News: Crusades detail new album ‘This is a Sickness and Sickness Will End,’ announce European tour

Ottowa’s Crusades will release their forthcoming album This is a Sickness and Sickness Will End on March 7th jointly through Anxious & Angry (USA) and Countless Altars (Canada/Europe). Countless Altars is Dave Williams of Crusades’ newly launched label. Crusades will also embark on a European tour this spring in support of the release.

CRUSADES’ upcoming LP, titled This is a Sickness and Sickness Will End, was recorded in Spring 2016 by Mike Bond at Wolf Lake Studios in Lac-Des-Loups, QC, with additional recording by the band’s own Jordan Bell at Atomic Audio in Ottawa. It was mixed by Matt Bayles (who has worked with a veritable who’s-who of heavier punk/hardcore: Tragedy, Mastodon, Botch, Murder City Devils, Isis, From Ashes Rise, and many other notable artists including Pearl Jam, Deftones, Alice In Chains, etc.) at his own Red Room Recording in Seattle, WA and mastered by Martin Bowitz (of anarcho-hardcore luminaries The Spectacle and brilliant indie-pop outfit Cold Mailman) at Strype Audio in Oslo, Norway.
