SPINESHANK will enter a Los Angeles studio on June 24th with producer Howard Benson (i.e. P.O.D., SEPULTURA, CRAZY TOWN) to begin tracking their third full-length album, entitled Violent Mood Swings, for a late 2002 release through Roadrunner Records. According to guitarist Mike Sarkisyan "the tittle track is brutal—probably the heaviest thing we've ever done… this record has some of the heaviest, fastest stuff we've ever done, and some of the most melodic. Overall, I think it's more 'extreme' in every aspect." Other cuts set to appear on the album include "Obsessive Compulsive", "Dead To Me", and "Self Destructive Pattern".
