Cormorant - Unveil New Vocalist/Bassist, New Album Update

When Cormorant announced that Arthur von Nagel was leaving the band, fans were concerned. Well, his replacement has finally been unveiled and it will be bassist/vocalist Marcus Luscombe (Vengince, ex-Cloakwheel). At this point, the band is actually preparing to enter Trakworx Studio in South San Francisco to record the follow-up to 2011's Dwellings. A late 2013/early 2014 release is expected, but we should know more soon.

The recording, mixing and mastering will once again be handled by Justin Weis (Agalloch, Slough Feg, Hammers Of Misfortune) and is scheduled to begin in September. The new record will explore the band's black metal and doom influences.

Says the band: "We're excited to have Marcus Luscombe join Cormorant for our next album. Marcus is a Bay Area native who has been active in the metal scene since 1999 as lead guitarist, songwriter and backing vocalist for Vengince (Ivory Tower/Cargo Records) and lead singer, lyricist and guitarist for Cloakwheel (Nightmare Records). We're very impressed by his creativity and musicianship, and we look forward to utilizing his talents on the upcoming record and beyond."

Cormorant's entire discography is currently streaming on their Bandcamp page at this location so you can catch up before the new album comes.
