ION DISSONANCE Preparing To Record New Album

Montreal-based quintet ION DISSONANCE is getting ready to record its third album, entitled "Minus the Herd". The follow-up to 2005's "Solace" will be produced by Zeuss and will be released later in the year through Abacus Recordings.

Commented singer Kevin McCaughey: "This is by far some of the best stuff we have ever written. There are some changes in direction with this new release, but I definitely think the die hard ION followers will still be into the new stuff. I guess the only word to describe this new album would have to be brutal. Just straight and plain heaviness."

ION DISSONANCE will hit the road in the United States with ARSIS and BENEATH THE MASSACRE with a stop at the California Metalfest. They will also be touring Europe with DEAD TO FALL and THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD in May. "As for the upcoming tour dates, I have to say that I, myself, and the rest of the band are really looking forward to heading out with our good friends in BENEATH THE MASSACRE for their first strand of U.S. shows," said McCaughey. "I have never been out to the West Coast and I am really excited about it. We have also just confirmed our first-ever European tour with our good friends in DEAD TO FALL and THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD. We are all really excited about this, and I can't wait to hit the road with these new songs once the recording process is finished."
