hi everyone,
we launched the "live 4" CD preorder today through our webstore. for some this is cause for joy, for others extreme anger....
some of you are upset that you HAVE to buy a shirt or hoodie to get the CD - YOU DO NOT HAVE TO! we will be selling the CD, by itself, no strings attached very shortly. the preorder is for people who WANT both a limited garment and the CD, and this is OPTIONAL. we're not trying to force anybody's hand, nor are we greedy as some of you have already so kindly suggested. we will also be selling this CD on our next couple tours, so you can always get one at the shows too, so don't panic! we're trying to take care of everyone's needs and desires, so please be patient with us. we appreciate your support and we're not trying to take advantage of your good will - SHIRTS AND CDs FOR SOME, CDs ONLY FOR OTHERS!!! thank you.....

Summer Salutations Everyone! Fall US Tour With TOOL!

So the new record is complete. We finished mixing a few days ago, and although we are reluctant to divulge much about it at this point, we will reveal that It’s comprised of 8 songs, a little over an hour of music. Ipecac Recordings will once again be releasing suggestion CD, and the expected release date is Halloween, Oct. 31st.

We should have dates up soon for a full US tour beginning AUG 22nd as a support for TOOL. We are also planning a full US Headlining tour for after the record comes out in November and December, so we WILL be coming to a town near you soon enough.

The LIVE 4 CD is now out of our hands and at our webstore waiting for the good people there to sort out the particulars… but anyway keep checking. If you aren't familiar with the HYDRAHEAD /  ISIS webstore, they will often offer special deals with a CD and T-SHIRT and so forth and so on and we have done something similar with the LIVE 4 CD, hence the delay. It will be worth the wait, we promise. By the way, the ISIS LIVE CD series is something we do ourselves, and where the previous 3 releases consisted of complete sets, this 4th CD includes a variety of performances from 7 or 8 different shows.

We head over seas in a week, and are really looking forward to playing some shows again, as well as seeing all our friends in Holland, France, and England. We'll have some more exciting news to reveal in the coming weeks so please stay tuned.

OK, hope everyone’s summer is going splendidly – CHIN CHIN!
