Jacksonville, FL hardcore act EVERGREEN TERRACE is pleased to announce Almost Home as the title of their upcoming release and follow up to 2007’s Wolfbiker. The band is now geared up to enter Audio Hammer Studios in Orlando, FL with Jason Suecof (Trivium, The Black Dahlia Murder, Job for a Cowboy) who will be recording vocals and handling mixing with the rest of the recording taking place with Stan Martell at Martell Studios in Kingsland, GA. Almost Home is set for a September release.
Here’s what guitarist Josh James has to say; â€œCrunch time has now approached us, with just 1 week before we go into the studio. As always, we’ve given a lot and gone through even more during this writing period. From a member of the band leaving to a death in the family: we have accepted the changes that have come and gone in our lives and it all shows in this next batch of songs. I think this record will surprise the new listeners as well as have the old ones stoked. I’d say its best described as a good mixture of Burned Alive by Time and Wolfbiker, but of course, like every band says, â€˜it’s the best record we’ve done yet!’ If you already hate our band then chances are you’ll hate this record, if you already love our band then be prepared to have a new favorite ET record. Regardless, we’re stoked.â€
Musically, EVERGREEN TERRACE takes cues from no other. The band transitions effortlessly from fast, powerful heavy hardcore to melodic punk rock. This has allowed them to tour with a diverse group since their start in late 1999 including As I Lay Dying, Strung Out, Norma Jean, Every Time I Die, Hatebreed, Thursday, Gwar and a spot on the coveted Vans Warped Tour (2008) where the band played with Against Me!, All That Remains, Angels and Airwaves, Cobra Starship, Reel Big Fish, Rise Against, A Day To Remember, and many more.
Stay tuned to the bands website and MetalBlade.com for studio updates.
