Look for BORN OF OSIRIS to perform on this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, which kicks off this Saturday, June 29.
Stated BORN OF OSIRIS guitarist Lee McKinney: "We couldn't be more excited to not only have a new record coming out this summer, but to have a new single available in time for the start of Mayhem fest! 'Machine', to me, is just a straight-up, in-your-face BORN OF OSIRIS song. It's got an epic intro, intense orchestral content, heavy keyboard breakdowns, a great structure, impactful vocals and of course some gnarly guitar shred. It definitely hits hard from beginning to end. We can't wait to head out and play it live all summer long."
BORN OF OSIRIS's new album was recorded with producer Nick Sampson (I AM ABOMINATION, IN FEAR AND FAITH, ADESTRIA). Mixing the CD was Joey Sturgis, who has previously worked with ASKING ALEXANDRIA and EMMURE, among others.
McKinney previously stated about the upcoming CD: "W e're gonna be doing six-string and seven-string songs on the same recording for the first time ever. Aside from that, we've been more focused for this record than any of the previous. We've had two-plus years to write, critique, adjust and learn these songs, which is just something we haven't had in the past with our intense touring schedule. Like the last album ('The Discovery'), we've been living and writing this album together and it's made for the best, most focused BORN OF OSIRIS album to date."
"The Discovery" sold around 6,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 87 on The Billboard 200 chart. The group's previous CD, 2009's "A Higher Place", entered the charts at No. 73 with first-week sales of over 6,000 copies.
"The Discovery" was released on March 22, 2011 via Sumerian Records. The CD was recorded at BOTA Studio in Lake In The Hills, Illinois and was mixed by Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, TRIVIUM, DEVILDRIVER).
