American thrash metallers Byzantine have announced that the band has reunited and is currently working on a new album to be released this year.

The band posted the following on their Facebook page: "West Virginia's Byzantine has decided to announce a reformation of the band almost 4 years to the day since their last album Oblivion Beckons was released."

Singer/songwriter Chris Ojeda states: "We've all kept in contact through the past few years and have worked on each other's projects as well. With our guitarist Tony moving back to WV from NC, we decided it would be a perfect opportunity to hang out again and jam. Before we knew it, we were tossing around riffs and song ideas and realized we had what seemed to be the foundation for a pretty kick ass Byzantine album."

"Since Byzantine is no longer tied to any record company, the band has decided to finance the recording of their 4th CD independently. The band will record most of the music themselves alongside engineer/producer and Gizmachi guitarist Jason Hannon of 7 over 8 Studios. Vocal tracking will be handled by Byzantine's longtime engineer Aaron Fisher at 101 Studios."

"In the meantime, Byzantine has decided to enlist the help of for the financing of the album. Kickstarter is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects. It will allow the fans of Byzantine to help back the release of their new album through donations. Donations will be set up on a tier program and each tier will have incentives packages such as signed CD's, back stage passes, official sheet music and early digital downloads, etc. Information on how to help Byzantine finance their new album can be found at this location."
