There is also guitarist Matthew Cuthbertson and drummer Bryan Newbury accompanying founder Tim Roth and bassist Troy Bleich. The next step for the group is the release of the new album Sirens this fall via Kolony Records.

Into Eternity - New Album On The Way

Canadian metallers Into Eternity have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

"A few days ago I checked my mail and was happy to find out Toy's Factory had sent me the Japanese releases of our last 2 releases: The Scattering Of Ashes and The Incurable Tragedy! It's nice to know that we have such great industry people and fans supporting us in Japan. I will never forget the great times we had in 2008 and 2009. Japan rules!

In other news, we have started rehearsals again and things are coming along. We have also started on "song 1". I have lots of music demoed at home now, so we are looking through it and starting our first new song. So far the song starts with an arpeggio instrumental and then heads into some heavy riffing.

Thanks for all the emails we have been getting wondering what is going on, well here it is. Thanks again to Japan for all the continued support!"

Into Eternity - New Video Available Online

Century Media press release

The wait is finally over as Canadian extreme progressive metal "icons" Into Eternity proudly present their new conceptual, visual masterpiece for "Time Immemorial". The track appears on the group's critically acclaimed concept album, "The Incurable Tragedy", which debuted at 17 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart upon its September release.

The video, which features vocalist Stu Block in a prominent role, was filmed in Montreal in August, just before the group embarked on the Summer Slaughter Canada tour. That trek was followed by a run alongside the legendary Iced Earth, which capped off a year that also saw the band tour with Symphony X, At The Gates and The Dillinger Escape Plan, among others.

Block (vocals) further comments: "It was really cool and, to be frank, kinda creepy doing some silent acting in the video. I've done some acting in high school and some extra work in Vancouver, so I was sorta familiar with what to do. So, hey Rob Zombie, I'm ready man; throw me in yer next slasher flick!

It was a long day for everyone - 14 hours, I think. I don't think we knew what to expect from the video because the focus was more on the acting sequences as opposed to band performance, which was kind of weird for us. Everyone involved with the video were really laid back and cool, and the other actors and actresses were really awesome and helped me out if I had any questions. (They are the pro's, after all!)

We filmed the video in Montreal at a haunted house that had been turned into a nightclub/restaurant, so it was a treat both for us to be filming a video in Canada and for me being a horror movie buff, as I was definitely in my element. I was hoping for a ghost sighting or for people to start disappearing periodically, but well, that never happened.

We were really pressed for time near the end of the shoot due to the fact we had to pick up our tour manager from the airport since we were going to start a new tour, but what a way to start a tour! I think all in all we are happy the video is finally finished, and we hope our fans enjoy it! Thanks to all our fans for picking up "The Incurable Tragedy", and we will see you all on the road in the future."

The video can be watched here.

Into Eternity - Guitarist To Sit Out N. American Tour

Official Century Media press release:

"Canadian extreme progressive metal quintet Into Eternity -- whose new album, "The Incurable Tragedy," debuted at 17 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart last week -- return to the road this weekend, when they kick off a string of dates alongside Iced Earth. However, the band's lead guitarist, Tim Roth, is unable to participate in the tour.

The group has issued the following statement to explain matters further: "All of us in the band, and especially Tim, have been looking forward to this tour with Iced Earth for months. Over the years, Iced Earth has been a huge influence on Into Eternity, as anyone who owns "Dead or Dreaming" Iced Earth t-shirt] knows.

Unfortunately, the events of the past two years have recently taken their toll on Tim. Emotionally, he's a rock, but there are some important legal, financial and family-related matters at home that he needs to take care of right now. However, he's given us his blessing to do the tour without him so we can honor our commitments to our fans (who won't get a refund if the support act cancels), and continue to promote an album that we all very much believe in.

Luckily, Sean Maier from our labelmates Blessed By A Broken Heart has agreed to fill in on super-short notice. From what we've seen and heard on his MySpace, Sean's an amazing shredder, and we can't thank him enough for stepping in. Meanwhile, Stu is going to do his best to handle all of Tim's vocal parts, as well as his own. The vocal harmonies won't be as rich, but Stu vows to do the best he can.

Please know and understand that Into Eternity's lineup is not changing, and that Tim will rejoin the group on tour as soon as humanly possible. Again, it's not that Tim doesn't want to do this tour; it's just that he can't right now. Over the last three years, Tim has led Into Eternity through 300+ shows with death metal bands, power metal bands, prog-metal bands, metalcore bands and everything in between. We'll miss him out there, but the show must go on.

Thanks again to all the fans around the world who picked up "The Incurable Tragedy." We weren't sure how people would respond to such an emotional roller coaster, but we couldn't be more grateful for our fans' continued support. We can't wait to see you all on tour."

Into Eternity - New Song Online

Canadian metallers Into Eternity have posted the a new track entitled "Time Immemorial" on their MySpace page. The track comes off the band's upcoming album "The Incurable Tragedy" cover].

In other news, the band recently shot a new video for the track "Time Immemorial" acclaimed director Craig Bernard (Theory Of A Deadman).

Comments bassist Troy Bleich:

"We ended up making it to Montreal just in time for our video shoot for 'Time Immemorial.' The location was awesome, as it was apparently a haunted house. Didn't see any ghosts, though. That would've been cool, as it might have filled in the 13 hours of time spent waiting for Stu's acting career to take flight! In all seriousness, it was a very cool experience and I think the video is going to be awesome. Thanks to the director Craig and the rest of the crew for making it a time that was truly...immemorial."

Into Eternity - Begin Work On Concept Album

Official Century Media press release:

Extreme progressive metal leaders Into Eternity have completed the touring cycle for their highly acclaimed album, "The Scattering of Ashes", and are currently hard at work on material for their much anticipated new recording, which guitarist/vocalist Tim Roth says will be the group's first conceptual album.

"The Scattering of Ashes" campaign saw the band embark on five North American tours with highlights including an appearance on Gigantour performing alongside Megadeth and Lamb Of God, but it was this past summer's tour alongside Dream Theater that really saw the band reach out to a new audience.

Roth states: "We are officially done touring for "The Scattering Of Ashes". We ended up doing 150 shows and being away for close to 200 days of the year! The whole band did a great job, as it's not always easy being away from home for so long, but I think it's important to do it the old-school way and tour as much as we can. No one can say we're a lazy band!

"Our last tour was with Edguy, Light This City and Echoes Of Eternity. It was a big success for us, so we want to thank those bands again. It was cool bonding with all the bands and 'bro-ing down' with them at 4:20. This touring cycle, we also got to tour with Megadeth, Lamb Of God, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Overkill, Sanctity, The Smash-Up, Destruction, Hirax, Municipal Waste, The Haunted, Dark Tranquillity, Scar Symmetry, Redemption and the mighty Dream Theater! We ended up doing five full U.S. tours on this cycle, and they all were special to us. Playing with Megadeth and Dream Theater each night was a real dream come true!

"Right now we are home in Canada awaiting the cold chill of winter. It is supposed to snow tomorrow, so I'll be in front of my warm computer composing new riffs for the next album. For the first time ever, we will be doing a concept album. Stu and I are working on the lyrics right now. It's always good to keep moving forward and to try new things, and this is something that we have always wanted to do. We have done two songs already, and it's turning out really cool. We'll keep you posted in the future as things start to progress further.

"Thanks to all our fans for supporting us, and we'll see you again in 2008!"
