||Deathgrinders have updated their MySpace with the following New Year's message:
"Hails dirty bastards! 2008, a year of likely recession and warpiss is upon us and I'm sure we can all drink to that. It will also mark Circle of Dead Children's 10th year in the ear-slaughter business. 2007 was a bum year for CODC and without a doubt our least active, but after all the craziness I think we're ready to step into 2008 with more fire than ever.
In February, Matt Francis joined as CODC's 4th and hopefully last drummer. Despite the 7-hour distance and infrequent band practices, we've been able to write the majority of a new yet-to-be-titled album which we're confident to say will be the most cataclysmic and venomous release that we've done in 10 years. Matt's addition has allowed the band to step into a new realm of noxious sonic hate.
Shortly after Matt's merger, Joe Horvath became seriously ill and spent several months battling through numerous surgeries and a nearly fatal MRSA staph infection. With the help of bass player Drew Harritan's recording abilities, Joe was able to put a cap onto at end of his health crisis by recording the already infamous guest vocals for the newest Anaal Nathrakh release, "Hell Is Empty and All of the Devils Are Here". A truly nasty audio synthesis; Joe handled all the vocals on their track, "Genetic Noose".
Circle of Dead Children plans to book studio time in February or March of 2008 and deliver a new full-length album later in the year on Willowtip Records.
We are also planning to book a 2008 US west coast tour as well as a 2008 European and possibly South American tour. We'll also be looking for sporadic weekend shows around the east and midwest. Anyone seriously interested in assisting with booking/promotions is asked to get in touch.
New shirt design in the merch store! Grim hoodies and more... All printed with reverse-osmosis virgin lamb blood, no doubt.
Thanks to all who've stuck with us over the past 10 years and to all the new friends we've made. With your help we can kill this fucking world!"
