SCALE THE SUMMIT: New Album Artwork Unveiled

Houston-based progressive instrumentalists SCALE THE SUMMIT have set "The Collective" as the title of their third album, due on March 1 via Prosthetic Records. The follow-up to 2009's "Carving Desert Canyons" was recorded at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Mark Lewis (DEVILDRIVER, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER).

The standard CD is available now for pre-order, as is a signed booklet version bundled with a high-quality, limited-edition, American Apparel shirt.

SCALE THE SUMMIT will be on tour in March and April with FAIR TO MIDLAND and PERIPHERY.

SCALE THE SUMMIT formed in 2005 while attending the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. The band relocated to Texas in 2006, where they recorded their first, self-released album. After signing with Prosthetic, they issued "Carving Desert Canyons", which Revolver called "a cinematic blast of intricately melodic fretwork and pummeling percussion," in 2009.

SCALE THE SUMMIT, which received praise from Guitar World for its "tightly-woven guitar interplay, irregular time signatures and tasteful licks," has toured with the likes of PROTEST THE HERO, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, CYNIC, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and was handpicked by DREAM THEATER to participate in the 2009 installment of the "Progressive Nation" festival tour. SCALE THE SUMMIT has also been featured prominently in Guitar Player magazine, and has tracks available for the Rock Band video game through the Rock Band Network.
