Betrayal Recording New Album With Producer Cameron Webb


Betrayal have entered Maple Studios in Orange County, CA to record their new album with producer Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Sum 41, Alkaline Trio), due this spring via Mediaskare Records.

The band endured lineup changes including the departure of vocalist Brendan Foley, who was forced to step aside due to a reoccurring medical condition that affected his vocal chords. Stepping in is longtime friend of the band Gage Armstrong, whose voice perfectly compliments the band’s new sound direction.

Armstrong commented:

“I think the lyrical content comes from me looking into my past and truly just being upset and angry.When we were putting together this album I was going through a lot of personal issues with my family and just life in general, so writing really helped me release and come to terms with all the hatred and angst that I had built up inside of me. It helped put things into perspective that my life is ok, and I’m going to be ok.”

To let fans in on the recording process, Betrayal is sending pictures and video clips using SnapChat. Fans can access these exclusive photos and clips by adding the band’s user name BTRYLBAND.

Betrayal is:

Sean Chamilian (guitar)
