British heavy metallers Malefice are set to release their new record, ‘Awaken the Tides,’ in Europe on July 15, the UK on July 18, and North America on August 2 via Metal Blade Records.
The 10-track effort, which will mark the band’s third full-length release, was recorded at The Face studios in Reading, with drums tracked at Fortress Studios in London. All the songs were mixed and mastered by Justin Hill.
In a press statement, frontman Dale Butler remarked, “And so the time has finally come, we’ve been locked away for 6 months working on this record, a release that’s going to take your fucking head off. We promised something different, a bigger production, and a slightly different look on the genre. We’ve found our sound and it’s going to bring a whole new level to our live show, something we all felt was missing. We’ve come back a new band, confidant and more of a unit than we’ve ever been. This is our next step; make sure you’re around to see it!”
In support of their upcoming release, Malefice will be playing a hometown show at Sub89 in Reading on June 8, as well as this summer’s Download Festival.
