For anyone who's interested in the workings of the 'horse, I thought I'd provide a little update. We've been working hard over the last few months to complete the next album instrumentally and we're now 95% of the way there. Now it's time to tie up loose ends and work on the vocals. Time-wise we're very close to being able to consolidate it all for recording but then the next barrier is money. Currently we don't have the finances to record and we don't see that changing any time soon so, frustratingly, where in the past we've just taken ages to write it's money this time that's holding us back (yes, two years between releases is fast for us). It'll happen, we just have no idea when.
In other news some of us are as ever branching out. John has been playing with Queen of Swords http://www.myspace.com/queenofswordssound since their birth and has recently been joined by Ben. Pretty soon we'll all be playing with them.
Ben has recently joined Mothlite http://www.myspace.com/mothlite and has already played with them supporting Ulver at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and will be playing with them on the Isis tour this month. He continues to play with Armed Response Unit.
We'll get the album out as soon as we can. It's going to be extremely good, and if the demos were good enough for public consumption I'd post snippets of them. But they're not.
For now, though, goodnight.
