Neck of the Woods Announce Updated North American Tour Dates

Vancouver, BC’s progressive tech death metallers Neck of the Woods have issued an update of North American tour dates in support of their debut album “The Passenger” released last September via Basick Records. The debut album was recorded at Rain City Recorders and produced by Stu McKillop and the band, with art direction by vocalist Jeff Radomsky and layout design by Kevin Moore at Soft Surrogate. The nine-track offering truly captures the band’s crushing blend of progressive, death-inspired, technical, and groove-laden metal.

Guitarist Dave Carr comments: “We can’t wait to hit the road and make some new friends. Being from Ontario myself, I’m personally very excited to bring this band back to where I grew up and play the circuit. This is a huge opportunity to get our music out to a whole new fan base, especially with the US dates. We’re ready to hit the road and show everyone what NOTW is all about!”

Vocalist Jeff Radomsky adds: “We’re all looking forward to playing for a ton of new audiences across Canada and the Eastern U.S.. We’ll be branching into so many new areas, most of which I’ve never traveled to! Save the date, this tour will be one you won’t forget!”

Cover Of The Call’s “Too Many Tears” Posted By Celldweller

Electronic-rock artist/producer Celldweller has released a cover version of The Call’s song “Too Many Tears,” as the second single from the upcoming album “Offworld.” Celldweller’s takes the emotionally gripping track and modernizes it as an alternative/shoegaze epic in homage of original songwriter, Michael Been, who passed away in 2010.

“Offworld” departs from Celldweller’s signature sound of aggressive guitars, blasting beats and ass-kicking intensity and delivers a journey of sentimental feels and emotionally gripping tracks, showcasing the intimate song-writing side of project mastermind, Klayton. The album is available for digital, CD, and vinyl pre-order now.”Offworld” releases on July 28th, 2017 via his independently owned/operated label FiXT.

Klayton commented: “I really loved “Into the Woods” by The Call. I thought Michael Been was a brilliant songwriter and Lyricist but their sound was generally a little more traditional than I liked. I wanted to take this lyrically powerful song and produce it in my style which fit perfectly within the vibe I wanted on this album.”
