Upon returning home from the “They Came in Shoals” European tour, A Plea for Purging has entered Foundation Studios to record their third full length record entitled The  Marriage of Heaven and Hell.

“We had a killer time in Europe and met some great new friends but we are excited to get back to the states and start working on this record.  We are stoked to be working with Joey “The Doo Doo Man” Sturgis again.  Our working relationship on the last record was awesome.  We are excited on how Depravity came out and can’t wait to see what magic Joey puts on these new songs.”

– Plea vocalist, Andy Atkins

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell” is slated to hit stores 07.06.10.
