WOE To Release 'Quietly, Undramatically' In October

Candlelight Records has set an October 12 North American release date for "Quietly, Undramatically", the new album from WOE. Recorded at Gradwell House in Haddon Heights, New Jersey with additional tracking completed at frontman Chris Grigg's BS1 in Philadelphia, the CD is the first to feature a full band ensemble comprised of members from ABSU, WOODS OF YPRES, THE GREEN EVENING REQUIEM, INFERNAL STRONGHOLD and RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER.

Formed in 2007, WOE originally began as a solo project of Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist Chris Grigg. Popular site Metal Review called WOE's debut, "A Spell For The Death Of Man" (2008, Stronghold Records), "easily 2008's most criminally overlooked album."

Grigg reveals, "'Quietly, Undramatically' is a major step forward for WOE. Not only is it our first release for Candlelight Records but the debut of WOE: the band as opposed to WOE: the solo project. The performances of Evan Madden (drums) and Shane Madden (bass) bring WOE to a whole new level. It is a much more mature album, featuring dynamics and ideas that WOE has never been able to tackle before. We are all very excited for this album's release and the subsequent live performances in support of it!"

"Quietly, Undramatically" is WOE's first release for England's Candlelight Records. The album reunites the band with designer/illustrator Justin Miller. "Justin and I have worked together on different projects for years now and he has never let me down," says Grigg. "I consider his art an additional song on the album — the most important song, the one that ties it all together. Sound is what I do, sight is what he does, and it is a relief to know that Woe's presentation is handled with such feeling."

"Quietly, Undramatically" track listing:

01. No Solitude
02. The Road From Recovery
03. Quietly, Undramatically
04. A Treatise on Control
05. Without Logic
06. Full Circle
07. Hatred is Our Heart

WOE will celebrate the album's release with a free performance, along with labelmates KRIEG, at Philadelphia’s Kung Fu Necktie (1248 North Front Street) on October 28.
