The Skinny: UK metallers Malefice are set to return to the frontline on November 3rd with the release of their highly anticipated new EP Gravitas. Following a relentless touring schedule supporting 2012’s critically acclaimed Five album the band took a short hiatus, however their insatiable drive to create seriously heavy music quickly returned, putting them back on the writing wagon once again. The band are self-producing the EP with it being mixed and mastered by Justin Hill. The currently untitled record will feature four new tracks as well as a remix of the blistering single “V.”

The band are also very pleased to welcome new drummer James Pearly Cook into the Malefice family. He has been a good friend of the band for many years from his time playing with numerous bands including Anterior and Born Of Ruin. James is playing an active role in making the new EP and is very excited to hit the road later in 2014.
