DECIMATE 2.0 ANNOUNCES TRAVELER (Portland, OR / Vancouver, BC / Calgary/Edmonton, AB)

April 3, 2019

 Brought to life over the winter of 2017 by Matt Ries.  He recruited JP Abboud on vocals to take part in the project with zero expectations. After the demo caught fire, it only made sense to gather up some friends Toryin Schadlich (guitar), Chad Vallier (drums) and Dave Arnold (bass). Now signed to the label Gates Of Hell Records, they are in full force. Now with their full length album released in February of this year, they're ready to kill.

"Everything about this album is phenomenal. Every song has several adrenaline-pumping vocal lines, an avalanche of riffs, complementary bass work, and propulsive drums. I doubt anyone could possibly be disappointed with what Traveler have produced here after their promising demo. This feels like a band who took their influences, honored them, and created something that feels both familiar and completely new at the same time. They completely live up to the hype, creating what I believe is destined to be a modern trad classic."

 " "This year has been a really exciting experience," says Ries. "It's also been extremely challenging getting everything together. Our love for the music has kept us on the right track. However, the feedback from everyone has lit a fire under our asses to make the best possible record. I didn't expect to be working under such a great label so soon. Again, all of this has been nothing but motivation to keep moving. Now that we are wrapping up the year, we are focused on making a great live show for everyone! We can't wait to rock the stages for all of you. We have a lot of great plans in the works for shows and future projects. So, the way I see it, we're just getting started. FEEL THE REIGN OF STARBREAKER!" "
