Obituary Partner With Relapse For Crowdfunded New Album


Obituary have partnered with Relapse to release their as-yet untitled new album. The veteran outfit crowdfunded $60,669 for that outing last year and recorded it this past April at their own RedNeck Studio in Gibsonton, FL. Mixes are currently being finalized for the effort with the band stating of it:

“We don’t know how to explain it but we really hit the “metal nail” on the head with this album. We have been writing and working on the new material for nearly 3 years now and we could not be more excited how these songs have all turned out. All the stars seem to have aligned for us and this release, with the songs, production and overall feel of this record, the band is more solid than ever.”

They also spoke on why they decided to partner with Relapse after having already crowdfunded the impressive sum for the outing:

“We always knew that our fans were some of the most devoted fans on the planet and they proved it by stepping up, being a part of something new and supporting us with our KickStarter campaign. This was an amazing display of true fan support and we could not be more proud of everyone who helped raise the money to record this album by pre-ordering it, buying all the cool stuff we offered and just being a part of something that we believe will be the way of the future.

Now we have teamed up with Relapse Records to have them get this new album out there, in stores and available to the fans world wide. We are very excited about our partnership with Relapse and are looking forward to working beside them with the release. They are a great label and super cool people who have shown us that they are excited to have Obituary on their roster and are ready to push this album to its fullest potential.”
