The reactivated original lineup of Spineshank featuring Jonny Santos (vocals), Tommy Decker (drums), Mike Sarkisyan (guitar) and Rob Garcia (bass) has set "Anger Denial Acceptance" as the title of its recently completed new album for a 2011 release via an as-yet-undetermined record label. The CD was recorded at Mid City Sound studios in Burbank, California. Spineshank in 2008 posted a new track, "Born Conform Repent", on the band's MySpace page. Other new songtitles include "I Am Damage", "Anger Denial Acceptance" and "The Reckoning". On the subject of Spineshank's current musical direction, Tommy previously said, "First of all, you don't have to worry about us abandoning our sound; there will be plenty of electronics/loops/synths on this record. Jonny is also singing better than he ever has, so there will be a ton of singing and melody as well. This will definitely be heavier than our previous albums but it will not be all bashing. I can wholeheartedly promise you that we will not be trying to be anything we are not. This is simply going to be Spineshank [several] years later. There will be a few new elements but it will be undeniably us (for better or worse!!!)." Spineshank's third and last album, "Self-Destructive Pattern", was released on September 9, 2003. The album's lead single, "Smothered", was nominated for a Grammy in the category of "Best Metal Performance". Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    Always liked these guys! Kinda wild that they're coming out with a new album, though.

    Sweet! Even though it's been a while I have high expectations for this new album. "Born Conform Repent" imo is a great song to get them back in the game. Definately looking forward to this release.

    Used to be way into these guys. Thought they were gone for good! Might check it out just for the hell of it, although them saying it will be heavier while adding more singing and melody makes me think it will sound like some generic metalcore album.

    Really? Last I heard they are no longer signed with Roadrunner and are looking for a new record company to release this new album. lol, just imagine not being able to play the songs you wrote just because somebody else owns it's rights. Hopefully, they worked out a deal with Roadrunner by now.

    So have they sorted out their legal issues with Roadrunner? Last I heard they were not allowed to play their own back-catalog live because Roadrunner owned the songs, not them.

    dude...spineshank? What an obscure band to have on the front page. I heard one song of theirs years and years ago when I was hugely into anybody signed to Roadrunner, and even then I thought they were mediocre.

    I thought it was just as good as Rebirth of the Temple. Two of the most underrated and underappreciated metalcore albums ever.

    Silent civilian was interesting but didn't hook me in, let's hope Spineshank's return doesn't disappoint

    Very, very old news, we knew this months ago... Still very excited nonetheless being a long time fan. The new songs sound a bit heavier than previous Spineshank material (more Silent Civilian-like) but it still has traditional Spineshank sound. I'm just waiting for news for when this album is actually going to drop already since there hasn't been any news on that...

    I liked these guys back in the day, though they've been out the game for a long time now. Sadly I think there's no market for them now as everyone seems to have sold out to electronica, dance, and country music these days.

    Wasnt as good as rebirth of the temple IMO but I still didn't mind it

    These guys seemed to be more progressive than most in terms of nu-metal so might be interesting to see what they cough up. (Some elements of that last album definitely veered towards emo though so less of that hopefully.)
