Whitechapel has announced a new live album, Live In The Valley, which will be released digitally on January 26, 2024 across all digital platforms. The album contains songs from the albums “Kin” and “The Valley” and was recorded live at the band‘s 7th annual Christmas Benefit Show on December 22, 2022 at The Mill & Mine in their hometown of Knoxville, TN.

Here‘s what guitarist Alex Wade had to say about Live In The Valley:
“We decided to record the audio from our 7th annual hometown Christmas benefit show in 2022 where we played a mixed set from our albums ’The Valley‘ and ’Kin‘. We thought this would be a good way to close the chapter on these albums before we start recording our 9th album. The audio was recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered by our very own Zach Householder and we are excited about the way that it turned out. Along with the audio we shot 2 live videos to accompany the live album release.”

About the band:
At this stage in the game, the name Whitechapel commands respect. Already sitting on one of the most enviable catalogs in contemporary metal, in 2019 they dropped The Valley, showcasing a confident evolution in their sound and standing as a true landmark release that sets a new standard for the genre. “To me, it was like the stars aligning for us to create our almost perfect record in regard to songwriting, vocal performance, the mix and master, and the artwork,” says guitarist Alex Wade. “We like to look at our albums as chapters of our career, and that is one chapter I will never forget. I think it really solidified that we can embrace a new sound, and if we execute it properly, then the fanbase is going to support and enjoy it.” In 2021, they return with that album’s successor, the mighty Kin, which is an even more dynamic and diverse collection, further advancing the band’s sound into new territory without losing sight of what brought them to this point. “I feel with every album, we learn what worked best on the last one and try to utilize that in our writing. Early in the writing, there was some discussion of the album being like ‘The Valley’ part II, not literally called that, but in how the songs sound and flow through it. It’s very much a storytelling type record like ‘The Valley’ was,” adds vocalist Phil Bozeman, “Musically, we just want to create what we vibe with at the given moment. We write music with how we feel and not what is expected of us, while lyrically the idea of continuing from the story of ‘The Valley’ was always the goal.”“For a generation of fans, Whitechapel are the most legitimately brutal band of the deathcore movement” – Kerrang!

“Their music attacks from the first track, and they draw you in, commanding your attention with their performance and presence. This is how I‘ve always felt about Whitechapel” – Metal Nation

“Whitechapel has certainly become, in my opinion, one of the more unique metal bands still making music today” – Metal Injection
