Rhode Island's THY WILL BE DONE recently completed work on a brand new EP that is slated for release later this summer. The band, renowned for their DIY approach, engineered the EP themselves and teamed up once again with acclaimed metal producer Zeuss to mix their six brand new studio tracks. With influences and roots that harkens the listener back to metal's glory days, and songs and arrangements that echo the voice of the oppressed and broken, the end result is a release that brings hope and far surpasses its predecessors, and in all aspects possesses the capabilities of cementing THY WILL BE DONE's position in the metal world. More details, including title and release date will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Check out a video preview for the EP HERE.
The first single from the EP "You, The Apathy Divine" is available for purchase on iTunes. A direct link to purchase the single is located HERE.
Frontman J. Costa commented on the iTunes release of the first single from their forthcoming EP:
"With the overwhelmingly warm reception we received at Orion Fest and with the new single that was unveiled last week, it just seemed like it was the most natural thing to do. We were meeting some existing fans as well as new fans at Orion Fest who were asking when they could actually own some new music; it just made sense."

THY WILL BE DONE are headed to Japan for a co-headlining tour with Japanese crossover legends The Aggressive Dogs. The tour will kick off on June 29th in Kasihwa and runs through July 8th in Nagoya. A list of confirmed dates can be found below.
With this current line-up of J. Costa on vocals, Kurt Fraunfelter on rhythm guitar, Chris Drapeau on lead guitar, Brendan Misturado on bass and Jay Waterman on drums, a plethora of foreign and domestic performances, and literally hundreds of thousands of miles traveled, it appears that values and drive mixed with an old school metal and rock 'n' roll upbringing have brought together a juggernaut of a band that's clearing a path with a working-class ideology.
THY WILL BE DONE represents another chapter in the evolution of heavy metal. Their 2012 dose blends the thrash and groove elements that offered some of the late eighties and early nineties most memorable bands and albums, and yes, there are even solos too. THY WILL BE DONE is poised and ready to continue the heavy metal lineage and illuminate a new generation with the ways of the old.
