Iwrestledabearonce Changing It Up On New Album
The album will mark the first time the band will record with their new frontwoman Courtney LaPlante, who joined the band while they were on last summer's Warped tour.
"Since the day I joined this band, I've been anticipating this album!," says LaPlante. "I was pushed to the limit creatively and technically, and I've never been more proud of myself or my bandmates. We've been through alot this year, and this is the pay-off; the result of our experiences. Most importantly, I think IWABO fans both old and new will really enjoy these songs, and we can't wait to play them live for you this summer!"
Guitarist and programmer Steven Bradley is producing, engineering, mixing and mastering the album which they are recording in Los Angeles.
Bradley had this to say about the album, "Well damn! After another two years of non-stop touring, some unexpected twists, and getting to visit some new and amazing places, we're finally back in the studio working on full length number three!.
"I've 100% NEVER been this excited about an IWABO album, because it feels like we've finally reigned in "our sound" even further and really hit a stride in terms of songwriting. We've always admired bands like Deftones, Cynic, Thrice, Glassjaw, Mr. Bungle, Dredg, Cephalic Carnage, The Mars Volta, etc because they've never made the same album twice, and aren't scared to keep evolving while still maintaining their signature styles.
"Obviously I'd never compare us to the greatness of those bands, but, in keeping with that mentality, we've progressed a bit more and put together our best collection of songs so far.
