Spineshank Pre Production Begins

Posted on February 12, 2008

The band start pre-production on their third release come Monday 10 June. They will be joined in the studio with Howard Benson and Mike Plotnikoff. Where? L.A. Shortly before entering the studio to start work on what will be their 3rd release, Spineshank guitarist Mike Sarkisyan takes a few minutes to let us know what is up in the world of Spineshank. His words are as follows: hello hello hello!!! Wanna update you guys on what we’re up to. Well, the record is pretty much written. We start pre-production today (June 10) and we’ll start recording June 24th. Howard Benson is gonna produce the record and we’re gonna be recording right here in Los Angeles. I feel that this is gonna turn out to be the best SpineShank record ever, and I mean that. It’s gonna be called Violent Mood Swings – the tittle track is brutal, probably the heaviest thing we’ve ever done. Some other song titles for you: “Obsessive Compulsive”, “Dead To Me”, “Self Destructive Pattern”. As I’ve said before, this record has some of the heaviest, fastest stuff we’ve ever done, and some of the most melodic. Overall, I think it’s more “extreme” in every aspect. We’re not planning on doing a cover or anything like that. We should be done with the record sometime in late August or early September, so it’ll hopefully get released later this year. We don’t know how many songs are gonna end up on the record, but there will be no “fillers”. I’ll try to do more updates from the studio to keep you up to date with what’s going on. Until then take care and keep it rockin. -Mike Violent Shankings – Spineshank will begin pre-production on their upcoming new album “Violent Mood Swings” with producer Howard Benson (Sepultura, P.O.D.) on May 28th. They expect to finish up the process shortly after and are slated to start recording the album on June 10th with 15 songs in total set to be tracked. Around 11-12 are planned for inclusion on the album and the rest will be used for b-sides, soundtracks and video games. If all goes according to plan the album will see a release in early November and will be preceded by an as of yet undetermined first single and video.
