The Missing Vocalist Hoaxes Soldier On

Following the ill-conceived hoax from Upon A Burning Body claiming the band's front man had gone missing, Corrections House has now jumped on the same bandwagon.

According to a press release, the Corrections House minister of propaganda Seward Fairbury has turned up missing from his place of residence this week in California after an apparently violent confrontation within his home.

Corrections House member Scott Kelly said, "The last time I had any contact with Seward was ten weeks ago; it's not uncommon to not see him for weeks at a time, but he always keeps us in the loop with a postcard or a phone call about once a month. We went by his trailer and it was completely trashed; it looked like there had been a serious disturbance. If you've ever met Seward, you know he's mean as fuck and he isn't gonna go anywhere he doesn't want too. We're reaching out through our connections and through Seward's extensive family and trying to figure out what is going on."

Corrections House will soldier on "without" Fairbury, and continue to do work. The band is releasing a live record due out this Fall entitled "Writing History In Advance" through War Crime Recordings, will continue to work on a next full-length due out in early 2015, and will appear at the Roskilde Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark this Friday, July 4th.

And so it begins."

Corrections House Streaming New Track

Today the musical miscreants at Pitchfork offer up the first sampling of "Last City Zero," the forthcoming debut full-length from recent Neurot Recordings signees, Corrections House. Make a choice: "Serve or Survive" at this location.

The following press release was also issued about the band and coming album:

"A shadowy legion of lost souls, fused together by the impulsive forces of nature and altered states of consciousness, Corrections House is the maniacal creation of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury.

"Produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu’s Lair, Last City Zero offers up eight psychologically alarming hymns that span well beyond the traditional confines of sound. At once cold, mechanical, prosaic and pungent, Last City Zero is a full body experience rather than a casual listen."

Comments Fairbury of the new song: "How can the choice be any clearer? The less Serving you do, the more chance you have to Survive. Serving is rarely a positive experience and Surviving, although a victory of sorts, is truly the most basic form of existence. Either way, you’re fucked." More...
