Fatal Smile Releasing ’21st Century Freaks’ On April 27th
February 1, 2012
Fatal Smile, Sweden’s self-proclaimed ‘hardest working band’ is back and ready to release ’21st Century Freaks’ on April 27th.
After 350 shows worldwide during their “World Domination Tour”, touring with bands like Dio, W.A.S.P., Queensryche, Doro and Lordi, to follow up the recent success of their album ‘World Domination’ (mixed by legendary Michael Wagener — famous for his work with bands like Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, and Motley Crue) Fatal Smile spent over a year writing and recording songs for what they knew was the album to become their legacy.
The album, the band’s fourth release, was recorded in the tour buses, hotel rooms and studios all over the world before finally eleven songs were singled out and re-recorded during 2011.
Ten top names tried out for the mixing job, all mixing the song planned as the second single of the album. The band put together a jury of friends to pick out their favorite mix, which turned out to be mix no. 5, not knowing it was mixed by drummer Philty and guitarist MR.Y.
After a year of blood, sweat and beer’s it’s finally time for their brand new album ’21st Century Freaks’ to see the light of day. This time the band have done everything on their own to make it the ultimate Fatal Smile album, from recording and engineering to producing and mixing the album and the result is massive, with “in your face” songs and a “larger than life” sound.
The album was produced by MR.Y, engineered/recorded by Philty, and mixed by the pair together. The mastering duties were handled by Mats “Limpan” Lindfors at Cutting Room Studios.
The first single “Welcome To The Freakshow” will be released in March and the album will be released in Europe on April 27 via Metallville Records.
The release will be followed by a massive world tour, and you can expect to see Fatal Smile’s intense live show blasting in a venue near you during this year…
