No Consequence announce new single, live dates, and reveal new album title, artwork and track-listing
Tuesday 5th February, 2013
UK technical metallers NO CONSEQUENCE have revealed their long-awaited sophomore album’s artwork, track-listing and title: “IO”. The debut single to be taken from the album, “Coerce:Conform”, will be released as a FREE download on 4 March via Basick Records, prior to their UK tour with Odessa.
Previously released in a demo form on a Metal Hammer magazine covermount CD, the band have made the album track “So Close to Nowhere” available to stream as a sneak preview to "IO". Check it out here: https://soundcloud.com/basickrecords/01-so-close-to-nowhere
Following the release of NO CONSEQUENCE’s debut record, “In The Shadow Of Gods”, word spread about this ferociously tight and heavy band within the clubs as well as in the media, gaining strong support from Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, Rock Sound and Kerrang. Tours with the likes of TesseracT, Monuments, Uneven Structure and Textures followed, as well as performances at Euroblast in Germany and UK Techfest, with the band picking up legions of fans along the way.
Rock Sound magazine described NO CONSEQUENCE’s debut as having “intelligently executed melodies, huge riffs, tight musicianship, killer solos and intense arrangements” and this is exactly what "IO" delivers, but with more dynamics, further harmonic exploration and an all round greater maturity.

Toyan St.Hilaire, GHOSTFEST’s director, comments:
“I have to be honest, after the sucess of last year's Ghostfest, I really felt the pressure to put together an event to match it, but this year has well exceeded what I was hoping for! Once again there'll be three stages and a varied mix of bands, so there will be something for everyone and we've booked some of the biggest names the festival has ever seen. This year is going to be BIG! Stay tuned for more announcements".
