THE THICK OF IT Featuring Former ANNIHILATOR Bassist: 'First Day Of Death' Due In July

THE THICK OF IT, the new band featuring former members of FLYBANGER, ANNIHILATOR and KILL RHYTHM, has posted three tracks from its upcoming 10-song release, "First Day Of Death", at this location.

The album's title track, "First Day Of Death", which was mixed by Dean Maher (THEORY OF A DEADMAN, RISE AGAINST), is described in a press release as "a hard and heavy song that tells the story about courage and overcoming one's weaknesses. The song is about the first day of your new life and the last day of your old life, having the courage to take a positive step to be who you really are."

"First Day Of Death" was recorded at the Nimbus School of Recording Arts, owned by famed producer GGGarth Richardson (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, MUDVAYNE). Five new tracks were produced by Futcher (LILLIX, BE GOOD TANYAS) and engineered by Scott Ternan (MARIANAS TRENCH, MATTHEW GOOD, SAM ROBERTS). Bill Kennedy (NINE INCH NAILS, MEGADETH, MARILYN MANSON, MÖTLEY CRÜE) was brought in for mixing. The resulting effort includes remixed tracks from THE THICK OF IT's "Destroyed" EP and is a tribute to the band's longtime loyal fans and friends who have stuck by the group through thick and thin over the course of its career. The underlying theme of overcoming the past and looking forward to the future is evident in the title track, "First Day of Death". Vocalist Garth sums up the song: "It's a hard and heavy song that tells the story about courage and overcoming one's weaknesses. The song is about the first day of your new life and the last day of your old life, having the courage to take a positive step to be who you really are."

THE THICK OF IT's album cover was designed by drummer Rob Wade and guitarist Michael Johnston and depicts "the light at the end of the tunnel" and metamorphosis symbolism.

"First Day Of Death" will be released digitally on July 19.
