WILL HAVEN Putting Finishing Touches On New Album
Sacramento, California's WILL HAVEN is putting the finishing touches to the follow-up to 2007's "The Hierophant". The as-yet-untitled, self-produced effort will mark the return of the band's original vocalist Grady Avenell, who rejoined WILL HAVEN in October 2009 after a two-year break. The CD will also feature SLIPKNOT percussionist Chris Fehn handling bass duties, following the departure of Mike Martin, who left the group to focus on family life.
"Grady is halfway done with vocals for the new record, all [we] can say is damn!" reads a post on the band's blog. "He is killing it! He sounds more amazing than ever: straight rage, emotion and feeling on this one. Getting close my friends. We can't wait for everyone to hear it."
"The Hierophant" was released in June 2007 through Bieler Bros. Records. Heralded by guitarist Jeff Irwin as "by far the best stuff we have ever done" and featuring production by Shaun Lopez (FAR, REVOLUTION SMILE) and DEFTONES vocalist Chino Moreno, the CD was WILL HAVEN's first release since 2001's critically acclaimed "Carpe Diem". It was also the group's first and only effort with singer Jeff Jaworski (formerly of RED TAPE).
