Exactly two years after the release of the critically acclaimed Quintessential Ephemera, US post-metallers Rosetta release a video detailing the release of their next record called Utopioid. Regardless of the fact that the band will only enter the studio at the beginning of next month, they already announce that their sixth full-length will be released in August, which forces them to record and produce an album in just one month’s time!
Recording will take place in the same studio where their fourth studio record The Anaesthete was made, and it seems that the band are looking at that first independently produced release for inspiration. Production and engineering will be handled by Francisco Botero who has also engineered The Anaesthete, and the album art will be created by Jordan Butcher from Studio Workhorse, who also created the cover for the aforementioned album.
Utopioid will be available as a digital download on Bandcamp somewhere in August, so make sure you follow the guys there or on any of their other social media-outlets. Given the exact timing of this video announcement it would be logical for Utopioid to be released on August 8, which would be exactly four years after the release of The Anaesthete but there is no way of saying for sure. From July 8 the band will start updating their website with a series of blog posts detailing the recording process and given the band’s infamous sense of humour they are granted to be hilarious as well as informative.
