Engineer will enter Moresound Studios in Syracuse, NY tomorrow to record their debut full-length, titled "The Dregs." Black Market Activities will release the album this spring (Teenage Disco Bloodbath Records will handle the vinyl release). The band has released the following statement:
"Although it seems soon to have another full-length written and recorded within a year of our last record being released, we still can't manage to 'sit still' for very long. A couple months after we're done recording our most recent works, we're all always flooded with ideas for the next record. 'The Dregs' will be darker, more powerful, and contain some of the fastest songs we have yet to churn out."
Black Market Activities has officially signed Syracuse outfit, Engineer. The group has previously released material with Hex Records and Four Leaf Recordings. This winter Engineer will enter More Sound Studios with producer Jocko Randall (Ed Gein) to record a new full-length, tentatively slated for a spring 2007 release.
