Xibalba Reveals Album Cover Art, Tracklist
"Xibalba’s debut LP Madre Mia Gracias Por Los Dias — released in 2011 via LP by A389 Records and later on CD by Southern Lord — combined with a relentless touring schedule for the past two years, have earned Xibalba the utmost respect from hardcore and metal fans worldwide. After officially signing with Southern Lord late last year, the time for the band’s first official release for the label to be unleashed grows near.
"Taking their down-tuned assault to iniquitous new dimensions, Xibalba’s ravenous breakdowns hit with the force of tsunamis and their riffs like mires of quicksand on Hasta La Muerte, showcasing more than ever how well the unit delivers such low-end savagery while remaining resilient, undeviating from their course of destruction. The album now confirmed for North American release on August 14th, the band recorded with Taylor Young (Nails), and outsourced the album’s powerful cover art concept to renowned death metal artist Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.)."

Asia To Release New Album
ASIA, featuring the original line-up of Geoff Downes (keyboards), Steve Howe (guitar), Carl Palmer (drums) and John Wetton (lead vocals and bass) celebrate their 30th anniversary (1982-2012) by
releasing their new album 'XXX' on July 2nd. Featuring artwork by Roger Dean, 'XXX' dovetails ASIA’s 30th Anniversary World Tour and the collectors box set edition of their eponymous debut album.
Their current single "Face On The Bridge," now in its sixth straight week on the A-list at Planet Rock; the UK’s premiere classic rock radio station, is also proving hugely popular on YouTube.
In 1982 their debut album topped The Billboard Top 100 Chart for nine weeks, and went on to become the biggest selling album of the year. The album spawned the hits "Heat Of The Moment," "Only Time Will Tell," and four other radio hits. The new album,' XXX,' produced by Mike Paxman, has been hailed ASIA’s best album since their classic early 80s releases. 'XXX' is released by Frontiers Records on Monday July 2nd on CD, special edition CD/DVD (featuring music videos, behind the scenes footage), and limited edition vinyl.
“We wanted to recapture the energy of the first album,” says ASIA’s guitarist, Steve Howe. “ASIA has always been about great songs, fantastic musicianship. Fans of the first album will fall in love with XXX.”
