Album Notes
Between the Madness, available everywhere November 12th, is Vangough's third studio album and follow-up to the critically acclaimed Kingdom of Ruin released in 2011. Spread across twelve emotionally charged songs and topping out over 70 minutes of harsh textures and exotic flavors, fans will no doubt consider this a defining watershed moment in the band's career.

Coming off the heels of their sophomore CD, returning members Clay Withrow and Jeren Martin united with newcomer Kyle Haws on drums to begin work on a worthy successor. They entered Bell Labs in the summer of 2012 to record drums with longtime friend and engineer Sterling Winfield before returning to Clay's private studio where they tinkered away for the next several months.

Featuring a darker more unified sound, this album is a caustic and vicious spiral into the depths of human frailty. With tracks like "Infestation" and "Thy Flesh Consumed" pushing the boundaries of Vangough's tempestuous new approach to metal, Between the Madness is a stark contrast to the previous albums. It stands as a bold statement to where the band is heading, as well as a thought-provoking reflection on where they have been. With a greater emphasis on collaboration from bandmates Jeren and Kyle, Vangough were able to craft an even more distinctive style that focuses more on groove and feeling. In other words, this is the album fans have been waiting for.

Once again produced by guitarist/vocalist Clay Withrow, Between the Madness was an intentional move to mature the band's sound, both vocally and with the song's arrangements, into something that stood out among progressive metal releases. "I find that I don't listen to much music in our particular genre," explains Clay. "With that in mind, I wanted to make something that had its own unique flavor- apart from everything else that has come before us."

With the release of their third album, Vangough have stepped out of the shadows of their influences and delivered something emotionally outstanding and heartfelt. A lyrically poignant collection of songs that bravely pushes the band into an unexplored minefield of musicality. "Between the Madness is the most collaborative Vangough album to date," says Clay. "It took two albums to really mine the depths of what we could achieve and where we wanted to be musically but the end result is extremely cathartic." Metal Underground says, ""There has never been a better time to jump off of whatever progressive metal train you've been on and ride with Vangough." Releasing on November 12th, fans can order Between the Madness in a variety of formats including a 6-panel Digipak, which features the iconic eyeflower artwork from Rainer Kalwitz or as a 24-bit digital download. Brave, eccentric and chemically unstable- it is time to step into the madness.
