Escape the Fate will release their next album on Eleven Seven. It's due out this spring.

You can listen to a teaser of the new song "Ungrateful" below.

Of the signing, frontman Craig Mabbitt said, "We are excited to be working with all the people at Eleven Seven Music and having Monster partner with us in 2013! We are stoked to get shit rolling again and we are thankful for all our fans that have stuck with us during this down time. We hope everyone is ready to go hard with us in 2013."

The band will also take over the Sunset Strip in L.A. on Jan. 6. The day will end with a free show at the Roxy. A limited quantity of wristbands for the show will be available at Soundcheck Hollywood beginning Friday, Dec. 21. Festivities throughout the day will include an Escape the Fate store takeover at Soundcheck Hollywood, along with an autograph signing; a VIP pizza party at the Rainbow; a party in the Green Room; an afterparty at On the Rox; contests and more.

Drowning Pool are offering a free download of "One Finger and a Fist," a song title that should invite more than a few raised eyebrows and frat party jokes. It's available for a limited time only at this location so hurry up and grab it now. It will appear on the band's upcoming album, due out next year.

Rotting Christ are offering the song "In Yumen" from ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ (Do What Thou Wilt) as a free download. Grab it here.
