Sheffield, Yorkshire, England-based deathcore band BRING ME THE HORIZON will release its new album, "Suicide Season", on October 6 via Visible Noise. The CD will be available for digital download on September 29.
The follow-up to 2006's "Count Your Blessings", "Suicide Season" was recorded at Studio Fredman in in Arboga, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordstrm (ARCH ENEMY, DIMMU BORGIR) and according to frontman Oli Sykes, the isolation of recording an hour away from anywhere had its advantages.
"We recorded 'Count Your Blessings' in the middle of Birmingham and it was very easy to get distracted," he told Kerrang.com. "Arboga is a village with nothing in it apart from a tiny shop and that was it. We actually lived at the studio so it meant we could all just focus on the music. Fredrik was a cool guy, and he taught us how to do stuff, so at night after he'd gone home we'd still be recording the album."
According to Sykes, the new record which features guest appearances from vocalist Sam Carter of ARCHITECTS and electronic mangler Luis Dubuc of THE SECRET HANDSHAKE sees the quintet moving away from the sound of its first album.
"I'd say it's more rock than metal," he tells Kerrang.com. "It's heavy though, and it sounds a lot fatter and beefier. We've also done some mellower tracks too."
Songtitles set to appear on "Suicide Season" include "Chelsea Smile", "The Comedown" and "Football Season Is Over".
BRING ME THE HORIZON's debut album, "Count Your Blessings", was released in North America on August 14, 2007 via Earache Records.
