Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan) and Reba Meyers (Code Orange) have released a new EP featuring five versions of their collaborative track “Lowered.” This includes the original version, two remixes, an instrumental version, and an acapella version. You can check those out below:
Puscifer have released a new remix single featuring reimagined versions of “Bullet Train To Iowa” and ”The Underwhelming.” The tracks were remixed by frontman Maynard James Keenan’s A Perfect Circle bandmates Billy Howerdel and James Iha. Howerdel handled “Bullet Train To Iowa,” while Iha handled “The Underwhelming.” A 7 inch vinyl pressing of the single can be found HERE. Producer Mat Mitchell commented:
“It’s always a pleasure hearing other artists’ voices over what we’ve created. I love these remixes.”
Pearl Jam have digitally released new Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 mixes of “Ten” and “No Code.” Producer/engineer Josh Evans commented:
“These two albums sound amazing in the immersive format. For ‘Ten‘, the goal was to create the best version of the record, bigger, wider, and higher fidelity; now, it actually sounds as great coming out of your speakers as it does in your memory of hearing it the first time. Twenty-five years ahead of its time, ‘No Code‘ almost sounds like it was intended to be an immersive album; experimental layers, nuance, and raw aggression are all amplified and expanded in a simultaneously bigger and more intimate experience.”
In other news, the band are also currently streaming a live show that was recorded in Moline, IL in 2014. The set is available HERE until August 30 at 11:59pm PDT.
Zombi and Uniform have teamed up for a new split release. The effort, which can be purchased on Bandcamp, features Zombi’s remix of Uniform‘s “Shame“ and Uniform’s remix of Zombi’s “XYZT.“
Uniform’s Michael Berdan commented:
“What a wild time to be alive! As many of you know, we released ‘Shame’ this past fall. If you’ve been paying attention you might have noticed we haven’t played any shows lately. Come to think of it, hardly anyone’s played any shows for about a solid year. It feels like we’re living in a collective purgatory most of the time. As much as human interaction freaks me out, I kind of almost miss it? Almost.
Just about every musician on the planet has been effectively sidelined without touring income for about a day short of forever now. Although the vaccines are coming around and the end of the pandemic might be in sight, chances aren’t realistically good for live music to make a full comeback until 2022. In layperson’s terms: We’re all fucked.
While we’re all out of commission with no money and nothing but time on our hands, we figured we might as well make the best of a bad situation by working on a big project with some friends and hopefully making some much needed cash. Starting this Bandcamp Friday and continuing for the next few months, we’ll be teaming up with an artist we admire to remix a song from each other. First up in this remix series will be Zombi.
Zombi are an important band to us. The music that Steve and Tony make continually treads new and inspiring ground while building and improving upon the horror soundtrack template laid out by legends like Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, and Riz Ortolani. Their most recent album is called ‘2020’ and it was a major favorite of us in the Uniform camp last year. Zombi are master musicians and incredible human beings who we are honored to have as friends. Uniform have remixed Zombi’s ‘XYZT‘ and Zombi have remixed Uniform’s ‘Shame.’ We all hope you like it. We all hope you buy it. We all need the money.”
“We wanted to curate a remix record for quite some time. The idea really got some legs on our last European tour, and with some idle time on our hands the back end of 2020 was the perfect time to get this project fully underway. We’ve handpicked some of our favourite artists to work with outside of the metal genre to take our songs and make them their own.”
Blake Judd is streaming a new Nachtmystium remixes and rarities compilation, titled “Retox: Remixes And Rarities.” You can check that out below. In other news, he recently chatted with Metal Sucks, and said he is still going to try to “make things right with the people [he] burned.”
