My love for Doomriders is no secret. The band, which initially started as a side project from members of Converge and Cave In has blossomed into a full-fledged actual project, and the band is now done recording their new album.
Frontman Nate Newtown posted the following on Facebook yesterday:
Hello Friends! Life has been crazy for the 4 of us as of late (especially the past 24 hours, our hearts go out to all victims and loved ones of people involved in yesterday’s tragedy) but we just wanted to give you a quick update. We are currently mastering our new record with Nick Zampiello at New Alliance. We will hopefully have a full announcement with all the info regarding the new album very soon. In the meantime be sure to get your tickets for our show with Boris at the Brighton Music Hall on May 5th. Come and SHOUT IT OUT LOUD WITH US!!!
That means we can be rocking and rolling to new Doomriders tuneskies this summer. I am beyond excited. While I wait, I'll just listen back to this live audio recording from 2009 of the band ripping through some of their tunes, including their instant classic "Black Thunder." Check it out. Also, live footage!
