UNFD are extremely proud to announce their newest signing to the label, Japan’s Crossfaith for Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United Kingdom. The band will release their UNFD debut ‘Xeno‘ on September 18th! Pre-orders are available now at 24Hundred.
The band are no strangers to Australian shores, having played Soundwave Festival in 2013 and 2015, as well as a massive tour with Bring Me The Horizon and Of Mice and Men in 2013.
UNFD A&R Luke Logemann says of the signing “UNFD has been wanting to work with Crossfaith ever since we first heard them in 2011. This band is incredible and bring so much energy and creativity to the genre. We’re also amped to work with our good friends at Raw Power Management on this release.”
The upcoming album was produced by Josh Wilbur (Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb Of God, Hatebreed) and mastered by Ted Jensen. ‘Xeno‘ takes the groundwork laid by 2013’s ‘Apocolyze‘ and 2012’s ‘Zion‘ EP as well as the band’s vast touring history and catapults them into a whole new league. Frontman Kenta ‘Ken’ Koie, guitarist Kazuki Takemura, bassist Hiroki ‘Hiro’ Ikegawa, keyboardist Terufumi ‘Teru’ Tamano and drummer Tatsuya Amano are, quite simply, operating on a different level.
