Legendary Los Angeles-based former-straight edge band Strife have announced the recording of a new album, their first in over a decade.
Recording will take place in Brazil, where Igor Cavalera of Sepultura and Cavalera Conspiracy will reprise his role as drummer, as previously heard on the landmark 1997 release In This Defiance. The album will be produced by Terror drummer Nick Jett, whose work you may have heard previously on Take Offense and Lionheart releases.
Strife guitarist Andrew Kline had this to say about their return to the studio:
This album is going to be our best release yet… We have been working on pre-production tracks for the last few months, and the songs are amazing. This record is more along the lines of [1997’s] In This Defiance, but with a harder and a little more modern edge. Plus Igor‘s drumming is really going to take everything to the next level.
No word yet on a release date.
