Marseille, France-based female-fronted metalcore band ETHS has set "III" as the title of its third album, due on March 12, 2012 in North America (March 2 in Europe) via Season Of Mist.
Commented vocalist Candice Clot on her recording sessions: "Sensitivity, right tone, right grunt, breath, emotion, be exposed, introspection, re-do, re-do, tiredness, insomnia, re-do, feel emptiness, fall, get back up, get there, re-do, give everything, achieve the goal, just sing. The voice recordings can be such a pain but in the end the result is always worth it... This album kills."
ETHS has announced the first leg of its upcoming tour in support of "III". Joining the band on most of the dates inMarch, April and May 2012 will be fellow French metallers KELLS, who will release their new album, "Anachromie", on January 20.
As previously reported, ETHS was recently rejoined by the band's original drummer, Guillaume Dupr.
ETHS' sophomore album, "Tratologie", was released in France in October 2007 and was made available in other parts of Europe in April 2008 via Season of Mist. The band's sound is described in a press release as "dark and powerful metal with tortured atmospheres, led by charismatic female singer Candice Clot, who with her amazing voice sings, talks, whispers and growls."
