Official press release:

Canadian tech death masters Archspire will be releasing their new full-length album, Bleed The Future, on October 29, 2021 via Season of Mist! The album artwork – created by Eliran Kantor, tracklist, and additional details can be found below. The band is now premiering the official music video for the spicy first single, “Golden Mouth of Ruin”, which is available here. Bleed The Future is available now for pre-order here (international) and here (North America).

Archspire comments:

“The Archspire kitchen is open for business!!! We’ll be serving up big portions of the fastest death metal your ears can handle, across Europe and the U.K., so come get an extra large helping of home made, extra creamy tech death! Make sure to leave room for dessert, because we’ll be playing songs from our upcoming album Bleed The Future! Bon appetit!”

Prior to the Faces of Death Tour overseas with Rivers of Nihil, Allegaeon, Black Crown Initiate, and To The Grave, the band will be playing an album release show in their hometown of Vancouver, B.C. at the Rickshaw Theatre on October 30! Tickets can be found HERE.

Bleed The Future was recorded in October and November 2020 at Flatline Audio in Colorado with producer/engineer Dave Otero. This was the second consecutive album the band worked with Otero. According to guitarist Tobi Morelli, the recording process was seamless. He says:

Dave was already familiar with what we each can do individually. This time, he was more prepared to tackle those elements. How he tracks was more focused on what we were capable of and I think it really shows here.”

As live show activity for 2021 hangs in the balance (Archspire currently has dates lined up for November), the pandemic has prompted many bands to re-think their new album release dates as well as how to stay visible in a world currently without touring. But, with a fanbase that has embraced the band’s online presence that includes playthroughs, tutorials and now, cooking shows (!), Archspire heads into the Bleed The Future album cycle the benefactors of their commitment to touring and, most of all, position as one of death metal’s most forward-thinking bands. Guitarist Dean Lamb says:

“We have a lot of awesome fans, so I think they’ll be there to support us and pick up the album because they like the music. We’re a self-managed band; we’ve been working with the same label for ten years and I think the outcome will be good. Would it had been better if we had been on a full North American tour starting a week before the album release? Sure, but I think people will come out and support us through other means. As soon as we’re ready to go back on tour and everybody is safe to do so, we’ll be out there.”
