It’s been Four long years since Central California’s Etched In Stone unleashed their crushing debut full length, Emulate The Defiler, and immediately followed that up with an unanticipated lengthy hiatus. However, the last year has seen the band pushing to get things back in order, and they are finally ready to make their return with a brand new full length album entitled The Failure of Modern Man.
Despite the many setbacks the band has had from dealing with multiple line up shifts to only releasing the single “At the Altar of Lethe” via Nefarious Realm in April 2013, Etched In Stone have pushed on, refining their sound and recording the remaining tracks for their follow-up as time and finances allowed. The recording process was finally finished up in Spring 2014, with Jesse “Fioren” Quintero handling final mixing and mastering at The Ice Chamber Studios in Modesto, CA, and Etched in Stone are now set to release their sophomore album, The Failure of Modern Man, this June.
To give fans an idea of what they can expect from the new album, the band has partnered up with Ghost Cult Mag and are proud to premiere a track from The Failure of Modern Man entitled, “Only Silent, Still.”
Check out the track at this location.
Etched In Stone vocalist/producer Brian Lewis, had the following to say about the track and the new album: “When Jesse sent our final mixes back to us, it was completely surreal. “Only Silent, Still” is a great example of the overall sound of this record and representation of the evolution of our sound. Alongside this premiere, we’re stoked to officially launch the physical and digital album pre-orders as well, so this week is shaping up to be something excellent! We’re currently hard at work getting our live set organized and these past few months have been the most busy musically, that we’ve had in years!“
Pre-orders for The Failure of Modern Man are now available in both physical and digital formats at the following location. The Failure of Modern Man is officially set for release on June 24, 2014, and is the long-awaited follow-up to Etched In Stone‘s debut full length, Emulate The Defiler, which can be streamed in its entirety at this location.
