Prepare your ear holes! The Contortionist are making a return!
Groundbreaking heavy progressive rock band THE CONTORTIONIST will release an all new LP titled Language on September 16th, 2014 via eOne Music / Good Fight Music. The band spent time with producer Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME) at The Basement Recording Studio in Winston-Salem, NC. “Making this record from start to finish was quite an experience,” says guitarist Robby Baca.“From the initial attempts at song writing to the tracking sessions with Jamie, it’s an experience that I cant wait to share with everyone.”
Language will be the third LP installment from the band and first with new vocalist Michael Lessard who offers, “I’m beyond happy to share this album with people! The experience and result are something I’m very proud to have been a part of. I think this album will show how we’ve all progressed as writers and players.”
Speculation and anticipation are running high. The press release gives hints but we're really curious to see how the album turns out, especially with the addition of Mr. Lessard. There was a a notable change of sound from "Exoplanet" to "Intrinsic", both of which are incredible albums. But the statement from Lessard makes it sound like they might contortion into a different approach.
Stay tuned for more where that came from. And in the mean time, devour this music!
