||Pantheist are thrilled to announce that after several months of negotiations, the band has signed a contract with German label Grau Records to release their upcoming album as well as two additional optional albums.
The official press release reads as follows: "We have been following Grau for years and have always been impressed by the quality of their material, so we feel honoured to be part of their family now. We thank Tom for his trust and we are already in the process of mixing our fourth album with Greg Chandler at Priory Studios. We are fully confident that this upcoming album, that is bound to remain untitled to signify the new start in our history, contains the most powerful, emotive and heartfelt material we have produced so far and we are impatient to finish mixing and mastering in January for a projected spring 2011 release. You can find photographs of us recording in the studio, as well as some short clips, on our Facebook and MySpace pages.
In other news, we regret to inform you that after having been a core member of the band since 2004, Mark Bodossian (Esoteric) is leaving Pantheist to move to Norway. Mark joined the band during the recording sessions of Amartia and he also participated in the recordings of The Pains of Sleep, Journey Through Lands Unknown, Unveiling the Signs as well as our upcoming album which we are still in the process of mixing. Furthermore, he has played tens of gigs with us, as well as participating at a tour with Skepticism and Ophis in 2008. We wish him the best of luck with all his future endeavours.
We are currently rehearsing with Aleksej Obradovic (ex-De Profundis) on bass and are quite confident that he will be up to the difficult task of filling in Mark's shoes.
Finally, Pantheist are among the confirmed bands for a doom metal festival that will take place in Dordrecht (The Netherlands) on the 14th of May. More details will be made known about this soon. We will play several more gigs and are planning a small tour around the release of our next album (likely to take place in spring 2011) so any interested promoters, both in and outside the UK, please get in touch for bookings now."
