Abiotic sign with The Artisan Era
Official press release: Recently re-emerged technical death metal outfit Abiotic is proud to announce their signing to the ever-expanding extreme metal label, The Artisan Era. Active since 2010, Abiotic sprang to life with an urgent sense of immediacy both live and studio recording-wise that soon saw them signed to Metal Blade Records after their 2011 independent EP, A Universal Plague, was released. The band toured relentlessly every year from then on while also dropping their 2012 debut album, Symbiosis, and their sophomore album, Casuistry, in 2015. After a few years of time spent regenerating Abiotic back to life into what has become their strongest line-up yet, the group powerfully returned with their February 2019 live tour alongside Cognitive, God Of Nothing, and Greylotus. This was quickly followed by the unleashing of a lethal new single entitled "Emerald" in March of 2019. Stay tuned for further news and updates regarding Abiotic's third full-length tentatively set for release via The Artisan Era in the summer of 2020. Abiotic comment on their signing with The Artisan Era: "We could not be more excited to join the ranks of the incredible roster on The Artisan Era to release our third album. We have worked hard over the last few years to put together an album that takes our sound to the next level and that also encompasses everything that got us to where we are. We believe TAE is the perfect label to showcase our vision for the next Abiotic record. Prepare yourselves, the wait will soon be over!"
