It’s a new month and that means it’s time to announce our Band of the Month for May is Far West Battlefront. This Adelaide metal outfit have kicked off 2012 with a bang by releasing their debut album Chapters as well as managing to secure a number of huge international supports in the past year. With Roman Koester tracking the album before handing it over to metal lord Frederick Nordstrom to take care of the mixing and mastering duties, this has made for one very heavy album. The band is set to hit the road this month in support of the release so make sure you get out and see Far West Battlefront play when they are in your city!
Adelaide band Far West Battlefront will release their debut album, “Chapters” in stores on Friday 13th April 2012 through Skull & Bones Records and Shock Entertainment. The album was tracked in Melbourne at Complex Studios with The Red Shore mastermind Roman Koester, while mixing and mastering duties were completed by Gothenburg metal wizard Fredrik Nordström (I Killed The Prom Queen, Dimmu Borgir, Bring Me The Horizon, Confession).
Boasting an impressive support list including Between the Buried and Me, The Acacia Strain, For The Fallen Dreams, Escape The Fate, Pierce The Veil, The Contortionist, All Shall Perish and Haste The Day, May 2012 will see Far West Battlefront embark on an Australian national tour in support of the new release.
