Entheos Sign Worldwide Deal With Metal Blade Records

Entheos, the band featuring Navene Koperweis (ex-Animals As Leaders) and Chaney Crabb, have signed a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records. The duo’s new album will be released through the label in 2022.

The band commented:

“We are incredibly excited to announce that we have signed with Metal Blade Records. Metal Blade is a pillar in the metal community and consistently releases music from many of the world’s greatest bands. We are proud to be associated with such a label and look forward to our future working together.”

They also added the following about working as a duo:

“We respect each other greatly – not only as artists, but as people. Our relationship and the mutual passion that we have for Entheos has consistently been the backbone of this band. We share a vision that we are unwilling to compromise – in music, art, live shows and beyond.

Having been together romantically for ten years, we are very aware of how to play to each other’s strengths. In the creative process, we don’t just write for the sake of our own voice being heard, but what would complement both of our musical voices and vision.

We don’t want anything about this project to be an afterthought, so in the creative and planning stages, it is crucial for us to see it together as a whole and understand how we both fit in.”

“We took the pandemic as an opportunity to reimagine every aspect of the band and plan on re-emerging stronger and more focused than ever with a new release. With this record, we are pushing beyond the boundaries of what we believe this band is.

It is by far the heaviest and fastest record we’ve made, while simultaneously being the most dynamic and diverse showcase of genre-bending musicianship, melody and progressive themes. We are also more focused than ever on vocal performance, and Chaney will be incorporating pitched screaming and singing along with a more diverse metal vocal range.”

“Six years, two albums and many tours later, it is just the two of us, and we want to prove that the heart and soul of Entheos is not only far from gone, but that in this iteration, we can still deliver the best and most passionate release that we have created.”

Entheos Begin Recording New Album

Entheos have officially started the recording process for their new album. The band are working on the effort with producer Zack Ohren at Castle Ultimate.

Entheos commented:

“This week marks a new beginning for Entheos. We have begun recording drums for our third album with Zack Ohren at Castle Ultimate.

We spent the majority of 2020 writing the first record that will be released in our new incarnation, with Navene taking full reign of both guitar and drums.

We’re incredibly excited for this process to unfold, to hear these songs in full and to eventually share them with all of you. We will be sharing more details soon. Love and light.

Chaney & Navene“

Entheos Part Ways With Guitarist Travis LeVrier

Entheos have parted ways with guitarist Travis LeVrier. This news comes after the band released a new song titled “Remember You Are Dust“ last night (March 17).

Entheos commented:

“We are Entheos.

First, we should inform you that Travis is no longer a member of the band. We will always look back on the things we accomplished together fondly – we travelled the world and shared some of the best times of our lives together.

So many of these things would not have been possible without our mutual dedication to this project. That will not soon be forgotten. We thank him immensely for his time in the band and wish him the best moving forward.

After countless discussions and time spent thinking about the future of our Entheos, we have decided to move forward with Navene writing and recording drums, guitar and bass. He has been the main songwriter throughout the duration of the band, and we really feel that this is Entheos at its purest form.

You will find a brand new song, ‘Remember You Are Dust’ now streaming on YouTube and available for FREE download on Bandcamp. It will be available on all streaming platforms in the coming weeks.

As for live shows, we will be bringing both a live bassist and guitarist on tour with us and continuing on as a four-piece band.

We have poured our blood, sweat and tears into this project for the past five years and do not plan on stopping any time soon. Entheos forever.

Much love.
Navene & Chaney“

Entheos To Release New Music Independently This Year

It looks like Entheos are planning to release new music this year. The band confirmed the news on Facebook and also revealed that the new material will be released independently.

The group said the following:

“We are close to finished packing up one of our best merch days ever, online or off. As you may or may not know, we’ve decided to release all of the music we plan on putting out this year independently. No label, just us. The reason that we are able to do this is 100% because of the support that you all have shown our band. For that we are eternally grateful.

ALL money made at http://entheosofficial.bigcartel.com goes directly into the creation of our art. We’re often asked “how can we help you the most?” Purchasing from that store is how. Right now we are running a $10 sale on ALL OF OUR SHIRTS. Pick something up there. It will go directly toward new music.

Saying “thank you” is the least we can do – you guys really inspired us this weekend. Thank you guys SO much.

ENTHEOS”
