Metalcore outfit “I Killed the Prom Queen” are once again back on the scene, and by the looks of it, this time they are back for good. The band recently put up a video teaser for a track off their yet-to-be-named full length album which should see an early-2014 release. The band has also reportedly been recruited into the reputed “Epitaph Records” roster. Guitarist/Vocalist Jona Weinhofen (ex-Bleeding Through, ex-Bring Me The Horizon) issued the following statement on the signing:
“We are absolutely ecstatic to join the Epitaph Records family. Having worked with the label previously with Bring Me The Horizon, I knew exactly what Epitaph was capable of and that it would be the perfect home for I Killed The Prom Queen. Epitaph is already the home to so many of our heroes such as Converge, Refused, Pennywise and Every Time I Die, and has helped launch our good friends Parkway Drive, The Ghost Inside, Day Of Contempt, Letlive. and more. To say that we are a part of this family is truly an honour.”
Adding more fuel to an already promisingly inflammable first quarter (of 2014), now full-time member Weinhofen has also commented on the band’s studio status:
“We are dying to get this album out and into the hands of old and new I Killed The Prom Queen fans everywhere. 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. Its fast, melodic, heavy, catchy and we have added a couple of new elements which really bring it up there with the level of music being created these days.”
Weinhofen also stated that the album is being recorded at Studio Fredman, in Gothenburg, Sweden by Fredrik Nordstorm (Bring Me the Horizon, In Flames). The release update also included a video teaser in favour of their tie-up with Epitaph, featuring Parkway Drive’s Winston McCall delivering a testimonial. In the meantime you can also stream the latest original material they had unveiled over a year ago.
Australian fans can also catch the band in action on these dates.
