New England’s death metal mainstays, Dying Fetus are getting a serious lift from Relapse Records in 2011 with 4 deluxe reissues of the band’s classic material before releasing a brand new full-length this fall. After 20 years of “Pissing in the Mainstream”, Dying Fetus are no less of a force to be reckoned with. Known for a technical precision that comes with 20+ years of musical experience, Dying Fetus are also one of the only death metal bands to keep an ongoing political focus and commentary throughout their lyrics. Currently a three-piece; original guitarist John Gallagher is accompanied by longtime bassist Sean Beasley and drummer Trey Williams, who joined the band in 2007.
Dying Fetus kick-off a month-long headlining European tour tomorrow, leading the Bonecrusher Tour. Upon returning home, the band will finish up writing and recording for a brand new full-length with expected release in Fall 2011. Also keep an eye out for a covers EP to be released this spring.
