Fit For An Autopsy Announce New LP Plans

New Jersey metal act FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have announced an all new LP titled THE GREAT COLLAPSE due out this spring. “The Great Collapse is a reflection on the current chaotic state of mankind’s relationship with the world, and it’s effect both outward and inward,” says guitarist and producer Will Putney. “It’s a dark and unsettling record that encapsulates a variety of approaches to aggressive music, and a definite expansion of our capabilities as a band.”

The Great Collapse will be the the band’s fourth full length record, continuing the momentum gained from a solid 200+ days of worldwide touring backing the buzz-worthy release of Absolute Hope Absolute Hell in late 2015, as well The Depression Sessions, a split release with The Acacia Strain and Thy Art Is Murder in 2016. “It’s going to be the strongest record in our catalog. The overall mood and atmosphere of this album feels fully realized and emotionally stirring.” 

The Great Collapse is set to release on March 17, 2017 via Entertainment One (eOne) / Good Fight Music in North America and SPV overseas.

The crushing music of Fit For An Autopsy is for any fan of extreme metal, as it’s devoid of preachy politics or grandstanding soapboxing, but its sound and fury is absolutely unflinching in purpose. The band expertly blends excessive-force fueled death metal with atmospheric groove and impassioned personal diatribes, reflecting back the dark state of current events. Their fourth album, The Great Collapse, doesn’t waste time with fantasy bullshit or cliché gore horror. Fit For An Autopsy are metal guys, to be certain, but they grew up in the hardcore scene. They embrace the responsibility to put as much devoted purpose into their lyrics and message as they do into their dense, heady, songs, forging a magnificently powerful new post-deathcore.


Fit For An Autopsy Announce Dates With Aborted‏


Jersey Metalers FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have announced a new batch of co-headlining tour dates with ABORTED. Label-mates DARK SERMON are set to open the bill.

The band is putting the finishing touches on an all new, yet to be titled LP due out later this year. “The new album is a bit of a step in a new direction for the band,” says guitarist Pat Sheridan. “It feels really intense.”

The band set up camp at The Machine Shop in New Jersey with guitar player and renowned producer Will Putney at the helm. The new effort will be the anticipated follow-up to the critically acclaimed Hellbound, released in 2013. The biggest change since then has been the band’s vocalist. After the departure of Nate Johnson earlier last year, Greg Wilburn (Oblige) briefly filled in so the band could carry out their touring plans. Just before the band entered The Machine Shop, they brought in Joe Badolato (Diamond Cutter) as the brand new full-time vocalist.

“We found Joe at a perfect time,” says guitarist Will Putney. “We had just come off months of touring with a vocalist we knew wasn’t built to handle the lifestyle and stresses that come with being in a full-time band.” Badolato’s first show with the band was at The Brooklyn Asylum in Brooklyn, NY.

The band recently wrapped up a highly successful run supporting SUICIDE SILENCE alongside label-mates WITHIN THE RUINS. Putney concludes, “Joe is an extremely humble and down to earth dude and is a killer singer. Bringing him into Fit For An Autopsy has elevated the band to a really cool creative spot, and we’re excited about the future with him as our frontman.”
