Lake Bukkake Added To Metal Suckfest

The Metal Suckfest -- the 2-day, 20-band, MetalSucks-curated metal festival being held at NYC's Gramercy Theater on November 4th and 5th -- has made a last minute addition to its Day 1 roster: NYC pornogrind act Lake Bukkake will open the fest, prior to headliners Municipal Waste, God Forbid, Today is the Day, Howl, Black Tusk, and many more. Metalsucks commented:

"After months and months and months of negotiations — and by 'negotiations,' we mean 'us pestering and begging them constantly' — the group has FINALLY agreed to emerge from their shell to play the opening set on Day 1 of The Metal Suckfest, one week from today, Friday, November 4. The band will play both I Left My Heart…and 1996's Shut Up it’s Good for Your Complexion in their entirety. (The combined running time of both albums is less than fifteen minutes.)

"They also PROMISED us to debut at LEAST two songs from Chinese Bukkakacy, which they have, indeed, been working on for awhile (although apparently it may not be called that anymore — 'The idea seemed pretty funny in 2006, not so much anymore,' the band told us by e-mail)."

3 Finishes New Album

3 has completed work on the band's new album, "The Ghost You Gave to Me." The album was recorded at Applehead Studios (Coheed and Cambria, Morningwood, Straylight Run) in Woodstock, NY. Metal Blade Records commented on the creation of the album:

"Following the release of 'Revisions' and after several tours with Porcupine Tree and an epic run on the first Progressive Nation Tour with Dream Theater, Opeth and Between the Buried and Me, 3 returned home brimming with inspiration. Joey Eppard, Billy Riker, Daniel Grimsland and The Gartdrumm immediately began creating demos of ideas that would evolve into 'The Ghost You Gave to Me.' It wasn't long before the songs took on a life of their own. The band found themselves growing out of the standard rock compositional format into something more cinematic in nature."

Joey Eppard adds: "The songs told us where to go and the instrumentation followed. We knew this record would be our most progressive but it would be on our terms, and in our own way. As always songwriting and melody are the driving forces behind the sounds capes we generate. I think the biggest challenge was to rise to the occasion lyrically with so many musical scene changes. What I found was that I had to let go and allow the words and melody to be as creative and original as the music, if not more so. In a progressive situation this can be time consuming and indeed the bulk of my efforts were focused on exceeding my own lyrical standards. For example, 'Only Child,' an eight minute epic that traverses a myriad of musical scenes has enough great lyrics for half a record."

"The Ghost You Gave to Me" is set for release on October 11th and the track listing is as follows:

1. Sirenum Scopuli
2. React
3. Sparrow
4. High Times
5. Numbers
6. One With the Sun

3 Issues New Album Update

3 front man Joey Eppard has posted the following recording update online:

"Good news! Four songs are officially mixed for the new '3' record. Everything sounds great and its a pleasure to reunite with Mike Birnbaum and Chris Bittner of Applehead Studios. This is the team that recorded and produced our first record 'Paint By Number' back in 1998 and also produced and recorded Coheed & Cambria‘s first three albums. We’ll be back at it next week to hopefully knock out a couple more mixes. Then its time to finish up the remaining tunes and mix them in march. Good things do take time, and we believe this record will be more than worth the wait.

"Meanwhile we’ll be making our return to the Bearsville Theater on February 25th. Expect some more sneak peeks at whats to come from the new album… Spread the word!"

3 Issues New Album Update

Guitarist/vocalist Joey Eppard has issued the following update on the progress for 3's new, and sixth, studio album:

"We just wrapped up our first week at Applehead Studios. It's been a personal dream of mine to record in the room my father designed and built. It's almost like having him play on the record. The drum sounds CJB dialed in were fantastic and the Gartdrumm was in full effect. This record is going to be something very special. Our live performances are going to be rare this summer because most of our energy will be going into the making of our new record, but we do have a few very special shows coming up.

"June 11th will see '3' perform at the Basement's 3 year anniversary show. Later this summer we'll be debuting new material at our August 28th Bearsville performance where we'll be joined by Josh Eppard's new band: 'Terrible Things.' Of course I'll also be doing a few solo gigs to keep me sharp."

3 Finishes Recording New Music Video

Joey Eppard of 3 has issued the following announcement about finishing the recording of a new music video for the song "Rabid Animals:"

"Hey all, we've had an incredible couple of weeks. It started with the making of the video for Rabid Animals which evolved into an interactive shoot on day 1 where the fans could comment in real time and influence the direction of the video. On Day 2 we invaded Saugerties and got everyone we could to foam at the mouth for the camera. From cops to chefs to store clerks, beauticians, to the grand finale of an entire bar full of people all foaming at once, everyone went the extra mile for this video. And of course we got lots of great videos from our friends and fans as well. A Huge Thanks to you all!!!! We should have the final cut very soon but meanwhile you can check out some of the mayhem from day 1 at this location.

"Were also discussing the possibility of a live streamed interactive concert where we will perform and you can influence the set in real time! This would be a great way to reach many of our fans spread out across the world at once. Let us know what you think of this idea!"
