Published Jul 17, 2015Gaslight Anthem guitarist Alex Rosamilia is side-stepping the long-running New Jersey unit's melodic rock sound with a new metal project called Servitude. While physical copies of the group's debut, No Foxhole Prayers, are forthcoming, a stream of the EP has been posted online.
A press release explains that Servitude was started up by Rosamilia and vocalist Dan Pelic, who had previously teamed up in metalcore crew Something About Death or Dying. After writing a few songs together in 2013, the pair linked up with guitarist Brad Clifford (Sincebyman, Poison the Well), Ensign member Corey Perez and drummer Eric Schnee.
Recording sessions were done between late 2014 and July 2015, with engineering duties having been handled by Frank Marra at Jersey City's Tree House Sound.
The five-song No Foxhole Prayers is currently streaming via Bandcamp, and is up for sale for an ungodly $666 USD. You should probably wait a couple months to pick up the release for yourself, though, as Rosamilia plans to issue the EP properly through his own Human Blood Records at a later date. Though a firm arrival time has yet to be delivered, it'll be issued sometime by the end of the year.
In the meantime, you can sample the band's first grinding offering down below.
Servitude play their first show on July 31 at Jersey City venue the Funhouse.
