LIGHT THIS CITY To Release First New Album in a Decade!

Posted by admin on Sep.27, 2017


We are so excited to announced that LIGHT THIS CITY have reunited to record their first new LP in a decade! The band began in 2002 when best friends, vocalist Laura Nichol and drummer Ben Murray decided to start a melodic death metal project in the vein of At the Gates, Carcass, and In Flames. After the sparks were lit, the two soon wrote their debut 2003 full-length, The Hero Cycle, which quickly landed them a deal with Prosthetic Records, who would go on to release the band’s following three albums- 2005’s “Remains of the Gods”, 2006’s “Facing the Thousand”, and the band’s 2008’s swansong, “Stormchaser”…

In 2010, LIGHT THIS CITY played five final shows, the short tour titled “The Final Thrash Attack”, in which the band could celebrate the songs of “Stormchaser” and give the fans a bit of closure that they never received with the band’s sudden disappearance. In September of 2015, Darkest Hour requested that LIGHT THIS CITY play the San Francisco date of their 20th anniversary tour. The band quickly reunited within a few months to rehearse one final set that would celebrate the band’s four-album career. The show was absolutely one for the books, sparking the flame which lead the band to reunite.

LIGHT THIS CITY will enter Castle Ultimate Studios with Zack Ohren to record their fifth full-length LP in December. Murray’s own Creator-Destructor Records will be releasing the album in March of 2018; stand by for further updates to be released in the coming months. We have also launched a new line of LIGHT THIS CITY Merchandise, starting with two new t-shirts in our online store!
