Denmark's highly acclaimed modern metallers (and BLABBERMOUTH.NET faves) RAUNCHY have finalized the track listing for their third full-length album, "Death Pop Romance", due in Europe on February 20, 2006 (February 17 in Germany) via Lifeforce Records. The CD was recorded during the summer by Jacob Hansen (MERCENARY, FEAR MY THOUGHTS, COMMUNIC) at Hansen studio in Robe, Denmark and was mixed by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studios (HATESPHERE, THE HAUNTED, MNEMIC) in Aarhus, Denmark. The upcoming album marks the recording debut with the group of new singer Kasper Thomsen, who replaced Lars Vognstrup last year.

According to a press release, RAUNCHY "take the necessary steps to propel their sound forward by mixing intensely abrasive thrash riffs and dynamic drumming in the vein of STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and FEAR FACTORY with their signature sound, while subliminally incorporating elements of pop music and melodic death metal in the vein of SOILWORK or IN FLAMES."
RAUNCHY split with Nuclear Blast Records in January after releasing two albums through the label (2002's "Velvet Noise" and 2004's "Confusion Bay").
