Whitechapel (formed in 2006) is an American deathcore band named after the series of murders committed by Jack the Ripper in the East London district of Whitechapel, from Knoxville, Tennessee, U.S.

The band formed in 2006 by Knoxville residents Phil Bozeman on vocals, guitarists Ben Savage, Alex Wade and Ben Savage, bassist Gabe Crisp and drummer Kevin Lane. In 2007 after the release of a self-produced EP the band signed to the UK label Siege of Amida Records and Candlelight Records in the U.S., through which the band released their full-length debut “The Somatic Defilement”.

Before long Savage and Martin were replaced by guitarist Zach Householder and drummer Kevin Lane and signed with label Metal Blade. In 2008 arrived Whitechapel’s sophomore release “This Is Exile” after which they embarked on The Summer Slaughter Tour and their first headlining tour with Impending Doom and A Different Breed of Killer. Whitechapel’s fan base swelled with tour dates alongside popular acts such as Parkway Drive, Unearth and Trivium.

Produced by Jason Suecof, the band released their third album “A New Era of Corruption” in June 2010 debuting at No. 43 on the Billboard 200. The release led to featured spots at the California Metal Fest IV, 2010’s Warped Tour, a second stage show at the UK’s Download Festival and another U.S. headlining tour. Kevin Lane departed the group to return to college and was replaced by former Knights of the Abyss drummer Benjamin Harclerode.

In 2011 Whitechapel release the single “Section 8” ahead of a limited edition EP titled “Recorrupted”. The band embarked on another U.S. headlining tour named “The Recorruptour” before heading back to the studio with producer Mark Lewis to record their self-titled fourth LP. The album got its release in June 2012, debuted at No. 47 on the Billboard 200 and was led by the first single “Hate Creation”.

Whitechapel’s fourth full-length album “Our Endless War” proved to be the band’s highest charting album reaching No. 10 on the Billboard 200 and topping the U.S. Hard Rock chart.
