The Schoenberg Automaton has now revealed the cover artwork for the new album "Vela," which can be viewed here or after the jump. The band also commented on the upcoming new album:
"We're proud to reveal the album art for our forthcoming debut LP, 'Vela.' Artwork courtesy of the amazing Ty Dunitz.
"'Vela' will be mixed locally in Brisbane, Australia by Adam Merker at Studio Anders Debeerz. Some of Adam's recent work includes Aversion's Crown's LP Servitude and The Construct's EP. Drums were recorded by Dan Fields from Studio 454. 'Vela' will be released by Myriad Records and more TBA.
"We have yet to settle on a vocalist, and once we do we will man-handle them straight into the studio, shoot them up with methamphetamine, mentally abuse them for a while to really amp up the rage and the angst then handcuff them to the tracking booth for as long as it takes to spew disgustingly heavy and rage-filled bile over these tracks. Once that process is complete, the album is complete.
"Thanks again for all your support and we will cram this shit into your puny little earholes as soon as we possibly can! Tracklisting coming soon..." More...
The Schoenberg Automaton has issued the following announcement about splitting with the band's vocalist Colin Cadell:
"It's with a heavy heart we announce that Col will be stepping down from the role of vocalist. He will be performing the remaining booked shows up until the end of March. Please take the time to read this below if you wish to know more."
Coling also posted the following explanation online:
"For anyone who knows me I have been playing music and singing for the past 15 years; vocally I’ve tried everything from Musicals to choirs, choral to opera and in my later life (around 20 of age) I thought… why not metal, I mean I love it. The problem with something you love is that it’s a hard hard thing to let go of.
"Two years ago – two amazing fuckin’ years – I started working with Shayne and Nelson to create the musical entity that is The Schoenberg Automaton (TSA). From the start we openly spoke of our intentions to not compromise musically, aesthetically or personally. We aren’t tough so we wouldn’t portray ourselves as that and so on. We wanted the TSA experience to be an honest and compelling one. More...

"Vela is a constellation in the southern sky. Its name is Latin for the sails of a ship, and it was originally part of a larger constellation, the ship Argo Navis, which was later divided into three parts, the others being Carina and Puppis. Constellation footage sample from Spacetelescope.org."
