After having released two successful albums on Nuclear Blast, we at Lifeforce Records are very proud and excited to announce the signing of Hackneyed to our roster, a band we are watching since their first steps and we can easily consider as one of the most fresh and promising Death Metal bands out there.
Hackneyed is currently in the studio working on the band's third album and Lifeforce Records debut, which is going to see its release at their Summer Breeze Festival appearance (August 18th - 20th).
Hackneyed is commenting its signing to Lifeforce Records with the following words: "The news about our new deal with Lifeforce Records reached us straight in the studio, where we currently record our third album. We are very psyched and happy about our new partnership with Lifeforce Records - a label with a great reputation, history and a very nice roster, we are proud to be part of now. We are very happy to be part of such great family now."
German metallers Hackneyed have issued the following statement on their MySpace blog:
"Hey folks, after a long time we have some news for you. Our long time fellow Alex isn't playing the bass at Hackneyed anymore. After several weeks of being torn between his new job and the band he took the decision to leave the band. It was a hard time for all of us but we all think that it was the only way of keeping Hackneyed alive and going. We are sad that Alex, one of the founding members, had to leave us. We all hope that, despite his new job we will still find the time to rock some parties together.
As Tini picture], a long time friend of the band, already played some shows as a temporary replacement for Alex she, after all, joined the band as a full member. We are very happy that with her we found a more than suitable replacement. We had a great time playing the first shows together and she really fits into the band. But see it for yourself at one of our next shows!"
German metallers Hackneyed have posted online a new song, "Deatholution", on their MySpace page.
"Deatholution" comes off the band's forthcoming album, entitled "Burn After Reaping", which will be released on August 14th via Nuclear Blast Records.

German death metal band Hackneyed announced the departure of their long-time friend and guitarist Felix "iX" Papp. A permanent replacement has just been found with Juan Sierra.
Quoted drummer Tim Cox: "iX's decision to leave the band was pretty unexpected and of course we pity it. Nevertheless, iX leaves as friend and we wish him all the best for his future musical as well as private endeavours. We are excited about having Juan with us now who's already contributing to the songwriting just after a few rehearsals! He's an outstanding guitarist and will add a lot to the band with his abilities!"
