Queens, New York-based deathcore act EMMURE will enter the studio later this year to begin recording its sixth full-length album for a spring 2014 release via Victory Records.

EMMURE will close out 2013 by headlining the Never Say Die! tour in Europe (October 4-26) and then a full U.S. tour (October 29 – November 22) alongside ASKING ALEXANDRIA, SEVENDUST, ALL THAT REMAINS and FOR TODAY.

Comments EMMURE guitarist and founding member Jesse Ketive: “We couldn’t be happier to announce that following Never Say Die! and the ASKING ALEXANDRIA tour, we will be heading into the studio to work on the new album which is aimed for a spring release!

“We have been working hard in between our rigorous world touring schedule this past year and a half and we can’t wait to unveil new material.

“We have re-signed to Victory Records and there will be a lot of new things developing for EMMURE through the end of the year.

“Thank you for your constant support through the years and we promise to deliver one of the best EMMURE records to date. See you on tour.”

EMMURE‘s fifth full-length album, “Slave To The Game”, was released in April 2012 via Victory Records. The CD was recorded with producer Joey Sturgis (ASKING ALEXANDRIA, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA), who previously worked with the band on 2011’s “Speaker Of The Dead”.

“Slave To The Game” marked the recording debut of EMMURE‘s new drummer, Mark Costillo, who has previously played with BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and BURY YOUR DEAD.

In an interview with Alternative Press, EMMURE vocalist Frank Palmeri stated about “Slave To The Game”, “I think this record is just brutal-sounding. It’s got everything I think that people expect from us — and I mean that in the sense that we kind of gave people, or at least for ourselves, more of what we felt the music should be from EMMURE. I’m probably making no sense right now. [laughs] It’s just a heavy fucking record. It’s another EMMURE record that hopefully people get to enjoy with us, because we dig it and that’s what it comes down to. We just make albums we try to enjoy and hopefully people can come along for the ride.”

When asked what Joey Sturgis brought to the recording this time around, Palmeri said, “He’s got kind of amazing input as far as the music goes and his creative mind. He’s a pro at what he does. Honestly, as far as heavy music goes right now — especially with this new age of bands that have come up and become so popular — a lot of their success is owed to Joey Sturgis. He’s not only such a talented engineer and producer, but he’s just a creative person all around that really brings something extra to the table when something is lacking or even perhaps just a new fresh mind to material that maybe bands themselves weren’t aware of. It’s always good to have an outside perspective from someone who is just talented. It paid off for us on our last album and I think this one as well.”

“The Vinnie Langdon Show” conducted an interview with the British metalcore act ASKING ALEXANDRIA at the Aftershock festival, which took place September 14-15 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California. You can now watch the chat below.

ASKING ALEXANDRIA‘s third album, “From Death To Destiny”, sold 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart. This achievement not only marks the group’s highest-charting debut ever, but also Sumerian Records‘ highest first-week sales to date.

“From Death To Destiny” debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. rock and metal chart. It’s another first for the band, and it’s particularly special for the band to garner so much support throughout their home country.

Commented ASKING ALEXANDRIA guitarist Ben Bruce: “It’s taken long enough! It wasn’t because we were being lazy, but because we wanted it to be perfect. ‘From Death To Destiny’ is our third album and we wanted to make sure we’d bring out the best possible record we could.”

He continued: “This is our biggest sounding record and alongside the classic ASKING ALEXANDRIA stuff — the breakdown sections, heavy sections, fast sections — we’ve thrown a lot of new influences in there. It’s a very diverse album and I think people who pigeonholed us are going to realize they were wrong when they hear it.”

Issued on August 6 via Sumerian Records, “From Death To Destiny” was recorded with renowned producer Joey Sturgis (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, EMMURE).

Most of the new CD was tracked at Sturgis‘ studio in Indiana, while the vocals and strings and choir parts were laid down at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California.
