Recent Unique Leader signees THE CONVALESCENCE will release their This Is Hell full-length via Unique Leader Records on September 1st. The ten-track offering was produced by John Burke (Forever In Terror, Captain Kid, etc.), at Vibe Studios, mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Despised Icon, Beyond Creation, etc.) at The Grid and comes wrapped in the macabre cover art of Coki Greenway.
In advance of its release, today the band is pleased to unveil the disturbing visual accompaniment to latest album single "Scum," viewable at THIS LOCATION.

In conjunction with the release of This Is Hell, the band will join The Blood Stained Earth North American tour featuring UK-based metal icons Venom Inc., New Orleans' blackened death thrash legion Goatwhore, and Portland punk thrashers Toxic Holocaust.

The band has remained mainly independent over the years with constant touring including tours with As Blood Runs Black, Rings Of Saturn, Cryptopsy, Disgorge, Soreption, Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Abiotic, and many more as well as joining Slayer, King Diamond, Killswitch Engage, Asking Alexandria, Hatebreed, Slipknot, Whitechapel, and many more on festivals including Mayhem Festival 2015, Dirtfest 2015 and 2016, Rock Fest 2016, and Texas Tattoo Music Festival 2016.
