Philadelphia's doom/sludge masters JAVELINA (pronounced "ha-va-'lE-na") will enter Volume Studios (PELICAN, RWAKE, NACHTMYSTIUM, MINSK) in Chicago in March with producer Sanford Parker to begin recording their new album for a late summer/early fall release via Translation Loss Records. The follow-up to the band's self-titled debut will be recorded over a one-week period and will be mastered by Mick Mullin at Super 8 Studios (INTRONAUT, MASTODON, FIGHT AMP). A total of nine original tunes will be laid down along with a BUZZV*EN cover that will be featured on a upcoming tribute record. Songtitles set to appear on the new CD include "You're Going to Hate This", "Towers of Silence", "The Black Blizzard" and "Stepchild".Formed in October 2005 by ex-members of Philadelphia bands LICKGOLDENSKY, SMUT and OTOPHOBIA/ENDLESS NIGHTMARE, JAVELINA (pronounced ha-va-lE-na) spent over a year honing its sound before playing its first show. JAVELINA's sound embodies the massive sludgy nature of BUZZOV*EN and EYEHATEGOD with the raw punk intensity of HIS HERO IS GONE and the straightforward nature of HIGH ON FIRE all wrapped up into one.
