As most of you probably know by now, Colin and myself are now members of progressive death metal greats, Gorguts. Both of us were long-time fans of this band before joining, and to have a chance to perform and collaborate creatively with them has been a true joy. Here is a link to a demo montage of some of the various tunes we've written so far. These are just instrumental at this time, vocals/lyrics are still being composed. More songs are being worked on and we hope to get into the studio to record the new album sometime this Fall. In the meantime, they'll be a few upcoming performances: May 25 @ Great Scott's Allston, MA / May 26 @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn, NY / May 27 @ Kung Fu Necktie Philadelphia, PA / May 28 @ Sonar Baltimore, MD as part of Maryland Deathfest. The first 3 shows will also feature Portal, Krallice, and Bloody Panda. Can not wait.
In Dysrhythmia news, the European dates are almost finalized. It sure will be interesting to see how this goes for us. We're already getting the ipods loaded with various comedy/prank call records to amuse ourselves with on the van rides. Europe, you'll also get a sneak peak at some of the new material we've been writing, as we plan to debut a few of these tunes on this tour. The direction so far feels slightly more melodic than any of the previous records, while still retaining our "dys-rhythmic-ness", if you will. I'm also imposing a new rule on myself to not write every single song in a completely different tuning.
