Born Of Osiris About To Hit The Road: Announce Plans For New Album

bornofosirisbanner

Starting on Thursday, Born Of Osiris will be hitting the road with Unearth for the month of November. Support will also come from The Contortionist, Obey The Brave, and Wolves At The Gate. Then, in February, the band will be touring Europe with After The Burial, Monuments, and The Haarp Machine.

However, the band is not only content hitting the road. They’ve also announced that they are close to completing the songwriting process for their follow-up to The Discovery and will enter the studio in the spring with Nick Sampson (I Am Abomination) to track the new effort.

Lee McKinney (guitars) states: “I would say the direction of this album is along the lines of The Discovery, but definitely a lot heavier and a lot more focused when it comes to song structure. We’re trying to give each song a powerful, thematic feel. This next record takes all of the best aspects of The Discovery and develops the ideas even further. We already have so much material that we plan on revising and refining over the next few months. While we do that we will still continue to write more and in the end I think we’ll pick the strongest 10-12 songs so we can drop the best BORN OF OSIRIS record to date.

Read on for more from Lee as well as the full touring schedule.

McKinney adds, “On March 22nd we start recording the record with Nick Sampson. We’re very excited to work with him in the studio. He’s a shredder and aside from that a great engineer/producer. Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, Emmure) will be handling the mixing of the project. We felt he was the best for the job since we have a lot of electronic elements in our music and he seems to be the master of all that these days. Not to mention he obviously has insanely tight production and mixing skills. The disc is set for a summer release and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve created.

In other news, we’re heading out this week on our co-headliner with Unearth. It’s such an honor to be able to bring them with us on tour. I remember being 16 delivering pizzas blasting The Oncoming Storm in my car. We’ve toured with them before a couple times as well and they are some of the most fun dudes to be on the road with. Also rounding out the tour is The Contortionist, Obey the Brave and Wolves at the Gate. People can expect to see our longest live set yet. We’re playing songs off of The Discovery that we have yet to play on any other tours. Come hang with us!
