Canadian Progressive Metal Outfit Third Ion, featuring former members of The Devin Townsend Band, Into Eternity, and Annihilator, have announced the July 8 release of sophomore album Biolith. The new album will be released on Glasstone Records and is the first to feature ex-Annihilator vocalist Dave Padden.

Padden’s years of experience with Annihilator, and the many records on which he has appeared, has already proven to be a major asset, and has brought the band to new level of space-time supremacy. Third Ion once again, tapped artist Harley K at Necrographix to mastermind the artwork for Biolith, and to bring the story of the 10-minute, epic title track to life.

Third Ion is the product of a mutual love of prog, video games, and science. Formed in 2014 and spread across Canada, the band finished their first full length record by the end of the year; 13/8Bit was released worldwide on Glasstone Records, May 25 2015.

Peaking at #14 on iTunes Metal Charts, 13/8Bit was fully embraced by press across the globe, receiving 9/10 at metal.de, 8.5/10 in Aardshock Magazine, as well as featured streams at Bravewords.com, and Metal Hammer Norway. Unfortunately, shortly after the release of 13/8Bit, singer Tyler Gilbert decided to leave the band to continue focusing on his own original music and career. The band finished writing the followup record while on the hunt for a replacement through the end of the year.

In January of 2016, Third Ion announced that the mighty Dave Padden, had stepped in, and has recorded all the vocals for their sophomore album Biolith, due July 8 2016 on Glasstone Records.
