Philm have signed a new deal with Metalville Records. The band’s new album, “Time Burner,” is tentatively scheduled to be released through the label in February 2021. That effort will be their first without drummer Dave Lombardo.
Gerry Nestler commented:
“We are very pleased to be joining the Metalville roster for the release of ‘Time Burner’. They are a solid company run by experienced industry veterans who know how to navigate in these challenging times and have everything in place to help us re-establish PHILM after being away for a time. We can’t wait for the fans to finally hear ‘Time Burner’, which we think is our best, most well-rounded record yet. You can expect PHILM Mk II to be as heavy and uncompromising as ever, but we’ve also pushed our musical boundaries and innate eclecticism to new horizons.”
With this news, the band have also announced that a new song titled “Spanish Flowers” is featured in a new animated short film of the same name. The video, which was directed by Ness Tomaselli and Fernando Yanes, is described as “a surreal, animated narrative involving a ritual of life and death carried out by two monks and a mourning priestess who is forced to let go of her mummified son.”
Philm have premiered a new song titled “The Seventh Sun,” via Revolver. This song is the first to feature new drummer Anderson Quintero, who took over for Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer). The band plan to release a new 10″ vinyl EP in early 2017.
