Alaska-based heavy-hitters 36 CRAZYFISTS will release their new album, "The Tide and Its Takers", on May 27 via the group's new label, Ferret Music. The band recorded the effort with guitarist and backing vocalist Steve Holt sitting in the producer's chair. Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, TESTAMENT, AS I LAY DYING) once again mixed the CD at his Backstage Studios in England.
36 CRAZYFISTS has just finished filming the video for the album's first single, "We Gave It Hell", with director Soren, who has previously worked with BEHEMOTH, UNEARTH and MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER, among others. The band is also gearing up for the upcoming "Bound By The Road" U.S. tour with DEVILDRIVER, which kicks off February 27 in Modesto. The tour also features NAPALM DEATH, WALLS OF JERICHO and INVITRO.
36 CRAZYFISTS will make its first appearance on a major U.S. festival tour when it plays this summer’s inaugural Rockstar Energy Mayhem festival. The trek features SLIPKNOT, DISTURBED, and DRAGONFORCE headlining, with 36 CRAZYFISTS landing a spot on the Jagermeister Second Stage.
The band's last album, "Rest inside the Flames", was released in North America in November 2006 via DRT Entertainment.
36 CRAZYFISTS' video for the song "I'll Go Until My Heart Stops" from "Rest Inside the Flames" can be viewed below.
"I'll Go until My Heart Stops" previously appeared on the third installment of the "MTV Headbanger's Ball" compilations, entitled "MTV Headbanger's Ball - The Revenge", which was released in April 2006 via Roadrunner.
