War From A Harlots Mouth And Burning Skies To Release Split EP/ 2X7"

[Press Release]

We are very proud to announce a new edition in the history of sweet split releases between some of our most favorite bands. This time the opponents (in a positive way) are WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH and welsh power house BURNING SKIES! Their equally (bad) sense of humor make this one a definite candidate for one of the most talked about releases on Lifeforce this year ;-)

BURNING SKIES comments about the split:
"This is something we've been planning to do with WFAHM since we toured with them a couple of years back. As you may or may not know Ali from Heaven Shall Burn ghost writes and records most of the releases on Lifeforce records. This time however we thought it'd be an interesting idea to do the recordings ourselves and to write and record tracks for each other to really mix it up....however Stefan at Lifeforce heard the recordings and hated them so Ali stepped up to the task once again. I've heard from sources that the material's pretty ripping. I'll be looking forward to hearing our tracks once it goes on general release and i pick up my copy from Amazon."

"Burning Skies have been great friends for us since a few years now and we wanted to put out a split together. We asked ourselves: why not let them write our songs for an upcoming split? we all knew they were better musicians and cooler people anyways (native english speakers!), so why should we waste our time writing shitty songs, if they can do it better? i don't know how much ali has been involved, but as far as i know he had a huge influence on the material, so i wouldn't be surprised if it sounded a lot like heaven shall burn in the end. as much as i'm excited to finally hear the WFAHM songs...i'm afraid the songs we wrote for Burning Skies can't keep up with them, if - and only if - Ali didn't work his magic on them. We will see..."

The split release will be available as CD version, limited double 7" in gatefold cover (with download card) and digital version. The artwork will be handled by well respected artist Godmachine, who already worked for bands such as DEVIL WEARS PRADA, KYLESA, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, CALIBAN, CARNIFEX and loads more).
