New Tracks In and Words from Mike
Posted on February 12, 2008Somewhere amongst the grubby fists of our A&R Department here at Roadrunner, one can find 4 new Spineshank tracks. A few days ago the band delivered a disc with some of the new material they have been writing - three songs which have yet to be named, and the fourth being dubbed "Dead To Me". So, what does the band have to say about the new material at this point in time? Time for a little update from Tommy Decker (drummer)..."Hi everybody (hi dr. nick) just wanted to catch everybody up on whats up with the new album. We've been writing a lot of stuff and it's coming out awesome. I think it's the next logical step for the band. some of it is the heaviest stuff we've ever done. There's a new song that will definitely be a live show closer. It's really brutal! Sort of like the Height Of Callousness but even heavier. We've also been experimenting with some different kind of songs lately, really dark and dynamic. Of course there are the same Spineshank elements that have always been there, electronics, anger, good grooves, quiet parts that explode into chaos. We are gonna take our time - we want to make the best record we can and that takes time, so bear with us. It will be out this year though (barring any catastrophes). Well, I've gotta get back to writing music so I'll post again soon, when things are a little more finished. Bye, Tommy" The man behind The Production Gospel According To Dave tells that the band will most likely keep writing and recording new demos over the next 3 months, before heading into the studio to record shortly thereafter. Phase II is upon us...you have been warned...resistance is futile...
Just before Christmas, Spineshank guitarist Mike Sarkisyan wrote the following:
"What's up motherfuckers!!!!! Just thought i'd drop you all a line letting you know what we've been up to. 2 days after we got home from the UK (which was one of the best tours we have done) we locked ourselves up in our studio and started working on record #3. Right now we have about 7 songs (most of them don't have vocals) and we're pretty fucking excited about them. All i can tell you at this point, is that it's gonna be the best SpineShank record by far, and we're not gonna rest till it's AMAZING. It's heavier yet more melodic at times (yea yea yea I know every band says that but wait till you hear it). We've been listening to a lot of Weezer, Foo Fighters, Aphex Twin, Atari Teenage Riot, Slayer, The Beatles etc..... We're hoping it could be out this summer, but we're not gonna rush it. We're gonna make sure it's 110% before it comes out. Till next time, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. see ya . MIKE"
