Knoxville, Tennessee-based death/grind metallers WHITECHAPEL have issued the following update:"As you may know we've currently been in the studio working hard recording our Metal Blade Records debut album. While we're doing this we figured we could fill you all in on some information about the record. "The title of the record will be 'This Is Exile'. This title may be familiar to some of you as we had been playing the title track live on our last tour giving you a taste of the material to come. "The effort is being tracked by Jonny Fay (ex-guitarist of THE RED CHORD) of Backyard Studios in New Hampshire and will be mixed by Zeuss (who has produced ION DISSONANCE, EMMURE, BLOOD HAS BEEN SHED, SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED). With this combination of producers and the new material we have written, we are sure to deliver you one of the heaviest records of 2008. "The artwork is being handled by Colin Marks (who has worked with ABORTED, THE END, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, THE RED DEATH). He is doing a phenomenal job and we are extremely pleased with the outcome of his work. He has done a wonderful job of portraying the concept of the record through his artwork. "The CD will be released EVERYWHERE this summer, so keep your eyes peeled for a release date. The track listing, album artwork, and a brand new track for you all to enjoy will be released this spring. "We love each and every one of you and thank you so much for your continuing support, without all of you we couldn't be living this dream. Keep it up and let's make this CD huge!!" Fan-filmed video footage of WHITECHAPEL performing a new song called "This Is Exile" at the Valarium in Knoxville on January 19, 2008 can be viewed below. WHITECHAPEL's debut album, "The Somatic Defilement", was released last year via Candlelight Records USA. The band has since inked a deal with Metal Blade and is planning on issuing a new CD later in the year.
