At this stage in the game, the name WHITECHAPEL commands respect. Already sitting on one of the most enviable catalogs in contemporary metal, in 2019 they dropped The Valley, showcasing a confident evolution in their sound and standing as a true landmark release that sets a new standard for the genre. “To me, it was like the stars aligning for us to create our almost perfect record in regard to songwriting, vocal performance, the mix and master, and the artwork,” said  guitarist Alex Wade. “We like to look at our albums as chapters of our career, and that is one chapter I will never forget. I think it really solidified that we can embrace a new sound, and if we execute it properly, then the fanbase is going to support and enjoy it.” In 2021, they returned with that album’s successor, the mighty Kin, which was an even more dynamic and diverse collection, further advancing the band’s sound into new territory without losing sight of what brought them to this point.

“I feel with every album, we learn what worked best on the last one and try to utilize that in our writing. Early in the writing, there was some discussion of the album being like The Valley Part II, not literally called that, but in how the songs sound and flow through it. It’s very much a storytelling type record like The Valley was,” added vocalist Phil Bozeman, “Musically, we just wanted to create what we vibe with at the given moment. We write music with how we feel and not what is expected of us, while lyrically the idea of continuing from the story of The Valley was always the goal.”

“For a generation of fans, WHITECHAPEL are the most legitimately brutal band of the deathcore movement.” – Kerrang!

“… one of the more unique metal bands still making music today.” – Metal Injection

“Phil Bozeman… commanded the stage and seemed to tower over the audience as he walked across the monitors…The band’s ability to combine powerful music with fun and energetic stage presence made for an unforgettable night of metal music.” — Pop Break

“Their performance… was superb and felt so nostalgic. As a Knoxville native, I have been a WHITECHAPEL fan for longer than I can remember and to see these guys evolve over the last fifteen  years has been incredible to witness. Their humble demeanor and professionalism shine on and off the stage.” – Keynote Music Collective
