CROSSBREED To Release 'KE 101' This Month

Florida industrial metal act CROSSBREED will release its new album, "KE 101", on September 15, 2009 through Driven Music Group, the independent label founded by former KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch. The band has also scheduled a series of warm-up dates in September before embarking on a full-scale U.S. tour later this year.

"You would figure after the collapse of Artemis Records, and replacing four of the six original members would have done this band, but we have so many more people to piss off before this show can be over," says frontman James Breed. "This album is the culmination of blood, sweat and tears for us and I know people have been waiting for a long time for us to release this album. We can't wait to hear people's reactions to the new material and hope to see everybody out at these upcoming shows we have coming up in Florida later in the month."

According to a press release, "KE 101" "takes the slamming amalgamation of techno pulses and trademark grinding guitars CROSSBREED is known for and melds it with infectious songwriting."
"KE 101" track listing:

01. Kill Everything
02. Hollow
03. Nothing
04. Emote
05. TB Not
06. The Calling
07. End Of Days
08. Superstition
09. Saints Of Grey
10. Control
11. Beg

It was a radio show hosted by Tampa's WXTB in early 2000 that landed a CROSSBREED demo in the hands of the Canadian metal band KITTIE, who brought the tape to the attention of its then-label Artemis Records. CROSSBREED signed a deal soon after, spending the latter part of the year holed up in a New York City studio where they wrote and recorded the songs that would become 2001's "Synthetic Division". The album went on to sell over 50,000 copies in the United States, while the band continued to tour across the country.

CROSSBREED tour dates:

Sep. 25 - Fort Lauderdale, FL @ Revolution
Sep. 26 - Saint Petersburg, FL @ State Theatre
Sep. 27 - Orlando, FL @ House of Blues
