Sinthetik report that they will enter the studio today to start tracking drums for their debut release. The EP, as yet untitled, will consist of 4 tracks and will be available for a free digital download. The track listing is as follows:
1. The Summit
Friend For A Foe have posted a pre-production snipped for a new track, titled 'Idle Hands', on their SoundClick page. They write: "Just a little sample of one of our songs from up and coming 'Sky and the Fall' EP. NOT the final instrumental mix and the vocal mix is far from complete, but thought we should give you guys something since you've been so patient waiting for this EP!".
Corelia have uploaded to their Youtube page a 1-minute studio update video about the recording and tracking of their upcoming debut EP. Watch it below. They also announced in the video that the EP is planned for release in March 2011.
Solo guitarist Blackula has released a new instrumental track titled 'Serenade' for his project Lucrecia. It is available on his Facebook and Reverbnation pages. He writes: "Lucrecia is a solo Djent/Math/Progressive/Metal/whatever project based in Richmond, Indiana. I try not to limit myself based on genres or any kind of boundaries. I'm currently writing and recording an EP that will hopefully be out in spring. After said EP is dropped, I will be playing numerous shows, being a modern Djentleman, and dancing quite a bit."
EDIT: Due to Bandcamp download credits system, the EP is no longer available for free download. It can still be streamed/downloaded for free on the band's SoundCloud page. Thanks to The_Doctor for pointing that out.
Broken Sticks has published an interview with guitarist Chris Purvis of Friend For A Foe, in which he discusses his musical history, how the band started, and future plans for 2011. It is also stated that the band's upcoming six-track EP has been postponed to February, and that they will probably also release a full-length album this year.
