The new single will also featured on an upcoming ‘Alternative Xmas’ Compilation courtesy of PP PROMO Records. Osmium Guillotine’s drummer and founder James Balcombe will also be releasing a single this Christmas with his Punk band The Tickturds. This is the first official release from the new line-up of the band who signed with MGR Records earlier this year. Osmium Guillotine have also recently confirmed they will be playing the Metal Gods Festival in Mansfield next year, this will be the second time the band has appeared at the festival.
Entropy have made the following announcement on their Facebook page;
RIGHT! Here are the two pieces of exciting news that we’ve eagerly been waiting to announce to you all!
First off: we have finally recruited another guitar player to go twin-axe-attack next to Sax, We’d like everyone to give a massive warm welcome to Will Cummings! and also if the teaching goes well (which it will) he shall be appearing on stage with us for the first time for our Colchester gig on the 20th February!
Second piece of news: before the release of the EP, we are going to be releasing “Curiosity” as a single to give you taster of the EP, its a never heard before track so it will be totally fresh to you guys when we get it out there!
Entropy have been in the studio recording their debut E.P. with Will Cummings (who has been recording and producing it) having previously worked with the band on their single Face Your Creation. Cummings is best known as the drummer in the American styled post-Hardcore band Arise.
The band had been advertising for a singer and an additional guitar player despite the popular #ed4vocals campaign by the local Metal scene to keep Ed Munson who currently fronts the band in post.
British Metal Revival band Monument have released their single “Runaway” on YouTube. The track will be officially released on the 18th of December when they play the Garage in London with support from MGR label mates Kaine.
The single has already been getting strong reviews and will also feature on Monuments debut album which will be released next year.
The 3 of us have just been announced as the band members with Blaze Bayley on his “Soundtracks Of My Life” 30 date European Tour for March/April. Just to be 100% clear, that’s not Absolva as support band but the 3 of us as Blaze’s band for this tour. This is a great opportunity for us to continue working whilst taking a small Absolva break before the album release & before our own tours re-start. Very much looking forward to working with Blaze & we’re sure to see many of you out there on the road.
