"Subverse", a brand new song from Lancaster, Pennsylvania's THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE, is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's new album, "Haunt What's Left", which is scheduled for release on June 22 via Good Fight Music. The follow-up to 2008's "Monuments" was recorded at Spin Studios in New York with Josh Wilbur (ATREYU, AVENGED SEVENFOLD) and Chris Adler (of LAMB OF GOD).
In other news, THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE will perform at a special in-store signing at Plan 9 in Richmond, Virginia this Friday, June 18. The event begins at 7 p.m. The band will be joined at the signing by none other than Chris Adler, a Richmond native and co-producer of "Haunt What's Left". Admission is accepted with the Plan 9 pre-order of a copy of the new THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE CD.
"First, we are going to rock Richmond," states vocalist Ricky Armellino. "Then, Chris Adler and THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE are going to sign some pre-order CDs. These steps are super important to the process. Richmond, Virginia; stand up."
Consisting of Armellino, Jack Esbenshade (guitar), Rodney Phillips (guitars), Grant McFarland (drums) and Sean Hennessey (bass), THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE encompasses a sound that melds the fine Pennsylvania traditions that have brought us the likes of AUGUST BURNS RED, A LIFE ONCE LOST and THIS DAY FORWARD while taking their musical direction to a new and uncharted height. Exhibiting a veteran-like display of confidence and focus, THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE's accelerated evolution redefines how bands come into their own. THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE tightrope walks between masterfully crafted time signatures, dense rock grooves and melodic atmosphere. Their music combines the precision and technical prowess of MESHUGGAH with the raw, emotive urgency of SHAI HULUD and MISERY SIGNALS: A sound that is loud, compelling, and unique.
