What A Difference Three Months Makes

Well, it certainly has been an eventful few months since I last wrote here.

Autumn saw the bombshell that Static Distortion Records, the label we came to see as extended family, was to close it's doors as a conventional label at the end of 2013. The SDR artists remain a unit in the form of an artists collective, but it was very much the end of an era. Our thanks go to Steve Fearon for welcoming us into the fold and kicking arse for us during our time with SDR. We have forged new friendships, which I hope will remain for years to come.

In terms of the releases I've already alluded to in previous posts, the video and single for Coffin was released, and we're exceptionally thankful for those who submitted remixes for the single. Special mention must go to Jay Ruin, whose Ruinizer remix of the track features as the lead track on the single and also is used for the video soundtrack. Our most recent release is RE:LAPSE, which is a track for track remix version of [seek help], which is packed with storming remixes and well worth checking out, especially given that it's a free download!

The last month has seen me mastering tracks for Cease2Xist - an artist I have the greatest admirition and respect for. I'm currently mastering the upcoming EP/album "WIYGN?", and I can safely say this is the best mastering work I have done to date. You'll get to hear "WIYGN?" soon, and I promise it'll be worth it. Dayve Yates has put together a belter of a release, which also features a Defeat remix of the title track.

As far as the future is concerned, the coming months see us returning to Welwyn Garden City to play support for good friends Nine Day Decline (March 7th at The Green Room) and recording some new songs for a new EP.

Until the next time...
