American technical death metal innovators ORIGIN have announced the addition of vocalist Jason Keyser (SKINLESS, MUCOPUS) to the group's ranks.

Keyser will make his live debut with ORIGIN as part of the upcoming North American tour with HATE ETERNAL, VITAL REMAINS and ABYSMAL DAWN. The trek is scheduled to kick off on June 15 at Emo's in Austin, Texas.

ORIGIN last fall inked a worldwide recording contract with Nuclear Blast Records. The band, which is responsible for such genre-defining classics as "Informis Infinitas", "Inhumanitas" (2002) and "Antithesis" (2008), entered Chapman Recording Studios in Lenexa, Kansas in November with longtime engineer Robert Rebeck to record its Nuclear Blast debut. Rebeck's work can be heard on ORIGIN's "Antithesis" and "Echoes Of Decimation" (2005) albums in addition to the "A Coming Into Existence" demo (1998). Ryan Caddell, who directed and filmed the video clip for "Portal" and the bonus video on "Echoes Of Decimation", joined the guys in the studio once again to document the creative process leading up to the creation of ORIGIN's fifth album plus capture all the behind-the-scenes mayhem.

View the video for the song "Finite" off the "Antithesis" album below. The clip was directed by David Brodsky (KATAKLYSM, ARSIS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) of MyGoodEye.
