FEN Announce Release Dates for New Album, Of Losing Interest

Following up on 2010’s breakout album, Trails Out of Gloom, Fen return to their heavier roots with the brand new album, Of Losing Interest! Once again recorded at Creativ Studios with longtime producer, Mike Southworth at the helm, the band have crafted themselves an album that perfectly balances the technical virtuosity of heavy metal with the more down to earth tones of the early 90’s alternative rock movement. Of Losing Interest will be available on August 14th through Nail Distribution in North America, Code 7 in the UK, and Clearspot International in Europe.

"In some ways, Of Losing Interest is a reversion to the bands pre-Trails sound, but this new album is a definite progression for us," states Fen frontman, Doug Harrison, "the new album is a lot heavier than past albums, but it still has a ton of melody and, as a band, we’re took a more focused approach towards songcraft."

Of Losing Interest will be exclusively premiered on The Heavy Planet website in August so that all can get a sneak peek of the album that’s already turning heads!

A Beatles double billed ‘on stage’ poster has sold for more money than most of us would pay to watch the Beatles play the double billed concert. Given all we know and love about the Fab Four, most of us would not be willing to drop 42 grand for a lunchtime concert ticket, let alone the poster that advertised it.

Decapitated "Organic Hallucinosis" Deluxe Gatefold LP - UK IMPORT

Please note that this item are UK imports and will be shipped directly from the UK!

One of the most important bands in modern death metal, Decapitated were immediately hailed as re-igniting a stagnant death metal scene upon the release of their debut! This release is part of the ‘First Time on Vinyl’ campaign, plugging the gaps in the Earache catalogue previously unavailable on wax.

Disgarding the traditional conventions of Death Metal, Decapitated take the genre to a new plateau of invention on 'Organic Hallucinosis'. Progressive in the truest sense, every element is designed to challenge the blueprint in terms of production, arrangement and delivery. Disregarding those who feel the genre is stale, Decapitated's singular vision has found its focus in the most adventurous of ways, leaving the band as the only credible flagbearers for the modern Death Metal movement.

This deluxe gatefold vinyl contains a fold-out poster booklet, featuring lyrics and a band photo.

The viny will be available in the following colors/numbers:

100 x Crumbling Rust - WEBSTORE EXCLUSIVE
