the studio this weekend to begin recording their as-yet untitled new album, due later in the year via Earache Records. The follow up to 2010's "Exiled To Earth" will be tracked with producer and former MACHINE HEAD/SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader (DEVILDRIVER, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH) at Silver Sound and Mt. Olympus Studios in Los Angeles. It will be the band's first album to feature vocalist Mauro Gonzalez and bassist Jessie Sanchez.
"We can't wait for everybody to hear what the new album has in store. It's definitely more diverse and we all had a blast writing it," states BONDED BY BLOOD guitarist Juan Juarez. "It'll be the first record with Mauro and Jessie, who have been great additions to the lineup, and the four of us really connected well during the writing and rehearsing of this album. The playing on this album will be top-notch. We're glad to be recording in Los Angeles, and excited to work with Logan. We can't wait to get started and we hope everybody enjoys it as much as we do."
BONDED BY BLOOD's latest album, "Exiled To Earth", sold around 600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 86 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
