BORN OF OSIRIS To Enter Studio Next Month

BORN OF OSIRIS will enter the studio on April 1 with producer Nick Sampson (I AM ABOMINATION, IN FEAR AND FAITH, ADESTRIA) to begin recording its new album for a summer 2013 via Sumerian Records. Mixing the CD will be Joey Sturgis, who has previously worked with ASKING ALEXANDRIA and EMMURE, among others. Guitarist Lee McKinney states: "We are very excited to be working with these guys."

He continues: "As for the album's content, we're gonna be doing six-string and seven-string songs on the same recording for the first time ever. Aside from that, we've been more focused for this record than any of the previous. We've had two-plus years to write, critique, adjust and learn these songs, which is just something we haven't had in the past with our intense touring schedule. Like the last album ('The Discovery'), we've been living and writing this album together and it's made for the best, most focused BORN OF OSIRIS album to date.

"What makes this release even more special to us is the fact that we'll be releasing it on the one and only Rockstar Energy [Drink] Mayhem [Festival] this summer. We get to share the stage with some of the biggest and most talented names in metal. There's no other better way to possibly start this record cycle."

"The Discovery" sold around 6,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 87 on The Billboard 200 chart. The group's previous CD, 2009's "A Higher Place", entered the charts at No. 73 with first-week sales of over 6,000 copies.

"The Discovery" was released on March 22, 2011 via Sumerian Records. The CD was recorded at BOTA Studio in Lake In The Hills, Illinois and was mixed by Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, TRIVIUM, DEVILDRIVER).
