Born Of Osiris Prepare For Tour With All That Remains
October 18, 2010
Born Of Osiris will take a break from the recording process to join All That Remains and labelmates Asking Alexandria for a North American run, which all kicks off for them on Oct. 19th. Either see below or visit www.myspace.com/boronofosiris to view their complete touring itinerary. Also, be sure to check out the MySpace page for their new webisode series providing an in-depth look into the current recording process.

Lee McKinney (guitars) states: "As for the new album, I should start by saying it's WAY heavier than anything the band ever released. There is definitely nothing we've done that's anywhere near this heavy. We have moved onto seven strings and it couldn't have complimented our sound any better. We brought back the 'BOO-bounce' on this one. It's definitely a really fun and upbeat album. We've also been writing this album for a long time. We had 16 to 18 songs going into the studio and we are going to be leaving with 12 songs that we feel are the strongest. We all live in a house together and that has really upped the creativity level. We go from on tour to living at home together, so we are all focusing on the band constantly. Also, the addition of our new guitar player Jason Richardson has increased the amount of shred on this album. There are some really incredible guitar solos on this album from the both of us. It takes the band to a whole new level of musicality. This album contains an awesome mix of our most heavy, most technical, most atmospheric and most beautiful melodies ever. No matter what album you've liked better of ours so far, this one tops both easily. We are producing this album at Bota Studio outside of Chicago, IL. Brandon Paddock (John Feldman's engineer) will be taking up mixing duties on this one.

"As for the tour, this will be the last time we are going to be playing so much of 'The New Reign' and 'A Higher Place'. Starting next year we are going to be playing as much of this new album as we can. We will definitely be playing a new song live on this tour. We just wish we would have had the chance to release it to everyone before we start playing it every night. Aside from us, All That Remains is a great band and label mates Asking Alexandria will be joining us on the tour, so come on out and hang with us. It's going to be a night to remember, we promise."

of Asking Alexandria had the following to say:
"We decided it was time to have some fucking fun and head out to do some smaller scale shows. We are purposefully trying to keep these shows 'up close and personal' so we can really connect with our fans and just go nuts with them. We are visiting towns that we rarely get to play and just hoping to have a blast. Hopefully everyone is ready to cause some fucking mayhem with us."
