Philadelphia grind trio Die Choking have announced the release of their new full-length record and follow-up to last year’s II 7″. Simply titled III, the new full-length will arrive digitally October 8 via The Compound with the vinyl formats to ship out October 23 (pre-order here and here.). The new album was recorded, mixed and engineered by Will Yip (Lauryn Hill, Cop Problem, etc), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, etc). Founding bassist/vocalist Paul Herzog issued the following comments on the record:

Die Choking’s forthcoming album III is a dastardly Americanized reinterpretation of Plato’s allegory of the cave. It is a dense work and presents a politicized metaphysical cycle: origin, liberation, corruption, falter, violent degradation, decay, and rebirth. III is a brutal reference to both ancient and modern interpretations of existence, morality, and politics. This album is a short, simple and a delightfully entropic vision. It presents a nihilistic emergence from ignorance that is met not by a joyous embrace of eternal knowledge but is heralded by a vision of an eternal, ever-stretching graveyard. It is here that coffin after coffin and grave upon grave stretches into the forever.”

The album’s artwork, track listing and the band’s forthcoming tour dates can be found after the break.
