The Contortionist Announce New LP

Groundbreaking heavy progressive rock band THE CONTORTIONIST will release an all new LP titled Language on September 16th, 2014 via eOne Music / Good Fight Music. The band spent time with producer Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME) at The Basement Recording Studio in Winston-Salem, NC. “Making this record from start to finish was quite an experience,” says guitarist Robby Baca. “From the initial attempts at song writing to the tracking sessions with Jamie, it’s an experience that I cant wait to share with everyone.” 

Language will be the third LP installment from the band and first with new vocalist Michael Lessard who offers, “I’m beyond happy to share this album with people! The experience and result are something I’m very proud to have been a part of. I think this album will show how we’ve all progressed as writers and players.”

The new effort will be the follow up to the highly publicized Intrinsic, which came out in 2012 highlighted by singles “Holomovement” and “Causality.”

Metal Injection called Intrinsic “one of the most exciting metal albums of the year.” Absolute Punk  claimed that  “Intrinsic puts The Contortionist at the top of the list for the future of prog-metal” and MetalSucks flat out called the band “one of the most exciting young prog-metal bands on the scene today.

Over the last few years THE CONTORTIONIST has accumulated quite a touring resume. The band was able to share the stage with acts like THE FACELESS, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, PROTEST THE HERO and DEFTONES. Stay tuned for more info surrounding this highly anticipated release in the coming months.
