Lock Up have some good and bad news to share. First of all, they announced an important line-up change. Their vocalist since 2002, Tomas "Tompa" Lindberg of At The Gates fame, has left the band due to "schedule/logistic issues". However, the band has recruited Kevin Sharp (Brutal Truth, Primate, Venomous Concept). The good news is that they will enter the studio in the coming months to record the follow-up album to Necropolis Transparent. The band is currently busy in writing mode and currently seeking a new label home and hope for an early summer release of the as yet untitled new album.
Grindcore supergroup Lock Up will undergo a brief European club tour in February of 2013 in support of their latest album Necropolis Transparent, released under Nuclear Blast Records. The tour, tentatively named Infiltrate And Destroy Europe 2013, will see them play a 10 date up-close-and-personal club tour which takes the band through such territories as U.K., France, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria and Belgium.
Necropolis Transparent, the new upcoming album from death-grind super group Lock Up, is now available for streaming in its entirety over at AOL Music.
The album was recorded in November-December 2010 at HVR Studios in Ipswich, United Kingdom and was mixed in January.
Necropolis Transparent was released in Europe on July 1st and will be released in North America tomorrow, July 12th, through Nuclear Blast Records. More album details were previously reported over here.
"'The Embodiment Of Paradox And Chaos", a brand new song from UK metallers Lock Up, is currently streaming on band's Facebook page.
"'The Embodiment Of Paradox And Chaos" comes off the band's forthcoming album, entitled Necropolis Transparent, which will be released on July 1st in Europe, and July 12th in North America via Nuclear Blast Records as a regular CD, black vinyl and transparent vinyl. More details about Necropolis Transparent were previously reported over here.
Necropolis Transparent, the new upcoming album of UK grinders Lock Up, will feature guest appearances from Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Pain) and Jeff Walker (Carcass, Brujeria). Necropolis Transparent will be released in Europe on July 1st and in North America on July 12th through Nuclear Blast Records.
Comments bassist Shane Embury: "I always wanted Peter on the third album since he was on the first record we did. It made sense from a weird trilogy aspect to get him on the record. His tones compliment Tomas perfectly as well. I would have loved to have had Peter sing on more of the songs, but time was short as Peter was heavily involved with his new Pain record. The songs he did sing on though made them extra special.
The Embodiment Of Paradox And Chaos is the title of third studio album by grindcore "supergroup" Lock Up. The new album, tentatively due this spring via a yet to be determined record label, was recorded at the end of the last year at HVR Studios in Ipswich, UK and is scheduled to be mixed later this month.
A new track, "Life Of Devastation", set to appear on an upcoming split seven-inch single with Misery Index, can be streamed at the band's MySpace.
