LAST CHANCE TO REASON To Enter Studio This Week

Maine progressive tech-metallists LAST CHANCE TO REASON will enter Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida later this week with producer Eyal Levi (DAATH, WHITECHAPEL, SIX FEET UNDER) to begin recording their third album for an early 2013 release via Prosthetic Records. The CD will mark the recording debut of Boston-based guitarist Mike Abdow, who joined the band last fall.

Commented LAST CHANCE TO REASON drummer Evan Sammons: "We've been working on the new album diligently and now we're headed to Audiohammer to begin tracking with Eyal. We've been sending material to Eyal and talking about production techniques and ideas for the album's tone and things are really clicking.

"Touring with great bands over the past couple years has really inspired us to up the ante for this release. We've grown as songwriters and are embracing our strengths as musicians.

"We're doing a concept piece again and we'll be making sure the music and production suits the story."

Added LAST CHANCE TO REASON vocalist Michael Lessard: "Having Eyal involved has been nothing short of excellent. He understands where we are going with the concept of this album and has only helped strengthen that vision."

LAST CHANCE TO REASON's Prosthetic debut, "Level 2", was praised by Outburn for its "climatic passages" and "stirring ethereality." The concept album, which was produced by Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, THE HUMAN ABSTRACT), revolved around the relationship between man and technology. The band took the concept one step further by teaming up with indie developer Tom Vine and pixel artist Francis Coulombe to create a fully interactive video game version of the album in which the story unfolds through the band's thematic riffs, stirring vocal hooks and progressive virtuosity while the player blasts his way through vicious gameplay inspired by classics such as R-Type, Contra, and Super Metroid.
