Just home from touring with Trivium and Chimaira and closing out an extremely busy and successful year, Tennessee’sWHITECHAPELare now set to head into the studio December 27th to January 31st with infamous metal producerJason Suecof(Trivium, All That Remains, The Black Dahlia Murder, Chimaira, DevilDriver and many more).WHITECHAPEL are set to record the follow up to the band’s crushing Metal Blade debut, This is Exile, at Jason’s Orlando, FL based Audiohammer Studios.Be sure to stay tuned to Whitechapel’s and Metal Blade’s sites as more information regarding guest vocalists, studio updates, and video updates will be posted throughout the band’s recording process.

Guitarist and founding member Alex Wade comments:
"We're really excited to announce that we will be hitting the studio in January with a producer who needs no introduction, Jason Suecof. Suecof has produced some of the most brutal metal albums to date and we are excited for him to get his hands on our new material to make it the heaviest music we've created thus far.

Also,Dusty Petersonhas been signed on to handle the artwork duties. His dark, yet meticulously detailed style of hand drawn artwork is sure to bring out a truly vivid and brutal masterpiece. We really wanted our artwork for the record to speak as loudly for us as the music we are creating, thus, Dusty was picked for his unbelievably realistic and detailed hand drawn style. In this day and age where downloading a CD is as easy as typing the cd's name into a search bar, we wanted to make the artwork something creative and special for the fans who actually purchase the CD. Almost like owning a piece of art.

As for the title and tracklisting, you'll just have to wait for that as the CD comes closer to completion."

This is Exile was unleashed on July 8th, 2008, and debuted at #118 on the Billboard top 200 charts, #2 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers, and #14 on Billboard’s Top Independent albums. An accomplishment that is impressive for veteran artists, much less a relatively brand new metal act._____________________________________________
