Arkaea:  post “Locust” video online! Debut album out in July!
"Locust", the debut video from ARKAEA — the new band featuring Fear Factory members Christian Olde Wolbers (guitar) and Raymond Herrera (drums) — can now be watched at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt0NF9DQrV0

Commented Herrera:
"'Locust' was our first pick for a music video and as the opening track for the [upcoming ARKAEA] album because it really sets the tempo of the album and is a strong track that shows a great introduction to what ARKAEA is all about. We knew that we needed to come out swinging and 'Locust' definitely offers that punch."

ARKAEA will release its debut album, "Years In The Darkness", in Europe through Century Media Records (under license from E1 Music) on the following dates:

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Italy: Friday, July 17

Spain, Portugal: Tuesday, July 21

Sweden, Finland, Hungary: Wednesday, July 22

U.K., France, Greece, Denmark, Norway, Rest Of Europe: Monday, July 20

"Years In The Darkness" is scheduled for release in the U.S. on July 14 via E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records). The CD was produced by Christian Olde Wolbers and ARKAEA and mixed by legendary producer Terry Date, best known for his work with the Deftones, Slipknot, Pantera and others. The album was mastered at Sterling Sound by Ted Jensen, who mastered FEAR FACTORY's gold-certified 1998 release "Obsolete".

Also featuring one of metal's hungriest young singers, Jon Howard from Threat Signal as well as Threat Signal bassist Pat Kavanagh, ARKAEA are destined to unleash a whirlwind of modern metallic fury upon the masses!
