This is the fourteenth album in their more than 30-year history. “This album kills! It’s all five guys with the gas pedal pushed to the floor for the entire album!” states Ken Mary.

“It was cool to have a new element of influence on this album with having Ken’s drum parts to partner with and play in and around his playing that also do with the guitars and vocals. Glad to have had Jacob Hansen bringing this album to the overall sound and energy it has, Jacob really highlights AK’s vocal melodies, as well as Steve and Michael’s songwriting, while the power of the rhythm section drives the songs.” – Michael Spencer

Flotsam And Jetsam Recruits Two New Band Members

Following a recent European tour, Flotsam And Jetsam has checked in with the following announcement about lineup changes:

“We would like to send out a huge thank you to the many fans and press that came out to support us on our tour with Sepultura. This tour was the largest European tour to date for Flotsam and Jetsam.

“Our main goal is to get connected to all of you, shake your hands, look you in the eyes and let you know how much we appreciate you. You are the life blood of music.

“As you know we released a complete reproduction of No Place for Disgrace this year. This was so we could present the album the way it was intended to heard. Many of you had great comments about this and that confirmed our decision to get this done.

“After completion of the 2013 tour with Testament in the US, Edward Carlson was no longer able to tour due to physical issues that would require back and neck surgery to possibly correct. We will miss our comrade and wish him well on his next adventure. Steve Conley has been officially recruited to fill the spot. Having played with David Ellifson (Megadeth) in F5, we are confident in his ability to hold the spot with integrity.

“Jason Ward’s departure happened after the tracking of Ugly Noise. Jason had spent nearly 16 years in Flotsam and decided to stay at home with his new family and career. He was and is one of the strongest personalities in the Flotsam catalog of players. We have all had a turn on the sidelines, we will miss his participation on the road and his whitty humor. Shorty after the Testament tour in 2013, Michael Spencer took the helm as bassist. He was the first bassist to replace Newsted in 1987 (Spencer was formerly in Sentinel Beast). He was a part of the writing of No Place for Disgrace in 1987, and he was on our first tour with Megadeth in the US and Europe. With that history, it made perfect sense that No Place should be redone. You can hear him on the reproduction of NPFD.”

The current line up is as follows:

Eric A.K. – Vocals
Michael Gilbert – Guitar
Kelly D. Smith – Drums
Michael Spencer – Bass (First bassist to replace Jason Newsted)
Steve Conley – Guitars (Formerly of F5)
