Melodic death metallers The Soulless are set to begin recording a new album on December 15, 2010. The British act, who recently changed their name from Ignominious Incarceration, will record their new album at Outhouse Studios in Reading, England. The album will be produced by John Mitchell (who has worked with the likes of Funeral for a Friend, Architects, and Enter Shikari) and recording will run though to January 2011. The new album, which will be a follow-up to the band's 2009 release, Of Winter Born, is slated for an April 2011 release via Earache Records.
The Soulless frontman Andy Wardale commented on the band's return to the studio, saying: We couldn't be more excited about going into the studio. We were supposed to be going in in September, but because of the accident it had to be put back. So we've been waiting a long time to get in there! We have used our time well, however, to really tweak all the tracks and we are very happy with the result. We are also looking forward to working with the guys at Outhouse as we think they can really deliver the sound we want for this album."
"Everything we do will be recorded and so expect in-depth video updates of the recording process, showing clips of new material. We will also be putting up a video before we enter, showing our writing process and talking more extensively about the new style of music. Keep checking the updates and be excited!"
A recently released pre-production track titled "Earthbound" can be streamed via the band's MySpace page.
