NEW YORK—The original line up influential hardcore punk metal bands Biohazard is gearing up to release their first album together in sixteen years. The band features one of porn’s most energetic performer-director-entrepreneurs, Evan Seinfeld. The as-yet untitled album will be released in Spring 2011 via a new partnership with Nuclear Blast, for the world outside of North America.
“We at Nuclear Blast have been longtime fans since we first saw Biohazard on tour with Wargasm and at the legendary Dynamo Open Air where they played no less than four times,” said A&R’s Jaap Wagemaker. “Judging by the sheer power, enthusiasm and pleasure that I have seen them unleash live by playing their classics, the new album promises nothing less than another milestone in their career.”
Formed in the late eighties in Brooklyn, New York, the foursome achieved national and worldwide success with their albums Urban Discipline on Roadrunner Records in 1992, and 1994’s State of the World Address on Warner Brothers. Both albums sold over 1,000,000 copies each. Founding members Billy Graziadei, Bobby Hambel, Danny Schuler and Evan Seinfeld are currently in the studio with legendary producer Toby Wright (Alice in Chains, Metallica, Korn).
"Finally, we are in the studio recording our first record together with the original line-up since 1994. 16 years! Feels like a lifetime since we last did this together, and the experience has been amazing,” said Drummer Danny Schuler. “We've recorded over an hour of music, and we are extremely excited and grateful to be able to share it all with you.”
Bassist Seinfeld said the new album promises “bone crushing riffs fused with dark melodies and uncompromising lyrics rapped at you like only Biohazard can deliver… the danger is back.”
“This is the best hardcore band in the world, and this is going to be a kickass record that proves that is a fact,” added Toby Wright.
Biohazard will be closing out the year with Life of Agony at a show in their hometown, New York City.
The world tour starts in March 2011 with a headlining appearance at Hammerfest 2011.
