U.S. outfit Renouncer just checked in with the following update about the band's status and future plans:
"Renouncer is a Kansas City-based band that was formed in 2010. We've played a lot of shows with many bands we respect and have released an EP and a couple one off singles that ended up on Toxicbreed compilations. About a couple years ago the band announced that we would be on a long-term hiatus, but last year stated that this group would try to pick itself back up, work on a new EP and start playing shows again.
"As it were, I'm currently out on the road with Shai Hulud until the end of June. The plan right now is to start mapping out a full length rather than an EP; music that has been demoed out in previous years by me, and also a good handful of new music that I have churning inside my brain. I have a lot of resentment and hostility that needs a vehicle, and Renouncer now means to be just that. Unless some DIY label hits us up able wanting to release it on 12" vinyl, it will likely be available as a free digital download on our Bandcamp.
"Once this album has been released, Renouncer will be permanently defunct. I highly doubt that there will be any sort of last show unless there's some sort of demand for it to happen. But it's time for this thing to come to a close.
"There is no intention for this album to be a rush job. If it's the last thing this project ever does, it needs to be well defined, properly heavy, aggressive, fast, and pissed beyond belief. More news and things like that as it comes along, and definitely a new track for everyone to listen to before this gets completely released."
Current members of tech-death metallers Diskreet (Siege of Amida Records) and hardcore band Kicked In (Thick Skin Records) have come together to collectively form the new band Renouncer.
The 4-piece hardcore act out of Kansas City, MO is set to release the debut EP, "Incorporeal Insurrection," on Disgorge Media sometime next month. In the mean time, the band has posted a full track from the effort via Facebook.
