Blood In The Gears will hit stores on August 24th.  It is The Showdown’s fourth full-length record, and their second on Solid State.  A video trailer for the new album can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8B8tX-_-ufo <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8B8tX-_-ufo> .

Blood In The Gears was recorded and produced by The Showdown’s own Jeremiah Scott (bass) at his home studio, Anthem Productions, in Nashville.  The album was mixed by Steve Blackmon (Living Sacrifice, Project 86), with Troy Glessener at Spectre handling the mastering.  Artwork comes courtesy of Ryan Clark at Invisible Creature Inc. Blood In The Gears is The Showdown’s second Solid State release, following 2008’s Back Breaker.
