Reunited New York death metallers SUFFOCATION have set "Souls To Deny" as the title for their first full-length release since 1995's "Pierced From Within", tentatively due in the spring through Relapse Records. The songwriting process for the follow-up to the 1998 "Despise The Sun" EP has reached the midway point and plans exist for the band to self-produce the CD during January.

On Saturday November 15, SUFFOCATION are scheduled to be playing on the main stage (from 7:45 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.) at the New Jersey Metal And Hardcore Festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Other bands slated to play the same night on the same stage include HATE ETERNAL, DEICIDE, NILE, TYPE O NEGATIVE and CRADLE OF FILTH.

SUFFOCATION's current lineup consists of founding members Frank Mullen (vocals), Terrance Hobbs (guitar), Mike Smith (drums) and Josh Barohn (bass), plus longtime friend Guy Marchais (guitar, formerly of PYREXIA and INTERNAL BLEEDING).
