Sacramento, California's EMBRACE THE END have returned with their sophomore album, "Ley Lines", which was produced by Zach Ohren (AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK, ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS) with artwork courtesy of Paul Romano (MASTODON, TRIVIUM). Once subjected to the apocalyptic abandon these Sacramento natives churn forth, it's clear they're going to be annihilating the audience and their contemporaries alike.
"Ley Lines" is set for an April 15 release and the vicious new track "Denim On Denim Hate Crime" can now be streamed at the band's MySpace page.
With a sound inspired by both metal and hardcore alike, EMBRACE THE END proves to be uncompromising in aggression and unmatched in their sound. Using a deft fusion of scathing blast beats amid a torrent of seismic breakdowns their musicianship is supreme and devastating.
The group will join up with HEAVEN SHALL BURN and THE GHOST INSIDE for a nationwide trek this April, which will lead them immediately into a run with ANIMOSITY, FIRST BLOOD and FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS.
Jesse Alford (vocals) states: "We are absolutely thrilled that this record is coming out on Century Media. The CM family has had out back for a few years now and after working our asses off by making the most boss album imaginable, it feels good. Century Media is a legendary label and we feel privileged to be a part of it. Working with Zach Ohren was the smartest choice we could have made and coupling that with the amazing artwork that Paul Romano created, is a record we can fully stand behind. Expect to see us everywhere in 2008 and we look forward to seeing you all soon."
Spending a majority of time in 2005 and 2006 on the road with bands like THE WARRIORS, BLEEDING THROUGH, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD and BLACKLISTED, the band quickly gained momentum in the underground metal and hardcore scene. Their debut, "Counting Hallways To The Left", got everyone’s attention and now with a new and revamped lineup, they are poised to showcase what it means to play with intelligence and passion.
