The Boston technical death metal strategists in Pillory will release their sophomore full-length, "Evolutionary Miscarriage," via Unique Leader Records on June 10th, 2014.
The follow-up to "No Lifeguard At The Gene Pool" was written, recorded, and produced by founding drummer Darren Cesca (Arsis, Burn in Silence, Goratory et al) at his newly-launched House Of Grind Studios in Connecticut during 2013. "Evolutionary Miscarriage" is centered thematically around the de-evolution of mankind.
Comments the band in a collective statement: "Evolutionary Miscarriage encompasses in totality what the Pillory sound is by using different textures and an unbiased perspective to take listeners on a journey. It's impossible to catch everything on the first listen as the complexity will become more familiar with each new visit. Pillory's sound will suck you in and not let go as it travels through your veins and contaminates your mind."
The album's track listing is as follows:
1. And The Defeated Emerge
2. Mass Enmity
3. Evolutionary Miscarriage
4. Imbeciles In Defiance
5. Phantasmagorical Beasts
6. Purify The Commonwealth

Pillory has announced the addition of former Pysopus drummer Jon Cole to their roster. Meanwhile, the band is currently looking for a new second guitarist. Here's the official word:
"We are proud to announce that Pillory has recruited the talents of Jon Cole for drumming duties. The material for our next album is completed and we will be spending the upcoming weeks preparing to record. We're shooting for an early summer release date with the goal to spend the summer playing lots of shows.
"We are also in the market for a second guitar player. Ideally we'd like to secure one before recording the album so we can start playing shows right after the release. Qualified candidates should have prior band experience, reliable gear, be willing to practice twice a week in Boston (Brighton practice space), play shows on a weekend warrior basis, and not take themselves too seriously. Please contact Chris at email@example.com if interested to tryout."
Boston-based technical grind band PILLORY has parted ways with vocalist Putrid Pete. The band is currently searching for a replacement.

PILLORY's debut CD, "No Lifeguard at the Genepool", was released in July 2005 through Unique Leader Records.
Pillory has amicably parted ways with vocalist Putrid Pete. Pete will perform with the band on all currently booked shows.
The group is currently seeking a new full-time vocalist. According to the band, "Ideally, we would like someone with a strong hardcore styled voice, with the ability to do death/guttural growls, but we are open minded. Prior band and live experience is strongly preferable. Psychotic stage presence and offensive babbling between songs is a bonus."
Candidates must be able to practice 2-3 times a week, do shows on a "weekend warrior" basis, have a good work ethic, and preferably live in/near Boston.
Interested parties should contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
