Justin Knipper of Mucopus has issued a statement regarding recent band happenings:
"We are rounding the bend in the writing process of our upcoming cd, UNDIMENSIONAL slated for a summer release through Nice To Eat You Records. The more we've been writing the more obvious it will be to everyone how much stronger, mature and generally advanced the newer material is compared to 'Mulch?!?'. Tentative song-titles include 'Super No Vacancy', 'Mucus vs. Them', 'Undimensional', 'Load Rag', 'Pus Must Flow', etc. Toshihiro Egawa is handling the cover art and it is looking unreal. Egawa's done work with acts such as Malignancy, Mortician, Deeds of Flesh, Beheaded and many more.
In other news, we will be releasing our split cd with Mincing Fury & Guttural Clamour of Queer Decay sometime this winter through Obliteration Records out of Japan. Our side will feature 2 pre-production demos we recorded last summer as well as some live stuff and some sonic re-workings courtesy of Peacemaker (Rich Hoak of Brutal Truth and Total Fucking Destruction glory).
On top of the split release, Disembowel Records out of Indonesia will be re-releasing 'Mulch?!?' on cassette tape with new artwork courtesy of famous Bali artist Dede Suwahita. We'll have 2 live bonus tracks dating back to 2004 from our radio appearance on Return To The Pit."

As previously reported, Mucopus recently entered Max Trax/M Studios with engineer Brett Portzer in Albany and began recording some pre-production material for the upcoming full-length due out next year. These will be the first recordings with Jason (vocals) and Vesgore (guitar).
Death metallers Mucopus, featuring Jason Keyser of Skinless, vocals, have posted the following update:
"We're going into Max Trax/M Studios with engineer Brett Portzer down in Albany tomorrow to begin recording some pre-production material for the upcoming full-length due out next year. Hopefully we'll have some samples up for you by the end of next week, as these will be the first recordings we'll have with Jason (vocals) and Vesgore (guitar).
NY's Mucopus have recruited Adam Mason (Goratory, Sexcrement) to fill in for Mucopus vocalist Jason Keyser for their upcoming European tour this fall. Here is a statement from founding guitarist Justin Knipper:
"Jason will not be able to do the Mucopus tour this fall due to prior commitments he made to his other band Skinless. They have a brand new cd coming out June 13th through Relapse Records and have some domestic tours lined up for around the time we have our European tour. We've known Adam for years and felt as though he was the best candidate to fill in because of his insane vocal range and stage presence and the fact we're already all friends. We're really excited about this tour and we're looking forward to finishing up our new material we've written with Jason towards the end of the year."

In other news, guitarist and co-founder Ernie Rau has decided to amicably part ways with the band. Rau on the split: "It's been fun but it's time to move on to new things..." Rau and Organ Harvest drummer Rob Nudo have started work on a new project entitled Tentacles. Mucopus plans to continue on as a four-piece, although the addition of a second guiatrist has not been ruled out.
The rest of the band has kept busy over the past months with separate projects. Guitarist Justin Knipper recently joined Wasteform and completed a European tour with the band this past October, while Corey Hall joined Organ Harvest and has been performing with the band in various parts in the Northeast. Vocalist Jason Keyser has been hard at work completing the recording sessions for Skinless' fourth full-length entitled "Trample The Weak, Hurdle The Dead."
