This past Summer, Vision Of Disorder teased fans by streaming a new song called “The Enemy.” At the time, it was unclear as to how the reunited hardcore metal group would release their long awaited new album (and first in over a decade). However, today it’s been confirmed that Vision Of Disorder have signed Candlelight Records.
V.O.D. released the following statement confirming the news:
“Before the word ‘metalcore’ existed… Vision Of Disorder did. We did what we did because we loved it, not because we thought others might. 20 years later, we’re once again at work with the same approach. After a newly inked deal [with] Candlelight Records, we are about to begin tracking on our first studio album in a decade. We are bringing all the elements of what made us unique and ferocious to the table.
Playing reunion shows over the past few years and seeing such positive responses has truly been inspirational. This album is absolutely dedicated to our fans that have stuck by us through our ups and downs. Without them, it would not have been. We are excited to be a part of the Candlelight roster. They were a perfect choice for us. After numerous record label woes, it was refreshing to partner with people that are passionate about music — not just profit or agenda.”
This marks another big signing for Candlelight Records, who in the past few years have signed reactivated groups like Fear Factory and Corrosion Of Conformity. V.O.D. will enter the studio with Will Putney (Shadows Fall, Suicide Silence) to start recording the new album, which is expected to be released in late 2012.
