Published Nov 13, 2013Long-running punk label Epitaph has once again set its sights on the international metalcore scene, having just signed reunited Australian vets I Killed the Prom Queen to a new record deal.
The move was announced today (November 13), and the label reports that the band are expected to issue their third full-length sometime in 2014. While neither an album name nor song info has been delivered, a press release notes that the record was tracked with producer Fredrik Nordström (Bring Me the Horizon, At the Gates, In Flames) in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The album will be the band's first since 2006's Music for the Recently Deceased, which had been released by Metal Blade Records. The band split up in 2007, but reformed for a farewell tour in 2008, and officially got back to business in 2011.
"We are dying to get this album out and into the hands of old and new I Killed the Prom Queen fans everywhere," guitarist Jona Weinhofen said in a statement. "To me this record feels as though I Killed the Prom Queen never took a break and is a natural progression of the band. You will hear hints of our side projects and new influences, but make no mistake, this is an I Killed the Prom Queen record through and through."
The group also have plans to tour in 2014, with info on the trip and the album expected sometime in the future. In the meantime, you can check out a trailer for the LP down below.
