This weeks ‘Amped artist of the week,’ is metal band, After The Burial. The video to the song, ‘Pendulum’ can be viewed below.
After The Burial’s first four years as a band, saw them go through several lineup changes. However, in recent years they seem to have found the right mix of players, and have rapidly increased in popularity, right across the globe.
They have released three full-length albums, ‘Forging A Future Self,’ ‘Rareform,’ and their latest offering ‘In Dreams,’ which was released in 2010. All three records featured a different singer, with the exception of ‘Rareform,’ which was released twice, once with former vocalist Grant Luoma, and then again with the bands current vocalist Anthony Notarmaso.
Guitarist Justin Lowe recently revealed that the band will be heading back into the studio to record the follow up to ‘In Dreams,’ early this year. “We’re all super happy to announce that we are going to quit drinking for a couple days and write a new album,” the guitarist said. “There is no telling what it is going to sound like, because it is hasn’t been recorded yet. However, one thing we can say, is that it will be an AFTER THE BURIAL album because we will be the ones performing on the record, and that is the name of our band. Ok, now seriously!”
In what truly is a massive start to the year, After The Burial have also been confirmed as a support act for Whitechapel, on their upcoming U.S. tour. You can check out the tour dates below.
