Pestilence Preparing For New Album With New Lineup and New Deal
Frontman Patrick Mameli will likely produce the album. For the recording he will be joined by the new lineup that include long-time guitarist Patrick Uterwijk with new bassist George Maier and drummer Dave Haley.
Mameli had this to say, "Pestilence is chuffed to have Dave Haley in the lineup. Dave is one of the five best extreme drummers in the world, and his talent brings Pestilence to new levels that couldn't be reached otherwise. Georg Maier is a young and talented bass player that will turn some heads. Both guys are really down to earth and real easy going. Of course, Patrick Uterwijk is my most respectable and long-going friend and musician."
The band issued these remarks about their new record deal, "Pestilence is very excited to announce that they have signed a recording deal with Candlelight Records. We feel that our new material is very special and innovative and that it needs the back up of a solid company like Candlelight to get it out there to the metal world."
