As already announced Front Line Assembly have completed the soundtrack for the "AirMech" video game. "It’s very hard electronics, and I have to say this really kicks it. It’s got 12 songs in total" says FLA mastermind Bill Leeb "Easily one of my favourite releases ever! Everyone worked so hard, and it’s really a labour of love. It was so cool seeing all these young guys really get into it.“
Carbon Games has signed Front Line Assembly to create an original album for AirMech. "For AirMech, the first thing I thought of was trying to get music that sounded like Front Line Assembly, so then I figured I should at least try and contact the band on the off chance they would be interested in talking with us," says James Green, Game Director at Carbon Games. "I was thrilled when the news came back that they would be interested in working on a game project again."
Front Line Assembly is one of the pioneering bands in the electronic industrial world and continues to be guided by founder Bill Leeb. The AirMech album has been under development since late 2011 in parallel with the progression of the game. Selections of the music will be deconstructed for use as dynamic music, which reacts to conditions during battle. The trademark structure of FLA's music made this collaboration an exciting opportunity for both teams. This album is entirely instrumental, and stands as a compelling FLA album on its own.
The album is to be released as limited edition in Europe on November 16 via Dependent.

Extensive pre-listining clips from the upcoming Dismantled EP release are online now. With more than 50 minutes the "Whole Wide World" EP features three versions of the title track, three versions of “Disease”, the new track “Deal” featuring vocals by Nero Bellum of Psyclon Nine, and much more.
On his last Dismantled album "The War Inside Me“ in 2011, Gary Zon explored genius, madness, and the ever so thin line that separates one from the other. The new EP sounds like Dismantled mastermind Gary Zon is feeling a bit more gracious these days. The signature blend of gloom and sarcasm is still evident, but the hatred and aggression that in large part characterized "The War Inside Me“ seems to have given way to somewhat more accessible structures. Also stylistically diverse remixers like Sleepless, God Module and Clicks! open new aspects and moods of the original tracks.
Here you will find the audio previews.
The small European Seabound tour was a great success. In addition to their greatest hits, the band also performed three songs from their upcoming album "Speak In Storms". A very small number of tour shirts are left and is now available in our shop.
