Hyderabad Metallers- HOSTILIAN sign with Proximity Productions PR

Hyderabad based Metal band- Hostilian are now gearing up for their forthcoming release and are collaborating with Proximity Productions PR. The band’s drummer  comments that the band has been working on this release for quite some time and that it is by far one of their most challenging process, “With reference to the previous EP, we think it was an exercise on figuring out how all our influences and preferred style of music could fit in with each other. At this present moment, we’ve understood what we want and are more focused than ever. This focus has manifested itself in the new EP in heavier and more powerful ways. The writing has gone beyond anything we hoped for and it seems that we have discovered a plain that is untouched in terms of originality. We were never writers who wanted to stick to the beaten path, that has an established fan base that could be marketed to easily. The point is to write truly original, gnarly and groovy music. We feel we’ve accomplished that in these new tracks”.

On their new coalition with Proximity Productions, he states, “Getting the word out on who we are and what we’ve been trying to do was always the hardest part. Now, it feels good to have partnered with Proximity Productions and to know that it’s the best possible way to get our music heard. We’re looking forward to what the future holds for both, the company and us as a band. It’s been an easy decision to place our trust in the hands of someone who understands the music”. We are really excited to be a part of their journey and to work with hard working musicians like them who are dedicated to their art and to have come up with their a second release post Monolith (Sep 2017) in such a short duration. Watch out for some exciting announcements, the album artworks and title reveal to be done in a couple of weeks.

GUTTED AT BIRTH- GUTSLIT x STILLBIRTH- Asia Tour | 2018

GUTTED AT BIRTH can easily be passed on as one of the most ambitious tours to have ever been produced in this part of the world featuring Brutal Death Metal icons- STILLBIRTH (Germany) and GUTSLIT (India) spanning close to three weeks across 10+ countries. 

Gutslit bassist, Gurdip talks about the tour, states, “The distance, flights, how not to waste days traveling and finding the right promoters and cities for the right days of the week. It’s not a joke to just book a show a day in ten different countries and not be worries about everything from flight delays to immigration issues. We are pushing our bodies to a limit where sleep is a luxury we won’t be able to afford. Forget the flights. Which we still can’t afford“. The bassist goes on to add about the tour and the hurdles faced during the process, “This final route is the 11th route that we locked in. So many changes. So many route alternatives. It was mentally and geographically challenging to make it on time in every city. Hopefully should happen while on tour too“. 

Stillbirth’s Lukas says, “The biggest challenge was to find a route through Asia because most of the promoters wanted a weekend. Also, the booking of all flights and visas for this mammoth project. I still don’t know how we will manage it, to fly every day and be in time at the airport, haha“. He goes on to add about the response so far, We get a lot of responses from fans of all countries we play in. We are highly looking forward to meet all these people and party with them. Can’t wait to hit the road (or the sky) and get this thing rolling.” 

The tour is set to commence in Dubai on September 21st and close on October 7th in Bangkok (Thailand).
