Following a highly successful tour supporting Skindred and the release of their EP ‘Hands Sewn Together’ – Lincolnshire, UK nu-metal band ANTI-CLONE have announced they are now back in the studio recording their debut album.
Working with acclaimed producer Matt Hyde (Slipknot ‘All Hope Is Gone’ Machine Head ‘The Blackening’) Anti-Clone’s next release is set to be a big evolution for the band.
“This debut album will be our first official footprint on the music industry. The EP was an early test, an experiment and we’ve learnt so much from the whole process. As soon as we started writing for the album earlier this year, we knew immediately we wanted Matt Hyde involved” said frontman Peter Moore.
“The step up in musicianship and song writing is immense” said Hyde “and as a producer you can’t ask for anymore than the band to be willing and open to trying new ideas. Anti-Clone pushes themselves and it’s no surprise that they have gained a lot of fans along the way. I can’t wait to have the record completed, there is no doubt in my mind that 2016 is going to be a big year for them.”
Big words to live up to? When you look at Matt Hyde’s work to date, which includes Slipknot, Machine Head, Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium, it’s a challenge but one Anti-Clone will relish.
And he’s not the only one to see the potential in Anti-Clone. Skindred frontman Benji Webbe praises the band for their live shows “Anti-Clone have the full package! After having them support Skindred for 2 weeks, I saw them deliver an amazing performance night after night. I believe with the right direction they could be a ruling force in British metal!”
Anti-Clone have also confirmed the mysterious Mister-Sam (Fear Factory, Powerman 5000, Rob Zombie) will be involved in the album artwork, amongst other new concepts for the band in 2016.
“Expect the unexpected” says Moore “This album WILL be the birth of Anti-Clone.”
The debut album is set for release in 2016 (date tbc) via Pledge Music and PHD (Plastic Head Distribution).
