Prosthetic Records signs Withered

Official press release: Prosthetic Records is proud to announce Atlanta's Withered as the latest addition to the label's ranks. The band's forthcoming effort, "Folie Circulaire," is scheduled for a late-spring release and will be produced by Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness) through Prosthetic. "We're very excited to start this new chapter for Withered by joining the Prosthetic Records family," guitarist/vocalist Mike Thompson says. "We've put a lot of time and consideration into deciding which label we wanted to work with for our next album and Prosthetic have really proven their commitment to Withered's music and metal in general. It can be difficult to find a label that understands your band and has the resources to help cultivate your music without compromising it. This is a natural step for Withered and we are quite eager to contaminate and disgrace everything Prosthetic Records has to offer." The band's previous release, 2005's "Memento Mori," garnered critical acclaim and took Withered on the road with the likes of Mastodon, High On Fire, Dismember, Grave, Vital Remains, 1349, as well as new labelmates Skeletonwitch in the summer of 2007. A rough demo version of a song from "Folie Circulaire" is currently available on the band's MySpace page, along with several tracks from "Memento Mori."
