Pitchshifter Release “EFKD 2020” EP

Pitchshifter have released a new EP titled “EFKD 2020.“ The effort, which can be purchased HERE, features several new versions of “Everything’s Fucked“ featuring members of Static-X, Fear Factory, Bullet For My Valentine, etc.

JS Clayden commented:

“I thought that everything was as messed up as it was going to get in the year 2000 when we originally released the ‘Everything’s F**ked’ single; but we’re two decades down the road and the lyrics are still applicable. We’re living in a slow-motion apocalypse. What better way to finally jockey clown ship earth off the bluffs than a re-issue of a 20-year-old tune lamenting the madness with a bunch of like-minded deviant provocateurs, and some live dates?”

Here’s the various guests:

– Tony Campos (Static-X)
– Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory)
– Jason Bowld (Bullet For My Valentine)
– Arya Goggin (Skindred)
– Zak Tell (Clawfinger)
– Patrik Wiren (Misery Loves Company)

– Adam Frakes-Sime (Stamping Ground)
– Karl Middleton (Earthtone9)

Oathbreaker To Return For 2020 ArcTanGent Festival

Oathbreaker will be returning for this year’s ArcTanGent Festival. This will be the group’s first show since going on hiatus two years ago.

The band commented:

“It’s been over 2 years since the last Oathbreaker show, the dust has settled and the last couple of months we’ve been discussing whether or not to play another show. ArcTanGent felt like the right place to do so. We’re incredibly excited to play these songs again. This will most likely be the only Oathbreaker show in 2020. Hope to see a lot of familiar faces.”
