THROWDOWN Completes Recording New Album

Orange County, California's hardcore/metal act THROWDOWN has finished recording its new album, "Deathless", for a late 2009 release via E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records).

Commented THROWDOWN frontman Dave Peters: "OK, we've got some rough 'Deathless' tracks in our hands and I'm sorry that I can't play them for you yet 'cuz, holy SHIT, am I stoked on these songs! If you follow us on Twitter, you probably read that shameless self-promotion isn't really my strong point, but I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of this album and it isn't even MIXED yet. At the risk of sounding parental, I can't begin to express how proud I am of [guitarist] Mark [Choiniere] for the songs he wrote for 'Deathless'. Mind-blowing how some of them came together when all was said and done.

"Thanks to the insanely flattering initial review from our close friends that we've played these songs for including Mental, Kirk and our friends in DEMON HUNTER / Invisible Creature Studios. Seriously left me speechless! Can't wait for Ryan [Clark of Invisible Creature and DEMON HUNTER] to start working on this album art...wouldn't be a THROWDOWN record without him packaging it! If things come together for the concept we've been talking about, you guys are in for something special. Don't wanna jinx anything, though!!"

"Deathless" will be the band's fourth album with Peters as frontman and primary songwriter, its second with Choiniere (who joined the band in 2005) and first with bassist Mark Mitchell. Drummer Jarrod Alexander (ex-DEATH BY STEREO), who performed on the band's breakthrough "Haymaker" album in 2003, returned to work on "Deathless".

THROWDOWN last year completed touring behind the band's last album, "Venom & Tears", which was produced by the group with Mudrock (AVENGED SEVENFOLD, CHIMAIRA). The past two years saw them on the road with KORN (Australia), KILLSWITCH ENGAGE (Canada), CAVALERA CONSPIRACY (U.S.), MACHINE HEAD / ARCH ENEMY (U.S.), headlining the Ernie Ball stage on the Vans Warped Tour, hitting major European festivals like Download, and headlining a U.S. tour of their own.
