-16- finishes recording new album
Official press release: Los Angeles, CA misanthropic sludge-rockers -16- have completed recording their highly anticipated new album, set to be released this Spring via Relapse Records. The new record, entitled Deep Cuts from Dark Clouds was recorded with the band's friend and longtime engineer Jeff Forrest at Double Time Studios in San Diego, CA. The album was then mastered by Pig Destroyer's Scott Hull at Visceral Sound Studios. The official tracklist, release date and artwork for Deep Cuts from Dark Clouds will be released shortly. Bassist Tony Baumeister commented on the new album: "We're very excited about the release of our new record. The addition of Mateo on drums opened a lot of doors for us creatively. We experimented with different time signatures, different tunings, and finally made the album we've wanted to make all along. The goal was to destroy our last record, and we feel like we achieved that. We can't wait for people to hear it, and can't wait to play these songs live. US and European touring plans are in the works..."
