NEW YORK, NY | FEBRUARY 24, 2017: New York City deathcore quartet A Wake in Providenceare thrilled to announce their signing to Outerloop Records today, joining a roster that includes Lorna Shore, Youth in Revolt, Chasing Safety, and Megosh. Along with this announcement, the band has teamed up with Metal Injection to unveil the official lyric video for their latest track, “A Darkened Gospel.” The pulverizing track is a follow up to their most recent single, “The Imperfect: Iconoclast,” released in 2016. “A Darkened Gospel” was mixed, engineered, mastered by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland of Atrium Audio (August Burns Red, Lorna Shore, From Ashes To New). Guitarist D’Andre Tyre expanded on the track and its importance to the growth of the band:
“This song really encompasses the vibe that I’ve been trying to get across for some time, it’s been a real positive feeling to write and put out something I’m truly proud of. In addition to that, recording with the guys over at Atrium was a phenomenal experience, we had the choice to do live drums and being given the opportunity to record live drums with our new drummer Anthony Adipietro was such a great refresh. We have a huge connection to this song because the three of us went to the studio, the three of us worked together and tracked this single, and it is the three of us performing every stitch of it, and I personally couldn’t be more proud of the core we have.
Getting the opportunity to work with Outerloop Records is nothing short of amazing. We feel honored they wanted to work with us on this release, and we feel ‘A Darkened Gospel’ will get to our fans as well as new listeners the right way with their help!” – D’Andre Tyre
Formed in 2010 from unremarkable beginnings, A Wake In Providence diligently grew to become the renowned and otherworldly force they are today. Originally a heavier-than-your-average deathcore act, the band’s debut 2010 demo and 2012 debut EP Serpents saw them infusing a raw and ruthless take on traditional deathcore with contemporary metallic elements to make something sharp enough to cut its way through the thicket of bland, boring heavy music acts. While Serpents gained the band notoriety in their local area, it wasn’t until the release of their sophomore EP, Insidious, that the band went from prodigally talented to true rising stars in the heavy music community. Adding a liberal dose of downtempo deathcore to their instrumental stylings, Insidious earned the band global infamy and critical acclaim, as well as tours with some of the underground’s bigger names-including In Dying Arms (Tragic Hero Records), Extortionist and Lorna Shore (Outerloop Records), as well as several smaller solo runs along the East Coast.
Never ones to remain complacent, A Wake In Providence grew once more in 2016, releasing their most recent single “The Imperfect: Iconoclast,” which earned them even more acclaim, as well as a coveted position, voted Chugcore’s Best Deathcore Single of 2016. “The Imperfect: Iconoclast” was significant not only for the impact it had on A Wake In Providence’s notoriety, but also for its role in highlighting the addition of new vocalist Will Ramos, and even moreso the band’s drastic stylistic change, omitting their penchant for low, slow downtempo deathcore in favor of a renewed focus on more aggressive, fast and furious traditional deathcore elements with a razor-sharp technical twist. As 2016 transitioned into 2017, A Wake In Providence remain diligent-working with Mike Mowery of Outerloop Management to craft a demonically heavy and unbelievably oppressive full-length release that will not just shake the worldwide heavy music community, but suffocate it, drowning it in acrid, relentless heaviness that will inspire violence even among the most peaceful individuals. 2017 Also sees the temporary addition of guitarist Jordan Felion, adding even more heft and density to the band’s live performances than there was already-and now, the release of their latest single and sampling of the band’s destructive prowess, “A Darkened Gospel.” Make no mistake, when it comes to annihilation, A Wake In Providence do it better than the rest-ensuring that nothing will be left standing in their wake.
