New Jersey/New York’s ILL NIÑO iannounce the release of their VICTORY RECORDS debut, Dead New World, on October 26th, 2010. The album is self produced with co-production coming from Clint Lowery (Sevendust) and Sahaj Ticotin (RA) and mixed by Eddie Wohl (36 Crazyfists, Anthrax, Smile Empty Soul).Dead New World also serves as the follow up to the band’s critically-acclaimed 2008 release, Enigma.
See above for the newly released album art, illustrated by Tim Butler of XIII Designs (Disturbed, Slipknot, Metallica, Slayer, Michael Jackson). “It was our pleasure to work with Tim Butler, who designed ILL NIÑO’s Dead New World CD cover,” states drummer Dave Chavarri. “We wanted to have a tribal ethnic looking cover, and Tim's recreation design of a picture of three South American shrunken heads was everything we wanted. The Dead New World cover definitely touches on our ethnic roots and history.”
To date, ILL NIÑO has sold more than 500,000 albums in the United States alone, and over 1 Million albums worldwide. The band plans to embark on a full United States tour this fall, and will head into Asia and South America by the end of 2010.
