ANGELUS APATRIDA REVEALS ARTWORK FOR NEW ALBUM, "THE CALL"
Spanish thrash metallers ANGELUS APATRIDA are back with a new studio album entitled The Call, which is to be released on April 30th in Europe and digitally on May 8th in North America via Century Media Records. The same creative team that worked on the band's previous release, Clockwork, has teamed-up with them again for this new effort: it was once again recorded in Moita, Portugal at Ultrasound Studio with producer Daniel Cardoso (ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN, ANATHEMA, etc.) and the striking artwork was handled by Gustavo Sazes from Abstrata (ARCH ENEMY, KRISIUN, etc.).
In regards to the artwork, ANGELUS APATRIDA comments: "The cover presents the character of the creature that's gonna start the Armageddon. We wanted the beast to look majestic and powerful and we definitely think that Gustavo achieved that. We believe the cover fully represents the spirit of what you are going to listen...and you better be prepared, cause is coming to get you!"

It's been a busy time for ANGELUS APATRIDA ever since the release of their critically acclaimed Clockwork in 2010. After a support slot on the Spanish ARCH ENEMY tour in December 2009, this ambitious and voracious thrash metal quartet did about 80 shows in their native Spain (including slots at all relevant festivals like Sonisphere and En Vivo), as well as in Portugal where they toured as support to SLAYER/MEGADETH. Additionally, ANGELUS APATRIDA also toured Europe twice; first with SKELETONWITCH/WARBRINGER, then with DYING FETUS, KEEP OF KALESSIN, CARNIFEX, and FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE (as part of the "Bonecrusher Fest"), which helped expand the band's international visibility and showcase their high level of musicianship abroad as well.
