HOSTILE CELL: New Album Delayed

The release date of "The Deafening", the sophomore album from the Gothenburg, Sweden-based metal/rock band HOSTILE CELL, has been pushed back to May 12 from the previously announced April 6 (via the group's own Coreshot Productions, with distribution through Plugged Records). According to the group, the delay was caused by the fact that the cover art by David Heleander of All Custom Tattoo hasn't been completed yet and that the mastering of the album has been postponed.

15 songs were recorded for the follow-up to the band's self-titled debut, which will feature a guest appearance by Tony Jelencovich (M.A.N, ex-MNEMIC, TRANSPORT LEAGUE). The CD will be available in physical and digital formats.

Regarding the album title, HOSTILE CELL previously explained that it "reflect[s] the chaotic media static that surrounds every civilized human 24-7, and, of course, the sonic assault that these songs will deliver."

Video footage of HOSTILE CELL performing a brand new song entitled "Reanimation" can be viewed below.

HOSTILE CELL last year recruited Johan Andreassen, formerly of HEADPLATE and ENGEL, as the group's new permanent bass player.

HOSTILE CELL released its self-titled debut album on October 1, 2008 via Coreshot Productions. The 10-track CD was mastered by Dragan Tanaskovich at Bohussound Recordings.
