Pathology Announce New Album and Tour
The upcoming Victory Records debut, slated for release on July 6th, was engineered by Jeff Forest (As I Lay Dying, Bleeding Through) at Doubletime Studios in the band's home base of San Diego, CA and was mixed and mastered by Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Malevolent Creation) at Mana Studios in Tampa, FL.
"We feel the recording came out extremely heavy and exactly how we wanted," expresses drummer Dave Astor. "The drums are explosive, the guitars are thick and very tight, and the vocals are brutally crushing." The album cover displays an artistic zombie-theme, designed by Par Olofsson (Winds of Plague, Annotations Of An Autopsy, Immortal). "The cover shows a doctor injecting people with a virus that is turning them into zombies," states Astor. "It is a metaphor for the government control over our people."
Pathology is currently preparing to support their upcoming release live and in the faces of their most meaningful supporters; the fans. With the addition of second guitarist Diego Sanchez (ex-Disgorge) and bass player Oscar Ramirez (To Violently Vomit) accompanying core members, vocalist Matti Way, guitarist Tim Tiszczenko and drummer Dave Astor, Pathology has solidified their line-up.
Fans will get their first taste of the new album with regional dates leading up to the release, and soon to be announced National tours to follow. The first of these tours will be when they join Nile on the "Those Whom The Gods Detest Tour II" alongside Ex Deo, Psycroptic, and Keep of Kalessin. A full list of dates can be seen below. "We are excited to be touring with a legendary band like Nile. We're huge fans and it will be killer to share the stage with them," says Astor.
