Legendary New York hardcore heroes BIOHAZARD - in its original line up - have announced they will return with a brand new studio album in summer of 2010. Evan Seinfeld, Billy Graziadei, Danny Schuler and Bobby Hambel are set to enter a Los Angeles' Underground Sounds Studio on January 19th to commence working on the album. This will be the first time the four original members have recorded together since 1996's breakthrough State Of The World Address.
Bassist Evan Seinfeld states, "Biohazard and our four diverse, yet equal and integral parts converge upon our LA Underground Sound studio and resurrect our patented 'meat grinder' writing process. Each guy brings something - riffs, lyrics, concepts, songs, melodies, chants - and we get in a room and hammer it out. I have personally missed this process over the last years but having Bobby back in the band has brought back some extra fire that has helped remind all of us what the Brooklyn style is all about. The process is exhausting, humbling, magical and empowering all at the same time. One of the songs we wrote in our first 'round' of this battle, 'Vengeance Is Mine', we just played in all of Europe, London, and Moscow and went over so well live, that I am sure we are on the right track."
Biohazard has just finished a 22 month reunion world tour where the band played 100-plus shows on five continents. Starting with their self-titled 1990 debut, Biohazard released eight acclaimed studio albums which have sold over three million copies worldwide. During that time, the band was also featured prominently on two revered, Gold-certified compilations: Nativity In Black: A Tribute To BLACK SABBATH—they were represented with the album-opening cover of 'After Forever'—and the groundbreaking soundtrack to the film Judgment Night, for which they provided the title track (a collaboration with the rap group Onyx). Known for their incendiary live show, the band has performed over 3200 shows in their career.
The currently untitled album is set for release in summer of 2010. The world tour will commence in April 2010 and will last through late 2011.
