Signs Of The Swarm Debut “Tempting Death”, Chelsea Grin’s Tom Barber Guests


Signs Of The Swarm‘s new song “Tempting Death” can newly be heard online via the below lyric video. The track features guest vocals from Chelsea Grin frontman Tom Barber. It comes from Signs Of The Swarm‘s new album, “Vital Deprivation“, which is headed for an October 11th release on Unique Leader.

That record was tracked, mixed and mastered by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life) at Think Loud Studios in York, PA. Speaking of it, the group issued the following statement:

“We are pleased to present our third album via Unique Leader Records, ‘Vital Deprivation‘.

We began writing for the album shortly after TDOE was released. From the beginning we had a sound in mind that was more aggressive and fast paced, but equally as brutal as our previous releases.

What makes this album different from our past is that we wrote with pleasing ourselves in mind first and foremost. We’ve covered a lot of ground in just under 40 minutes. Some of the album may be what you expect to hear from us, and hopefully some may not.

David Simonich is a powerhouse of a vocalist bringing a whole new range of motion to the band’s spectrum. His lyrical content and cadence bring a more emotional and poetic energy to Signs while retaining the aggression he’s become known for.

We’d like to thank Carson Slovak & Grant McFarland for helping us to shape this album into a coherent message from beginning to end.

Thank you to our fans who have supported us relentlessly, this is the first of many to come.

Please enjoy ‘Vital Deprivation‘.”

It’s an interesting turn of events that Barber guests on this new track. Signs Of The Swarm‘s former vocalist CJ McCreery exited the band last year to join Lorna Shore, taking over the spot previously held by Barber. Barber himself had left Lorna Shore to join Chelsea Grin.

Pre-orders for the new album are available at this location. In addition to their run on the ‘Bloodletting North American Tour‘ with Disentomb, Visceral Disgorge, Continuum and more, the band will also be playing the following shows on their own with Visceral Disgorge:

09/07 Erie, PA – Basement Transmissions
09/08 Dayton, OH – Turnbuckles & Brews
09/09 Colombia, MO – PDM
09/10 Oklahoma City, OK – 89th Street
