Bloodshot Dawn UK/Ireland Tour Announced – To Release “Reanimation” January 2018

Earlier this year Bloodshot Dawn had entered the studio to begin work on their third full length album, entitled Renanimation; an album that also features prominent guests including Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Nevermore), Paul Wardingham, Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams, The Faceless), Mendel Bij De Leij (Aborted).

Since their acclaimed self-titled and second album Demons, there has been shifts in the bands ranks making way for new members, Canadian shredder Morgan Reid, drummer James Stewart (also of Vader and Divine Chaos) and bass player Giacomo Gastaldi. Frontman and last founding member Josh McMorran reflects on the losing all members from the Demons line up as a huge shock to the system, “I had to take sometime to think about how to move forward with the bands sound and honestly thinking wasn’t what was needed. When Morgan joined the band he worked tirelessly on riffs and ideas for songs which I sculptured into my design and feel for how I thought the album should flow. We met up over a two week period and turned hundreds of ideas into ten tracks very naturally. The general feeling is that we now for the first time have a solid direction and process, we work as a unit instead of separate solo efforts within the band.”

“We recorded guitars and drums in the east of Germany and Czech simply because that’s where Morgan and James are based. The studio in Czech, Babylon Studios, had an incredible drum room which was a huge selling point to this studio. We recorded guitars at Morgans home studio, which follows a similar process to our previous records. After that we headed for Sweden to work with Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry) for final guitar pieces, additional layers, mixing and mastering. Per is a good friend and an extraordinary musician and his ear and eye for the big picture has helped us create Reanimation and pushed us to evolve our sound in a very natural way.”

“As for the stories within the album, a lot of it is ambiguous, regarding personal struggles, as well as observations on modern day society. But as with all Bloodshot Dawn records the lyrics aren’t always as clear cut and it’s the sci-fi artwork that really tells the cover story so to speak. We worked with a good friend Chris Kewli who is a concept artist with an incredibly creative mind. The artwork is the third part of a trilogy of art continuing and finishing the concept that started with the first two Bloodshot Dawn albums. The front cover pictures an alien approaching a war torn earth who’s coming to clean up the planet of human life and refresh the earth back to its former glory! The art unfolds further through the inlays of the CD.”

As well as the news of an imminent new release the band will be on tour throughout UK/Ireland tour, their first in almost 2 years!

Australian Tour Dates Announced By Mono

Japanese instrumental rock outfit Mono is returning to Australian shores this November for a string of tour dates. They will be supported by Sydney’s visceral Dumbsaint and a plethora of local talent across the country.

Brisbane’s show will feature Balloons Kill Babies (who just released the EP “Prodromal”), Sydney gets Grun (who released the first record in many years earlier in 2017), Melbourne gets Solkyri and Adelaide gets Last Days of Kali.

The tour is In celebration of ten years since the debut visit to Australia and the band will visit Adelaide for the first time ever, as well as returning to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Perth – adding this – this visit follows the 2016 album “Requiem for Hell” and will feature the band playing music that spans the entire catalogue across a close to two hour show.

Mono was originally formed in 1999 – a unique approach of blending orchestral arrangements and shoegaze guitar noise which has been held in extremely high regard; so much so, that the band’s musicianship was praised. One of the most monumental live memories of the band was a special set of shows with a 23-piece orchestra in New York, Tokyo, London and Melbourne.

The Australian tour dates are as follows:

Wednesday, November 8th – Brisbane, QLD @ The Triffid
With support from Balloons Kill Babies

Thursday, November 9th – Sydney, NSW @ Manning Bar
With support from Grun

Friday, November 10th – Melbourne, VIC @ Max Watts
With Support from Solkyri

Saturday, November 11th – Adelaide, SA @ Unibar
With support from Last Days of Kali

Sunday, November 12th – Perth, WA @ Badlands
