DEVOLVED's 'Calculated' Pushed Back To January

Australian/American tech-metallers DEVOLVED have had the release date of their new album, "Calculated", pushed back to January 2010 (via Unique Leader Records) from the previously announced August 25. According to the band, the date was changed "due to a joint distribution merger between Unique Leader and Prosthetic Records."

Commented the group in a statement: "It is unfortunate to have the release date pushed back, but having Unique Leader combining forces with Prosthetic is definitely going to be a huge plus for us in the long run. We will be making the most of the delay by using that time to enter the studio and record our next full-length album which is 100% written and ready to go. This way we will be able to follow up the 'Calculated' release with a brand new album later the same year. 2010 is definitely going to be killer for us!"

"Calculated" was mixed by famed producer/engineer Neil Kernon (CANNIBAL CORPSE, NILE, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE, JUDAS PRIEST) and was mastered by Alan Douches (SEPULTURA, UNEARTH, SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED, GOD FORBID). The album will contain a cover of METALLICA's "Battery", and is the first release to feature vocalist Kyle Zemanek.

"Calculated" track listing:

01. Fractured
02. Hybrid
03. Vex
04. Derivative
05. Synergy
06. Catatonic Ruin
07. Biotics
08. Impute
09. Assimilate
10. Icon
11. Depth Perception
12. Battery (METALLICA cover; bonus track)
13. Vex (Mass Confusion Remix) (bonus track)

DEVOLVED drummer John Sankey was a member of an early version of DIVINE HERESY and co-wrote some of the material on the band's "Bleed The Fifth" album before being forced to leave the project and go back to Australia due to visa issues.

DEVOLVED's latest album, "Technologies", was supposed to be made available in the U.S. last year via KillZone Records, but the release was apparently scrapped.

Originally from Australia, the band conquered its homeland in almost next to no time after forming in Queensland in 1997. Since DEVOLVED's first release, a four-track demo called "Truth", the band gained exposure and captured the imagination of fans in their home country that would take many top level bands years to work at.
