Debut full-length set to drop July 9th on Solid State Records
May 28, 2013 – Just months after making waves with their blistering EP Lost Between Brilliance and Insanity, Williamsport, PA metallers MY HEART TO FEAR are set to release their debut full-length album, Algorithm, in stores and online July 9th via Solid State Records.
Algorithm builds off of the promise shown on Lost Between…, reinforcing to a wider audience what the band’s carefully cultivated fanbase had previously known – that MY HEART TO FEAR’s uncompromising metal attack couldn’t be kept a secret for long.
With Algorithm, the cat is out of the bag for good thanks in no small part to the band’s commitment to honing their sound and their resolve to approach songwriting their own way and not cater to what an audience is presumed to want.
The 11 track album was recorded at Atrium Audio with Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (AUGUST BURNS RED) and features notable guest appearances such as Ricky Armellino of THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE (eOne Entertainment).
For track listing and cover art:
“On Algorithm, the breakdowns are catchier, the vocals are better and are beyond appropriate for the music,” explains vocalist Trevor Pool. “No single part, instrument or effect is overused. There’s no filler. Everything is exactly where it needs to be. Nowhere was there something added just for the sake of adding something. Most importantly, we made the decision to write what we felt needed to be in the songs – nothing was written under the shadow of ‘what will please the most amount of ears.’”
While MY HEART TO FEAR remained focused on their own vision during the writing process, the band maintains a level of gratitude towards its fans that is rarely seen. That sincerity and honesty shines through in the band’s every move, and will continue to direct MY HEART TO FEAR’s actions in the future.
“Fans don’t get enough credit from bands,” explains Pool. “They are the reason a band can succeed. Since we released the first EP, we have had a surplus of people that have shown their incredible love and support for us and we hope to give back that same love with this record.”
