Florida industrial metal act Crossbreed will release their new album "KE 101" on September 15th, 2009 through Driven Music Group, the independent label founded by former Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch. The band has scheduled a series of warm up dates in September before embarking on a full scale US tour later this year.
"You would figure after the collapse of Artemis Records, and replacing 4 of the 6 original members would have done this band, but we have so many more people to piss off before this show can be over,
" says frontman James Breed
. "This album is the culmination of blood, sweat and tears for us and I know people have been waiting for a long time for us to release this album. We can’t wait to hear people’s reactions to the new material and hope to see everybody out at these upcoming shows we have coming up in Florida later in the month.
Now signed to Driven Music Group, Crossbreed is ready to take their brand of sonic destruction to new heights. The group’s new album, "KE 101", takes the slamming amalgamation of techno pulses and trademark grinding guitars Crossbreed is known for and melds it with infectious songwriting. The group is currently offering a free t-shirt with anyone who pre-orders the new album online.
Crossbreed has also revealed the track listing for the long-awaited new album is as follows:
01. Kill Everything
05. TB Not
06. The Calling
07. End Of Days
09. Saints Of Grey
Crossbreed burst into the spotlight when they dropped their debut album "Synthetic Division" and took to the road with the likes of German industrial metal act Rammstein and theatrical metal powerhouse Mushroomhead, along with countless others. The group was discovered by Canadian metal band Kittie, who brought the tape to the attention of its then-label Artemis Records who eventually signed the group. The group’s debut album, "Synthetic Division", went on to sell over 50,000 copies in the United States, while the band continued to tour across the country.
