ELIS Begins Recording New Album

Liechtenstein-based gothic metallers ELIS have entered Mastersound Studio in Germany with producer Alex Krull (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES) to begin recording their new album. The follow-up to 2006's "Griefshire" will mark the band's first full-length recording with new singer Sandra Schleret, who joined ELIS in Decemebr 2006. An early 2009 release via Napalm Records is expected.

ELIS released a single, "Show Me the Way", on November 2, 2007 in Europe and November 6, 2007 in North America via Napalm Records. The single's title cut, which originally appeared on 2006's "Griefshire" album, features lead vocals by Schleret. Also included on the single are several previously unreleased songs from the "Griefshire" recording sessions.

ELIS' previous vocalist, Sabine Dünser, suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on July 7, 2006 during rehearsal and passed away the following day in hospital.

"Griefshire" was released in Europe on November 24, 2006 via Napalm Records (the U.S. received the album on January 16). The recordings for the CD were completed prior to the death of Dünser, who came up with the original concept for the album.

The follow-up to 2004's "Dark Clouds in a Perfect Sky", "Griefshire" was completed at Mastersound Studios in Stuttgart with producer Alexander Krull (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES).
