Melbourne, Australia's dark rockers THE ETERNAL entered 301 Studios in Byron Bay on December 4 with acclaimed producer and multi-platinum recording artist Jeff Martin (THE ARMADA, THE TEA PARTY) to begin recording their fourth full-length album, "Under A New Sun", tentatively due in early 2010. Songtitles set to appear on the follow-up to last year's "Kartika" include "Control", "Under A New Sun", "A Thousand Shades of You", "Collapse" and "Cast In Stone".
Commented the band: "We are at the final stages of the recording process. All the music and most of the mixing is done.
"We will head back to 301 with Jeff Martin at the start of Febuary to track vocals and add the final touches to the mix.
"The sound has to be the best we have produced to date, so at the moment we are feeling quite proud of this one.
"We have no plans for the release date at this stage as we would like to take our time and shop this album around, but expect to be hearing it in 2010."

"Under A New Sun" is being co-engineered by Paul Pilsneniks who has worked with such artists as THE LIVING END, THE MARS VOLTA, SILVERCHAIR, GRINSPOON and ALANIS MORISSETTE. THE ETERNAL has also enlisted acclaimed Finnish keyboard player Maria Ilmoniemi (TARJA, HUSKY RESCUE) to contribute.
