New Album Available April 29th on
Metal Blade Records
Our Endless War WHITECHAPEL‘s fifth full-length record and fourth for Metal Blade Records is a ruthlessly honed album that refuses to compromise on brutality; it is also by far WHITECHAPEL‘s most streamlined, atmospheric, and emotionally powerful release, pushing every aspect of their sound to the next level. The wait is almost over and in less then two weeks, Our Endless War will be released to the masses.
On release day Tuesday April 29th, hometown fans in Knoxville, TN will have a chance to meet WHITECHAPEL and pick up a copy of Our Endless War at a special in-store autograph signing. The signing will take place at FYE at the West Town Mall located at 7600 Kingston, Pike Ste. 1464 in Knoxville, TN. The signing begins at 7:00 PM.
During the recording of Our Endless War the band shot a series of behind the scenes and in-studio videos documenting the process. Today the third episode in the series has been released. This video takes a closer looks at Phil’s performance and lyrics on the album. This album is his darkest and most personal material to date lyrically and in the video he explains the meaning behind some of the songs on the album. The clip can be viewed HERE.
The first episode in the series focuses on the pre-production and the band’s writing process for the new album. It can be viewed HERE. The second video showcases each member sharing their part in tracking the riffs that made up the album and can be viewed HERE.
Earlier this week WHITECHAPEL premiered a lyric video for the song “Our Endless War” on Artist Direct. It can be viewed HERE.
