In celebration of the imminent release, MetalSucks has partnered with the band to exclusively stream the record in full.

Welcome (One And Come All)
Not For Nothin’
Like A Memory
Check out PAINTED IN EXILE‘s new music video for “House of Cards”, originally revealed last month. The cinematic video, directed by Tom Flynn, can be viewed here:
The Ordeal was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Jamie King – recognized for his work with bands such as Between the Buried And Me, The Contortionist, Scale The Summit and other modern progressive metal mainstays. The album was recorded at both Basement Recording Studios in Winston-Salem, NC and The Fidelitorium in Kernersville, NC. Orchestral arrangements on the album were written by Alan Hankers. Additional production and engineering support was provided by PAINTED IN EXILE guitarist Ivan Chopik.
After unquestionably solidifying themselves as a band-to-watch in the progressive metal scene with 2008’s 3.14 demo and 2009’s Revitalized EP – the latter of which NoCleanSinging.com called, “a creative fireball of attention-grabbing music,” and TeethOfTheDivine.com touted as “mind-blowing” – fans have been eagerly awaiting a full-fledged comeback. After dropping a track here (specifically “DM”) and a hint there for the last few years, PAINTED IN EXILE fully crowd-funded The Ordeal this year with massive fan support via Indiegogo campaign (the band actually surpassed their goal of $15,000).
PAINTED IN EXILE will hit three cities on a mini tour with Intervals and Plini beginning next week in Cleveland, OH. See below for all confirmed dates.
