Long Island metalcore act Stray From the Path announced completing the recording of their sixth studio album. The yet-to-be-titled album is expected to be released sometime this year via Sumerian records. Our guess is we will hear more after they wrap up touring with Architects sometime next month. The full-length album is a follow up to their 2015 release Subliminal Criminals. The band recorded with Will Putney again, who also produced, mixed and mastered the album at Graphic Nature Audio in Belleville New Jersey with additional vocal production from Jesse Barnett of Stick To Your Guns.
Vocalist Drew York commented:
“Having our new drummer Craig Reynolds in the studio made for a different experience going into it, but Craig is an absolute maniac and he smashed it!! We also pushed ourselves harder than we ever have before working 12, sometimes 16 hours a day; there was a couple of times I thought I was losing my mind haha.
Going back to Will Putney was an obvious choice for us because he is a genius and plays a huge part in the aesthetic of this band. We also had our good friend Jesse Barnett do some vocal production and it was great having him there, shooting ideas around, and getting involved with everything.
To wrap it up, if I could describe the record in a few words I would say that it is the heaviest, most pissed off, and relentless record this band has ever made. And that makes me very happy.“
