THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE REVEAL ALBUM DETAILS “DEAD YEARS” AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 25, 2012
(NEW YORK, NY) – THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE have announced their brand new album “Dead Years” which will be released September 25, 2012. “‘Dead Years’ is full of some of the most painfully honest material we’ve ever written,“ says front man Ricky Armellino.
This will be the band’s first release since “Haunt What’s Left,” produced by Josh Wilbur and Lamb Of God‘s own Chris Adler in 2010.
Produced by Kevin Lankford and engineered by Andreas Magnusson, this is some of the band’s most aggressive material to date. Armellino continues, “The album features both some of the saddest, most melodic songs we’ve ever played and it also holds some of the angriest.”
When asked what fans can expect, Armellino concludes: “It’s about war and family, how we’re really never unaffected by the world around us, no matter how hard we try to get away from it. We’re very proud to finally get the opportunity to release it.”

Originally releasing their debut record “Monuments,” in 2007 the band has not slowed down since. With a few dozen tours under their belt with bands like We Came as Romans, Periphery and Born of Osiris the band is hardly new to the hands-on approach. Things like giving lessons while on tour and actively taking a role in their day to day is what sets THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE apart.
THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE is: Ricky Armellino (Vocals), Jack Esbenshade (Guitar), Matthew Marcellus (Bass/Vocals), Aaron Ovecka (Drums) and Rodney Phillips (Guitar/Vocals).
