Looking ahead into 2011..

Hey all, here's some news regarding what we got coming up next year:

Dysrhythmia is about half way through writing the next record. We'll start demoing stuff in the Spring and perhaps share a track or two online. There's a chance we'll be playing a Brooklyn show in March. Stay tuned. Otherwise, a new record won't be likely until 2012. The wait will be worth it, promise.

One of the reasons for that is simply due to the number of other musical ventures we have happening.

Gorguts will be recording the new album in February, with a scheduled Summer release. Touring will follow.

Krallice will have a new record out in April.

Zevious will be doing their first full US tour in March/April.

I'll have a new solo record called 'Transparencies' out in March/April.

They'll be a record coming Summer/Fall tentatively titled 'Night Sessions' which is a collaboration between myself and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Costanza Francavilla.

In addition, I've joined a new band called Vaura, which has just begun playing live in the NYC-area (next show Dec. 19th @ Union Pool). This band lets me express myself in a different way. Anyone that knows me knows I love all that 80's English post punk/goth, moody pop stuff... this has some of that influence, but mixed with metal influences as well. The band also features Kayo Dot mainman Toby Driver on bass, along with Josh Strawn and Charlie Schmid (both also of the fantastic Religious to Damn)

I recently guested on a 20 minute track for long running Philadelphia-based experimental progressive metal/hardcore band Starkweather. This should be out sometime next year as part of a split release. It was an honor for me to play on this track. They've been one of my favorite bands for years.

That's all for now. Thanks again to all of you that could make it out to see us this year on tour. We had some memorable times.

First day arriving in LA, Mike Lerner (Behold... the Arctopus) takes us out to eat, and drives Colin around town to purchase a new bass, and extra gear that never arrived when shipped from Germany at the end of our European tour.

Cynic at the El Ray, first night of tour.

Tasty dinner from the super-cool chef at Slims in San Francisco.

Cynic played a festival this day in Seattle, so us and Intronaut played the Funhouse.

A mysterious man appeared out of nowhere and handed us this delicious box of donuts, then disappeared. Thanks!

The most annoyingly-named venue ever.

Not sure what Paul is telling us here, but it must've been funny.


Colin, with Shane of Guzzlemug. These guys came to the rescue in St. Paul when Intronaut's van broke down (Dysrhythmia was using all their backline), and let us use their amps, and drums.

Jarrett (soundman), Markus, and Omeed (lighting/visuals).

Markus passes out after one beer.

Bottom Lounge treated us very well, it felt like being in Europe again.
