Rhode Island's THY WILL BE DONE recently completed work on a brand new EP that is slated for release later this summer. The band, renowned for their DIY approach, engineered the EP themselves and teamed up once again with acclaimed metal producer Zeuss to mix their six brand new studio tracks. With influences and roots that harkens the listener back to metal's glory days, and songs and arrangements that echo the voice of the oppressed and broken, the end result is a release that brings hope and far surpasses its predecessors, and in all aspects possesses the capabilities of cementing THY WILL BE DONE's position in the metal world. More details, including title and release date will be revealed in the coming weeks. Check out a video preview for the EP HERE.
Today Revolvermag.com the online home of Revolver Magazine is hosting an exclusive stream of a new song from the forthcoming EP. Be one of the first to hear "You, The Apathy Divine" HERE courtesy of Revolver Magazine.
Frontman J. Costa spoke about the new song "You, The Apathy Divine":
"The song, 'You, The Apathy Divine' occurs in what is the proverbial middle of the EP and is a pivotal point of the recording with its own musical and lyrical intermezzo.
For me, its timbre exudes the anguish and despair of someone dealing with infidelity after having just lost multiple relatives. That's what happened in my life and I needed to express it."
THY WILL BE DONE will be taking part in the "Orion Music + More Festival" curated by METALLICA. The event is set for Saturday June 23rd and Sunday June 24th at Bader Field in Atlantic City, NJ. More information can be found at: http://www.orionmusicandmore.com
Following their appearance at the "Orion Music + More Festival" the band will be headed to Japan for a co-headlining tour with Japanese crossover legends The Aggressive Dogs. The tour will kick off on June 29th in Kasihwa and runs through July 8th in Nagoya. A list of confirmed dates can be found below.
With this current line-up of J. Costa on vocals, Kurt Fraunfelter on rhythm guitar, Chris Drapeau on lead guitar, Brendan Misturado on bass and Jay Waterman on drums, a plethora of foreign and domestic performances, and literally hundreds of thousands of miles traveled, it appears that values and drive mixed with an old school metal and rock 'n' roll upbringing have brought together a juggernaut of a band that's clearing a path with a working-class ideology.
THY WILL BE DONE represents another chapter in the evolution of heavy metal. Their 2012 dose blends the thrash and groove elements that offered some of the late eighties and early nineties most memorable bands and albums, and yes, there are even solos too. THY WILL BE DONE is poised and ready to continue the heavy metal lineage and illuminate a new generation with the ways of the old.
