The time is now. Dynamic crossover killers BIRTH A.D. will enter Pyramid Sound on January 3rd to record the highly anticipated full-length follow up to their critically acclaimed Stillbirth of a Nation EP. Titled I Blame You, the album will be engineered and produced by Alex Perialas (SOD, Testament, Overkill, Carnivore, Nuclear Assault).
“We chose Alex not only because he presided over many releases that allowed Birth A.D. to exist,” explains vocalist/bassist Jeff Tandy, “but also he is still a commando producer of the highest order. He is very hands-on, and sometimes his enthusiasm exceeds our own. With his direction the new album will be amazing no matter what!” The album will be recorded, mixed and mastered in the space of 12 days. I Blame You will also feature a guest appearance by Rotting Christ front man Saki Tolis. “Sakis has already been a strong supporter of the band,” says Tandy. “The fact that he offered to appear on the new album is a huge honor. He knows his metal, so we couldn’t ask for a better endorsement.” BIRTH A.D. is currently seeking label support so they can cause problems worldwide!

About BIRTH A.D.
In the fearsome tradition of crossover thrash forged by acts like D.R.I., S.O.D., C.O.C, and a lot of other bands with three-letter acronyms comes BIRTH A.D.! The band formed in 2008 in Austin, Texas, as a side project of Candlelight Recording artists Averse Sefira.
BIRTH A.D.’s first offering was the self-produced EP, Stillbirth of a Nation, released in 2009. Their take on crossover’s head-on collision of punk, hardcore and speed metal comes with a up-to-date indictment of America and life in the new millennium. It’s angry, fast, catchy as hell, and it’s guaranteed to cause total chaos wherever it goes! The band’s inaugural outing was a successful eleven-date tour of Japan in October 2009. Since then they have appeared in support of numerous high-profile touring acts throughout the United States.
