Anyone for progressive death metal laced with hints of the likes of Darkest Hour, Misery Signals and Converge? We thought so. Please give a warm welcome to Vancouver's NECK OF THE WOODS, the brand new addition to the Basick roster!
To coincide with the signing announcement, the band's brand new single 'Bottom Feeder' is premiering exclusively through Decibel Magazine right now! The gloriously dark and heavy single is taken from the band's upcoming album, 'The Passenger'. Set for release through Basick on September 15th, the nine-track offering capture the band’s crushing blend of progressive, death-inspired, technical, and groove-laden metal.
Formed in early 2014, NECK OF THE WOODS’ exhilarating brand of progressive metal and charged live shows have quickly earned them a reputation as one of the most exciting acts to emerge from Vancouver’s metal scene.
The group’s complex and dynamic sound along with frontman Jeff Radomsky’s resonating live performance helped the band quickly rise to prominence, resulting in the band representing Vancouver in the Wacken Metal Battle Finals in Toronto mere months after their first show. In May 2015, NECK OF THE WOODS released their blistering debut EP, with significant critical acclaim coming from as far afield as Denmark. Summer 2016 saw them accompany metalcore legends Misery Signals on the Canadian leg of their 2016 tour as well as embarking on their very own tour of Western Canada.
Their debut album 'The Passenger' was recorded at Rain City Recorders by Stu McKillop, produced by Stu McKillop and the band, with art direction by vocalist Jeff Radomsky and layout design by Kevin Moore at Soft Surrogate. The release of their new album will see NECK OF THE WOODS further entrench the already significant impact they have had on Canada’s metal scene.
NECK OF THE WOODS will advance 'The Passenger' with regional performances throughout the summer months, with several shows already booked for July and August including providing main support for Every Time I Die, a set at Loud As Hell Metal Fest, and a month-long, cross-Canada tour which will be announced in the days ahead.
Digital pre-orders will be available across all platforms from tomorrow - links to follow!
