Aaron Zilch formerly of AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE, TOYS and PINATA, has joined GRADE 8. Here's what Zilch had to say:
"I have joined GRADE 8 on Lava/Atlantic records. We are currently in Vegas writing the band's second record. The bassist and drummer are also new to the band. STITCH, formerly of TOYS w/ Ghost of MOTOGRATER and recently of PINATA w/ Meegs of COAL CHAMBER, is now providing the low end. Wade Hagbloom, another MN boy formerly of the amazing Gabriel and thee Apocalypse, is destroying cymbals on a daily basis. All the guys are really fucking cool. We're moving at a fast pace, wrote and demoed a bunch of songs in the first 3 weeks of Dec. and we have tons more in various stages of completion. We spend about 6 hours in the studio daily, get done about 6 or 7 and then go destroy vegas nightly. Good times. Should have the record done and be on tour within 5 or 6 mos, if that. In the meantime you can check out tunes from the first record in the True Crime game and an upcomming episode of the Sopranos.
Well I'll keep you all updated and I hope 2004 holds as much promise for you as it does for me."
