WITHIN THE RUINS have debuted an all new music video for their recently released track, "Objective Reality". “'We're really proud of this video,” says guitarist Joe Cocchi. Directed by renowned director Justin Reich, this is the third and final track being released from the forthcoming LP. “Justin did a really good job and was terrific to work with, enjoy!”

"Objective Reality", "Beautiful Agony" and the previously released "Death Of The Rockstar" are now available on all major streaming services.

The band is currently out on the road in support of the new LP with friends in BORN OF OSIRIS on "The New Reign Tour".

WITHIN THE RUINS have released Halfway Human via Good Fight Music/Entertainment One (eOne) in North America and SPV overseas. The band recorded the new effort from their own studio with producer and guitar player Joe Cocchi at the helm. Vocal production took place at Zing studios in Westfield, MA with Jim Fogarty (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA).

Halfway Human was mixed and mastered by Joshua Wickman at Dreadcore productions. Album artwork and design was completed by Justin Kamerer.

"The writing process was a bit different for this album," says Cocchi. "We took a step back and kind of reviewed some of our older material. Typically we'd rush and blast out a group of songs and then hit the studio. At the time it felt right. And It had a more organic feel. Now because of a combination of maturity and honestly just feeling sick of the same old formula, we really focused on creating something different sounding."

Halfway Human is the band's followup to the Phenomena LP released in 2014 that had critics like METAL INJECTION call the album a "well refined album with more surprises than one would expect." Cocchi concludes, "We went back to a more organic style of writing and production. I personally was finally able to abandon a lot of my writing habits or 'rules,' if you will. No more 'oh, that part doesn't really sound like us, have to change that,' type of bullshit. Doing that created a fresher sound. This is the most raw and extreme sounding material we've ever written. Keep an eye out for studio blogs and more updates."

WITHIN THE RUINS maintain an emphasis on showmanship but with diversity, smartly sidestepping predictable structures and contrived breakdowns. Born and bred in the same heavy metal rich Northeast soil as New Wave Of American Heavy Metal progenitors KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, ALL THAT REMAINS, UNEARTH and SHADOWS FALL and weaned on the dark sounds of classic death metal, the technical melodicism of Scandinavia and the precision staccato crunch of MESHUGGAH, WITHIN THE RUINS have busted their collective ass to carve out a unique identity for themselves from those ingredients.

WITHIN THE RUINS are refreshingly authentic, feverishly committed and have proven that they will endure. Filled with power, deserving of utter respect, armed with concise compositions and technical might, WITHIN THE RUINS will not be stopped.
