Threat Signal To Hit The Studio This Month

Threat Signal are set to enter the studio this month to begin recording their new album with producer Zeuss (Chimaira, All That Remains). Speaking on that, the band offered the following update:

“On June 12th we are driving our asses out to Massachusetts to begin tracking our 3rd release with metal mastermind Zeuss. He has worked on many killer albums from bands such as Chimaira, Hatebreed, All That Remains, The Acacia Strain, Born Of Osiris, Shadows Fall, and many more…We are extremely excited to have Zeuss on board producing and mixing our new record!

So what can you expect from the new Threat Signal record?Well… basically we said lets write the heaviest fuckin record we possibly can. We’ve been experimenting with 7 string guitars and drop tunings since the early days, so we have decided to write almost the whole new record that way. We are headed back to the Under Reprisal days but with bigger balls.

We will have weekly updates and video blogs of our studio progress, so keep checking back for that shit.”
