Swedish Industrial Gothic / Glam Metal quintet Deathstars are pleased to announce that their much-anticipated new studio album is set for release in February 2014 via Nuclear Blast Records, their first since 2009’s "Night Electric Night". The recordings will take place in Studio Bohus with Roberto Laghi who will co-produce the album together with 'Nightmare Industries'. Cat Casino had left the band for other ventures and naturally "Night Electric Night" is the only album he is featured on, meaning Deathstars have now reverted back to their original four-piece setup.
Lead vocalist Whiplasher Bernadotte shares his thoughts on the forthcoming full-length:
'Deathstars is an adventure for us. It’s as if it is a phenomenon of it’s own, and our forum for destruction, glitter and darkness. We are very excited about the new material and every time we hit the studio we never know what the outcome will be, i mean we have a general idea but we’re never a 100% sure how the final result will be until we’re done and can sit back and listen to it'.
This UK tour will be a showcase of everything Deathstars have achieved as a band so far, and also support their newly released material! Tour dates as follows (Ticket links included):
TUE 25 MARCH - LONDON - THE GARAGE
WED 26 MARCH - MANCHESTER - ACADEMY 3
THU 27 MARCH - WOLVERHAMPTON - SLADE ROOMS
Stay tuned for more info regarding their forthcoming album and supports to be announced soon!

Industrial metallers hERETICS iN tHE lAB unveil new lyric video for 'Some People' via VampireFreaks.com
hERETICS iN tHE lAB are currently set to release their new album, "Suture", via Sacrifice Records on November 12, 2013. Today, VampireFreaks.com is unleashing the band’s brand new lyric video for the track ‘Some People’. Check it out now at this location.
Main instrumentalist and producer h3 explains the meaning behind the track, stating, “‘Some People’ is a song about pacified people who want be told what to think and want to believe what they're told. It's a warning to make sure those same people know to stay away from me."
h3 is the primary backbone of hERETICS iN tHE lAB on "Suture". Although the band performs live with additional members M1 (keys), tB (drums), kV (guitars), h3 creates all that is hERETICS iN tHE lAB, not unlike many of industrial’s greatest musical minds.
Drawing comparisons to Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Bile and Marilyn Manson, hERETICS iN tHE lAB has established themselves in the underground goth / industrial scene as a force to be reckoned with while still managing to appeal to more mainstream fans of heavy metal and rock. Known for the shear emotional intensity of their live shows as well as their erratic unpredictable song structures hERETICS iN tHE lAB consistently challenges unprepared audiences and leaves them awe-inspired.
Born from social loathing, an evolved conscious, and experimentation in sonic terrorism, Virginia-natives hERETICS iN tHE lAB take elements of industrial music, fine art, post-apocalyptic rock and roll, and avant-garde sound-scapes to form an incredibly intense hard-line industrial music experience drenched in ego and libido.
The band has a static video out now for their first single ‘Skin’, available for viewing here.
The band will perform at a few local tour dates in the come months. See below for all dates, including the CD release party for "Suture".
Upcoming hERETICS iN tHE lAB tour dates:
10/25 Washington, DC @ Phase 1 Dupont – Bound Festival
10/31 Virginia Beach, VA @ The Jewish Mother Hilltop w/ Deist Requiem & Pillbuster
11/12 Norfolk, VA @ The Wave ***CD Release Party***
