I've been working in the shadows on many other things.
We've got a new batch of Witchchord songs ready to go for a second release. Just have to get things together to record all the new stuff. Very guitar-heavy this time, which is awesome because Shane is such an incredible guitarist.
Finished work on a new project called Clawing that is a creepy ambient doom drone concept called Spectral Estates. Currently mixing it right now. Austin Gaines from Calques and Japanese Women and Matt Finney from How We Lived and It Only Gets Worse are involved, and their work is incredible. Should have some sounds up soon, and hopefully a cassette release.
