Australian industrial djent metallers SYNTHETIC BREED will release a new EP, "Zero Degrees Freedom", on May 29 via the San Francisco, California-based indie metal label Rogue Records America. The four-piece signed with the label in September 2011 and the new five-track EP is their first release for Rogue Records with new material. The digital-only release will be available for purchase through Amazon, Bandcamp, and other digital retailers. The EP package comes complete with PDF booklet, desktop background and Facebook timeline banner.
"Zero Degrees Freedom" was mastered by Mike Spreitzer of DEVILDRIVER at his studio in Santa Barbara, California. Having heard the band, thanks to his friendship with Rogue Records founder and President Dean Martinetti, Mike was eager to get on board and lend his hand to the production. The EP contains five blistering industrial metal cuts fronted by stand-in female vocalist M. Refalaeda. In addition to completely reworking fan favorites like "Resilience", the EP also contains the brand new single "Dimension Zero".
Commented SYNTHETIC BREED drummer Daniel Luttick, "It's been a couple of years since we've released new material. It's a great feeling to be releasing new and re-worked material. I'm a big fan of DEVILDRIVER and Mike's work adds a bit of polish that really brings out the best of what we've done. 'Zero Degrees Freedom' is just preview of what people can expect from our next full-feature album."
Rogue Records previously released the double album "Convergence" and "Perpetual Motion Machine" digitally. The latter album was also released for mail order through Rogue Records physical distribution with Century Media's CM Distro.
