DESPISED ICON To Enter Studio Next Month

Montreal extreme metallers DESPISED ICON have issued the following update:

"The Montreal Assault Tour [with BENEATH THE MASSACRE, CARNIFEX, NEURAXIS and THE PLASMARIFLE] is almost halfway done already. Thanks to everyone that came out and supported our scene. The shows have been sick so far! It feels great to be back in the U.S. and share the stage with our hometown boys every night. We won't be back until next summer so come hang out!

"Right after this tour, we'll finally hit the studio to record our fourth album. We're almost done writing and the new shit is packed with brutality. Can't wait to play these songs live! As always, our long time buddy Yannick St-Amand will produce the whole thing and we got Zeuss and Alan Douches to take care of the mixing and mastering so the result should sound monstrous! Our boy Felix Rancourt, the evil mastermind behind all our imagery, promised us his sickest album artwork to date. The recording starts March 7; get stoked! We'll post a few video blogs while we're in the studio to keep you guys updated.

"In the meantime, you'll soon be able to check out our live DVD ['Montreal Assault Live']. It's been ready for months and we're all extremely happy with how it turned out. Unfortunately, there was a major manufacturing problem that forced our label to push back the release date to March 24. This was completely out of our control, sorry guys! I can assure you though, the DVD rules! Aside from our live sold-out show in Montreal, it also features an hour long documentary, interviews, all our music videos, footage from us hanging out and rocking out on the road during the past seven years and a few other surprises!"

A live version of the track "The Sun Will Never Charm Us" taken from the forthcoming DVD is available for viewing below.
