SO THIS IS SUFFERING Signs With Unique Leader Records; Fourth Album Currently In Production + Tour Confirmed


Victorville, California-based SO THIS IS SUFFERING has forged an alliance with Unique Leader Records for the release of the band’s impending fourth album which is currently in production. Additionally, the band has confirmed a headlining April US tour with Lord Of War.

SO THIS IS SUFFERING is a post-deathcore outfit formed by Zedadiah Martinez and Zechariah Gamez in 2007. After years of sacrifice, the band further developed by solidifying its lineup with longtime friends Robert Brown, Fabrizio Toscano, and James Williams. Having self-released three albums and relentlessly performing across the United States, they’ve made a name for themselves as one of the heaviest and hardest-working current DIY bands. By melding emotion driven lyrics with the sounds influenced by a broad spectrum of musical tastes, the members plan to leave their mark in extreme music.

SO THIS IS SUFFERING is currently writing their fourth full-length album, A Palace For The Pessimist, the band’s first release for Unique Leader Records. Issues the band of the signing, “We’re excited to be working with one of the top leading labels in extreme music. It’s been a long journey and we want to thank our fans for their endless support along the way, thank you!”
