- Working on organizing a South / West Coast tour for early August! We will be traveling with other fellow Pittsburgh experimental electronic artists. In no particular order, the tentative band roster is:
Prometheus Burning (Crunch Pod, Hive, Thac0)
Xanopticon (Hymen, Zhark, Mutant Sniper)
8Cylinder (Mode of Proof, Rhinoplex)
Vasculator (Void Tactical Media, also member of ProBurn)
Nothing has been set in stone yet… we are still figuring out the logistics of it all, what cities and dates. If any promoters down South or West Coast are interested, please email us to talk about things further.
- Combated in the 6th annual Galactic Assdragon Classic laptop battle last night. Saw many friends and familiar faces from all over the place. Contestants came from Ohio, Detroit, and even as far as Chicago. We plan to continue working on the tracks we used in the battle to lay down on our next 12″ record. These tracks lean pretty far into the area of Dubstep. We wanted to experiment with mixing styles for the battle like we do every year, and this year focused on combining elements of Dubstep and Industrial. The end result was a very dark, heavy sound with much emphasis on complex basslines and sub frequencies… not “traditional” Dubstep by any means.
- We have been making much progress in the studio with the Four Pi Movement project. The first (and possibly only) release is coming together slowly but surely. Expect to see a very limited but unique package in the near future, containing these recording sessions and some other hand made art and creations conceptualized for this release. A new recording was added to the myspace page entitled “Without Reason or Justification”.
- We recorded some vocals with Jim, aka DJ Hiem of the band Rein[Forced] for the Industrial Cancer Benefit compilation he is putting together. After months of work and changing things around, we are finally happy with our song and submitted the final version to him last week. Other artists that have submitted their songs so far are: 16 Volt, Alter Der Ruine, Molecule Party, Hype Factor, Everything Goes Cold, Interface, Assemblage 23, SD6, Backandtotheleft, System Syn, Caustic, XuberX, Jordan Decay, The Dark Clan, Encoder, Obscenity Trial, Boxed Warning, and a few more that I can’t remember off the top of my head. Plus there are still a bunch more who have not finished just yet, but will be complete in time to meet the deadline. We are damn proud to contribute to this compilation, as well as to the cause, which is to raise money to help fight cancer, which all the proceeds will be going to… like how a REAL fundraiser compilation with a REAL purpose should do.
Also this compilation is not only raising money for the cause, it is also already raising awareness. The local media has been picking up on Jim and what he is doing, and recently did a report and interview of him. Check it out: http://email@example.com
