The Convalescence To Record New Album With Producer Jason Suecof

The Convalescence will be hitting the studio next month to record their new album with producer Jason Suecof. Vocalist Keith Wampler commented:

“During the time off from touring we have completed writing for a new full-length album and will be recording next month with producer Jason Suecof at Audiohammer Studios in Florida. Jason has worked on so many albums we grew up listening to like The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium, Whitechapel, Carnifex, Bury Your Dead, DevilDriver, the list goes on forever. We are very happy with the new material and excited to work with Jason throughout the recording process. Although there is no set release date yet we hope to have the album out in late 2021 or early 2022.”
