Pennsylvania‘s WAR OF AGES will release its fifth album, “Return To Life“, on April 24 via Facedown Records. The CD was recorded with producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris at Planet Z Studios (SHADOWS FALL, CHIMAIRA, HATEBREED) and it features some of the band’s “most personal material,” according to a press release.
WAR OF AGES has toured with AS I LAY DYING, DEMON HUNTER, SOILWORK, NORMA JEAN, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, and more, and will be headlining this year’s Facedown Fest on April 7 in Pomona, California.
Commented the band: “We are extremely excited about our ‘Return To Life‘ release in every way. Musically, we stuck to our roots, brought back the heavy rhythmic style and mixed it with the maturity of having four previous albums under our belts. We also joined forces with producer Zeuss, who boasts a catalog with names like TERROR, EMMURE, HATEBREED, etc… Not only is this album instrumentally rhythmic, it is also vocally rhythmic. Leroy [Hamp, vocals] stepped out of his comfort zone and ventured into the realms of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, COMEBACK KID, and DARKEST HOUR, and mixed each with his own style. We plan to continue in this direction lyrically, vocally, and musically for our future albums.
“Return To Life” will be released on CD, LP and digital formats.
