Facedown Records and Saving Grace are excited to announce some long awaited news in regards to the band’s highly anticipated brand new studio album ‘The Urgency’.
The band along with their management company and record label with some help from their fans and friends seeded a series of five ominous symbols and a hashtag all over social media sites in early November for #theurgency and announced that ‘All will be revealed 11.11.13’ creating a lot of hype and speculation. Today marks that very day and the artwork for the brand new record along with an exclusive stream of the track ‘1994’ can be found above.
Produced and Engineered in New Zealand by California’s Zack Ohren (The Ghost Inside, First Blood, Carnifex, All Shall Perish), ‘The Urgency’ is the band’s most raw and aggressive effort to date and sees a return to earlier roots of their original sound which is heavily influenced by traditional European metalcore and mixed with stylings of American hardcore and death metal. Original artwork for ‘The Urgency’ was created by UK artist Colin Marks (Whitechapel, Impending Doom, Oceano, All Shall Perish).
Exclusive pre-order packages and merch bundles for the record will be available December 10th on Merchnow.com ahead of it’s official street date of January 21st.
Saving Grace have already announced dates at two of New Zealand’s biggest summer events including Parachute Festival 2014 alongside The Devil Wears Prada, MXPX and more and Westfest 2014 alongside KoRn, Megadeth and Rob Zombie.
Further tour dates in support of the new record are scheduled to surface shortly.
