Southern California Hardcore band STRIFE has signed a recording deal with 6131 Records and will be releasing their forthcoming album, 'Witness A Rebirth' this fall.
Some bands leave such an impression on fans that, even after two decades, their sound still resonates deep and wide. STRIFE is one of them, and once again tapping into the energy that has kept listeners interested for 21 years.
After touring the world recently, they decided it was time to unleash a NEW batch of songs after 11 years of recording silence. The groundwork for what would become their newest album, 'Witness A Rebirth', has been laid and their collective efforts began down the road to realization.
With producer Nick Jett (Terror, Rotting Out, Backtrack) at the helm, STRIFE recruited friend and previous collaborator, Iggor Cavalera (founding member of Sepultura and current Cavalera Conspiracy) to perform drums for the album and traveled to Brazil to start the recording process with him. Soon after, they returned to California and put the rest of the pieces into place, including guest vocals by Billy Graziadei (Biohazard) and Scott Vogel (Terror), plus a guitar solo by Marc Rizzo (Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy). The rest serves as a testament to their talent, bridging their past (especially the contemporary Hardcore sound. 'Witness A Rebirth' is at once both refreshing and evocative.
