Drummer Michael Vafiotis of Melbourne, Australia-based metallers 4ARM has issued the following update:
"We are pleased to announce that once again Matt Hyde has been tapped in to mix the next album.
"As we all know by now, Hyde is a well-known producer and engineer who has previously worked with such acts as SLIPKNOT, TRIVIUM and MACHINE HEAD, to name a few.
"Since working with Matt on the last album and being gobsmacked by the end result, we didnt think twice in approaching him a second time.
"The album is scheduled to be mixed mid-July. Currently, we are working on ten tracks still in the pre-production stage. I can assure fans that they are too expect another dose of heavy, ball-tearing thrash laden music, with some of our fastest material to date. Markus [Johansson, guitar/vocals] has also brought something fresh and new to the table, which adds further dynamics to the new 4ARM sound. No album title nor release date has been set yet, but we will be sure to update you guys as soon as more details are confirmed."
Markus Johansson, lead vocalist and guitarist for SYLENCER, joined 4ARM in January as the replacement for Danny Tomb.
Johansson previously played guitar for 4ARM on the road in 2013 following the departure of John Paul Glovasa, who left the band due to "serious family issues."
Danny Tomb exited 4ARM in January for personal reasons.
4ARM's third studio album, "Submission For Liberty", was recorded at Melbourne Records with Danny Tomb and drummer Michael Vafiotis producing. Mixing the CD was U.K. engineer Matt Hyde (MACHINE HEAD, SLIPKNOT, TRIVIUM) and mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York City. The cover artwork was designed by Brent Elliot White, who previously worked on ARCH ENEMY's "Khaos Legions".
