With the folding of the UK-based Juggernaut label back around Christmas (amazingly, right before the release of DECEPTOR), we found ourselves back at the drawing board, so to speak. DECEPTOR desperately wants to get released, but it seems that the Universe doesn’t think it is time yet.
The album has been completed for nearly a year, and we have been promising it for some time. We here at the Brainclaw Enclave are considering several other methods of release, but we want to get the best and widest distribution possible, and a label can often achieve that, where a self-release usually can’t.
That being said, we currently have interest from two labels, and are busy exploring these options. Rest assured that this album WILL come out, one way or another. As we snake through the chaos that is the modern music “industry,” we will keep you up to date as much as possible.
We are all eager to get this released, as writing of new material has been going on for some time! Closing this chapter/trilogy of the Brainclaw saga will be good for everyone. Stay tuned for more details as they become available, and as always, thanks for your undying support through all of this turbulence.
Your continued interest and emails astound us… – David
It now looks like the new release will contain at least ten brand-new tracks, with a bonus of at least five remixes, some by Brainclaw, and some by distinguished artists, tentatively including Cesium 137, Dedman and John Ruszin of Collinwood13, ex-Carfax Abbey and Single Bullet Theory.
It is shaping up to be a big album, recorded and mastered in high resolution for superior sound. John Ruszin, also live guitarist for Brainclaw, is lending his talents in recording guitar tracks for this new collection of songs. Be prepared for a meaner, heavier Brainclaw!
It is uncertain at this time if the album will see label release or will be released independently. There is currently some label interest, and time will tell what manner of distribution this will be. We do know that CDs will be pressed, with the possibility of some limited edition deluxe editions. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available…
