GENERAL LEE Unite With Play The Assassin Records

French post-hardcore unit, GENERAL LEE, have inked a worldwide deal with New Jersey-based Play The Assassin Records. The band’s new full-length, Raiders Of The Evil Eye, will be released on November 15,  2012.

Since their formation, the triple-guitar led GENERAL LEE have set out to create a tense musical climate; mixing heavy metallic riffing and icy, oppressive atmospheres with cathartic hardcore screaming. The band’s 2008 Hannibal Ad Portas debut is a culmination of early influences, namely Botch, Neurosis, The Chariot and assorted Belgian beers. A chaotic symphony of blackened intensity and bombastic euphoria, the record received critical praise from press and fans alike. GENERAL LEE would go on to share the road with the likes of Baroness, Helmet, This Will Destroy You, and Cult of Luna.

Roads followed in 2010 and showcased a more controlled and mature band. GENERAL LEE’s sound started to take a more individualistic shape that melded the genres of metal, hardcore and ethereal-like beauty. Roads was mastered by Tom Baker (Deftones, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Monster Magnet) at Precision Studios.

November of 2012 will see the birth of the band’s third full-length, Raiders Of The Evil Eye. With their first two releases primarily finding audiences in France, the band has signed with Play The Assassin Records and will be exposed to their largest audience yet. Raiders Of The Evil Eye finds the band teetering on the edge of a molecular meltdown; further blurring the lines of the posts-metal/hardcore. A seven-song thirty-three-minute explosion of extremes, Raiders Of The Evil Eye is chaotic yet controlled; extreme yet blissful. Raiders Of The Evil Eye will be presented in a limited edition, six-panel digipak.
