ARSIS Mainman: We Are 'Not Breaking Up'

ARSIS guitarist/lead vocalist James Malone has shot down Internet reports that the group has broken up. "While is it true that we had to leave the EXODUS tour early to take care of some personal business at home, ARSIS is NOT breaking up," he says/ "We will be meeting up with SKELETONWITCH in Dallas this Sunday to resume the headlining portion of our tour. I sincerely apologize to any fans that came to see us in the cities that we were unable to play; I promise that we will make it up to you guys. Our new album, 'We Are the Nightmare', will be released April 15th through Nuclear Blast Records and we plan to be on tour all throughout the rest of the year. As of today, you can check out the title track from the new album on our MySpace page."

Produced by Zeuss (AGNOSTIC FRONT, HATEBREED, MUNICIPAL WASTE) at Planet Z Studios in Massachusetts and mastered by Alan Douches (KATAKLYSM, UNEARTH, SHADOWS FALL), "We Are The Nightmare" will feature the following track listing:

01. We Are The Nightmare
02. Shattering The Spell
03. Sightless Wisdom
04. Servants To The Night
05. Failing Winds Of Hopeless Greed
06. Overthrown
07. Progressive Entrapment
08. A Feast For The Liar's Tongue
09. My Oath To Madness
10. Failure's Conquest

"We Are The Nightmare" will be released with a bonus 45-minute DVD that includes the band's time in the studio, off-stage antics, and some general goofing around. Malone adds: "I can honestly say that this was the best recording experience that I have had in my years with ARSIS. Not only was Zeuss great to work with, but Ryan (Knight, guitarist), Darren (Cesca, drummer), and Noah (Martin, bassist) all did an outstanding job. We all worked together to create what I feel is the most accomplished ARSIS album to date. I can still listen to the songs, and that's a good sign."
