Such hard work!
Now we have Facebook to update us regularly whether we want to or not but every now and then something will slip by unnoticed and you keep wondering "Where are they now?" so I'm here to answer that question regarding a few great bands who have recently broken the silence.
"When can I hear it?"
"Will there be scat-singing?"
"If the last answer was yes, can we safely assume that BB have effectively become the new-old-Crinn?"
"To reiterate: When can I hear it?"
Brazen Bull are a tech-grind band from Australia who have, like Age of Silence, released one full length and an EP, albeit with different vocalists on each. I recommend listening to both while you await new material, just keep in mind that the vocalist on the full length is still with them (to the best of my knowledge) so if you prefer the original vocalist the sad truth is that his post-BB project Deluge never really took off. I like both vocalists and I'm happy (if) the new one stuck around but I would have loved to hear Deluge release an album even if they could have never played live.
More news on what's actually going on behind the scenes at Camp Errata soon but until then enjoy their debut and throw them a couple of dollars if you like it. Jazzy schizo-core bands need to eat too you know...
Their entire discography was shared in the last Freekend post so if you like this song check it out.
This is a pretty soft break-up though as Jonathan Pfeffer, the band's songwriter and only consistent member, will still continue to make music with various groups so it's more of a retirement of the name than anything else. He's even changed the artist on Capillary Action's Bandcamp to his own name so it could be seen as more of a transition than a break-up. Although I'm not sure if he's likely to play any CA songs live anymore.
He recently released a new song and if you want to know what's up you can follow his website:
I'll leave both Capillary Action albums below for your listening and buying pleasure.
Blood Command, who I wrote about recently, replied to my post about them saying that they are still active and working on new music. Their 2012 album Funeral Beach is wildly addictive and I highly recommend it if you're into fun and liking things. Big words I know but it's just so insanely catchy.
