Ignominious Incarceration Changes Name To The Soulless
September 25, 2010
British death metal band Ignominious Incarceration is changing its name to The Soulless.

The band, which hails from Bath, England, has just finished writing its new album, the follow-up to 2009 debut, 'Of Winter Born'. The band has released the following statement regarding the name change:

"The band started in the pits of hell that was Sam's basement. We were just playing heavy music and having fun. When we decided on the name Ignominious Incarceration, we never anticipated the level we would get to. Had we known, I'm sure we would have chosen a simpler name. The band started to get gigs and we started to take the band way more seriously as we discovered how much fun we could have. We did our first tour with Trigger The Bloodshed and this was when we were first approached by Earache Records. This was a real turning point for the band and we realised we could make something of it. We debated changing the name whilst recording 'Of Winter Born', but chose to stick with it. We don't regret doing this as it is what represented the band at the time.

"Over the last couple of years since 'Of Winter Born', we have matured as people as well as a band. When we came to write the second album, we decided we wanted to do something different from the last one. Not a huge alteration in style, but more a progression of what we enjoy most and feel we can write the best. This then led to the discussion of our name. Obviously the name is very long and hard to pronounce. As a band, you're trying to promote yourselves and get your music to the people. We wanted a new name which was easy to remember and say, and to get ourselves out there. With the change in music, we thought it was a perfect opportunity to change our name as well. This almost 're-launching' of the band has given us new life and we are so motivated towards the new project.

"As for the name-choosing itself, this was no easy task! As we were changing the name, we had to be 100% happy with it this time. We found it really hard to find a name bang-on-the-money. In the end, we wrote down thousands of names and set ourselves a deadline to pick the best one. We all liked 'The Soulless', which was in fact a working title for a new song. We feel the name has a dark, edgy feel to it, but is not instantly recognisable as metal and it's easy to say! We feel this represents us a lot better, as well as our new music.

"We have a lot of plans for The Soulless; the new album is written and we will be going into the studio very soon. Everything we do in the next few months will be filmed so we can keep you updated. We did a pre-production demo track, which we are going to put online soon to show you a glimpse of the new material we have been talking about. When we finish in the studio, we will be recording our first official video. We are really excited to get back on the road again as the newly evolved band, The Soulless."

Drummer Sam Bailey comments: "The Red Chord dates are gonna be a lotta fun, we played with them a couple years ago when we were starting out and to this date it was one of the most fun shows we've ever played. Last time the venue we played was in Yeovil and everyone went down a massive ski slope next to the venue in rubber rings. So there ya go. We're gonna be filming everything, drinking a lot more than likely, so come say "what's up", buy some merch and the album, and party!"

Bassist Chris Ball adds: "We're really pumped after how great the show was we did with them back in 2007, the crowd were amazing and so were The Red Chord. These are the sort of shows we've been needing after the release of our album! We're gonna play hard and party just as hard! The Red Chord have had some influence on our music and it will be amazing to share the stage again. Everybody come to the shows and bang your heads and show them how the UK like to party!"

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2006
HOME TOWN: Bath, UK
MEMBERS:
Andy Wardle – Microphone
Steve Brown – Guitar
Sam Bailey – Drums
Chris Ball – Bass
Danny Guy - Guitar

Having only formed in 2006, Ignominious Incarceration are one fast-moving band.  Only six weeks after forming in a small town called Wellington in the UK, the band played their first gig to a humble audience of around 20 people.  By the time the band played their third show, they had replaced Abigail Williams on a tour slot as the main support act for Bring Me The Horizon and were playing to over 400 people.

Since those early shows, Ignominious Incarceration have been moving at light-speed, both musically and in their progression as a band.  Quickly being tipped as one of the best new British death metal bands, they have toured with the likes of Trigger the Bloodshed and Bleed From Within, and have an unreleased 6-track EP under their belts.

In May 2008, only two years after forming, Ignominious Incarceration's hard-working ethic paid off as the band signed a worldwide record deal with extreme metal label, Earache Records.  Currently working on their debut album, the band are set to enter Grindstone Studios in Suffolk in September 2008 with producer Scott Atkins (Sylosis, Gama Bomb) for an early 2009 release, with touring scheduled for October 2008.
