Amebix Reveal Release Date for ‘REDUX’ EP Via Profane Existence
Legendary metal/crust punk godfathers Amebix have risen! A three-song EP entitled ‘Redux’ will be released by the Profane Existence Records label on 28th June 2010. Featuring live and re-recorded versions of several of the band’s best-loved classics, including ‘Winter’, ‘Chain Reaction’, and the immortal battle cry, ‘Arise’, ‘Redux’ will be available on CD, 12″ LP and digitally. The songs were remixed by current Amebix drummer Roy Mayorga (Nausea, Crisis, Soulfly, Stone Sour) and those of you who dig vinyl will be treated to a free download card, which will feature a live version of “Progress?” as a bonus track. …
Amebix are reportedly slowly (but surely) working towards the release of a brand new album, which promises to both decimate the believers and convert the uninitiated. Rob “The Baron” Miller comments: “Amebix ended a series of shows and tours in 2009 by spending time in Derbyshire to record tracks for a new album. So far we have six songs recorded, and Stig and I have been writing independently so that when we all get a chance to meet again we should be able to complete the album material quite quickly. The new songs see Amebix as a more mature vehicle, with a lyrical and musical diversity that we are very happy with. It has been important for us to continue to explore musically rather than getting stuck in our own tracks. I think initially we are concerned about whether or not we would be able to write material that we would be happy with, but the songs so far are stronger than anything we have done in the past, without becoming overly technical, but remaining true to the ethos. …
“Roy Mayorga is currently recording with Stone Sour”, he continues, “after which they will be on the road for another year and a half, so our window of opportunity will occur when Roy is in Europe again and has time to spend in the studio with us. This means that we are all on high alert status; we may only have a week or so of notice when that window appears, so we’ll need to get a studio, accommodation, flights etc and crack into it! It’s exciting.”
