Death metal legends Internal Bleeding has signed a new record deal with death metal and progressive label Unique Leader Records. They will bring a new album, Corrupting Influence, on October 19th. The band will share new music and pre-orders bundles soon. IT will be the first album to feature guitarist Chris McCarthy and drummer Kyle Eddy, following the tragic passing of Bill Tolley last year. The band will take part in the upcoming “Bloodletting North America Tour” with Arsis, Decrepit Birth, Pyrexia, Angelmaker, and Within Destruction.
Founding guitarist Chris Pervelis commented:
“Corrupting Influence is filled with all of the gut twisting heaviness and groove you’d expect from us, but there’s also plenty of unexpected twists that take a listener to places we’ve never gone before. Additionally, the production is right where it should be — heavy as f*ck, organic and live sounding.”
Guitarist Chris McCarthy added:
“I grew up as a fan of IB, so I put everything in my ability to make this the sickest IB album ever.”
The album was produced by the band alongside Joe Cincotta at Full Force Studios (Suffocation, Dehumanized) in Ronkonkoma, NY, engineered by Cincotta, and features artwork by guitarist Chris Pervelis.
Corrupting Influence track listing:
1. Compelled to Consume
2. Corrupting Influence
3. Fatal Dependency
5. Surrounded from the Inside
7. Litany of Insincerity
8. Final Justice
9. The Supreme Sacrifice
Pre-order bundles for Corrupting Influence will be available in the coming weeks.
To coincide with the release of Corrupting Influence, INTERNAL BLEEDING will take part in the Bloodletting North America Tour XII alongside Decrepit Birth, Arsis, Pyrexia, Angelmaker, and Within Destruction. Dates below.
