We’ll be doing a radio interview on Seton Hall, New Jersey’s 89.5FM WSOU, this Monday around 6pm (give or take). For those of you out of range, go to www.WSOU.net and you can livestream from there.
So it looks like we won’t have copies of Ressentiment vinyl at the show. We were supposed to get 2 boxes but it seems that DHL may have lost one of them. We’re investigating and will keep you posted.
If you preordered by March 17th we’ll be shipping out your vinyl this week. If you ordered after that we’ll be shipping as soon as we find the missing box, or can get a new one from Germany.
We’re really sorry about the delay. If anyone who ordered after March 17th would like a refund, email us and we’ll take care of it. Thanks everyone.
A lot of people have been asking for lyrics, and sure, perhaps most of those folks didn’t pay for the record, but hey, they still may be good looking people, and you never say no to a good looking person. So here you go.
I’ll add the link to the media page next week when I redo a few other things on this site and our myspace page.
If you’ve read the last couple issues of Decibel you may have noticed a 1-page feature and a great review of ours. If you haven’t read them, here’s some scans.
So if you read the “official press release” you’ll know that East Of The Wall had a lineup change, but what this essentially means is that East Of The Wall and Biclops are one band. Who didn’t see this coming? Yes, we know this makes the history of our names now a college level class, but that’s kind of the point: we’re done with confusing people. We’re one collective, we have been for a while, and now we have one name.
The long and short of it was that we love Mike to death but he had other obligations, so Seth filled his throne. Chris was already leaning East Of The Wall songs to be the touring guitar player since Matt can’t tour, so when the drummer swap happened East Of The Wall was now in an interesting position. Effectively, the live East lineup was Biclops.
So we’ve thrown up our hands and said screw it. There’s no point in arbitrarily dividing our music into instrumental and vocal bands. We’ll still play instrumental music and music with vocals. The writing and local show lineup will be all five of us, but we’ll tour as a four-piece. We’ll probably have specific focuses for individual records going forward so as not to muddy the waters, but honestly it’s all uncharted territory, which is pretty exciting.
But enough abstraction. What does this mean in the short term? Well first of all we have split ep with Rosetta and Year Of No Light, which was just released by Translation Loss.
Next, you might recall that Biclops has a record fully recorded, which we have titled Ressentiment. This will be the first full-length release by the new East Of The Wall collective, via Translation Loss this summer.
Then in 2011 we’ll be releasing the first record written entirely by the new lineup. We have it almost halfway completed already, and the plan is to not leave any of our fans out to dry. Not to get too specific but we have a pretty big idea for a concept record that’ll span the breadth of everything we’ve done.
We’ll be touring the hell out of 2010, so check back with us soon.
