Sigiriya’s second full-length was recorded live onto analogue tape at Sonic One studio with Tim Hamill. Andrew Schneider (Shrinebuilder, Scissorfight, Big Business, among others) took care of the mixing in New York and Richard Whittaker mastered the album in London. Darkness Died Today sees the addition of new vocalist Matt ‘Pipes’ Williams, bringing a new roar to the songs.
On signing with Candlelight, Sigiriya commented: “Our intention has always been to spread the riff as far and wide as possible, and we’re honoured to be teaming up with Candlelight for the new album. The diversity of great bands on the label and the good relationship we have with the people there make it a natural home for us.”
Darren Toms, head of A&R for Candlelight Records had this to add: “I have known the guys in the band for nearly 20 years and watched them grow in the different bands they have been associated with, Acrimony being one of my favourite and underrated bands of all time, who carved something special into the UK doom scene in the early to late ‘90s. I am thrilled to welcome them to the label.”
