Body of Scars Posts New Song Online

BODY OF SCARS, the Phoenix, Arizona-based band featuring JAG PANZER drummer Rikard Stjernquist and former 40 GRIT vocalist/guitarist James Santiago, entered the studio this past June to begin recording its second album, tentatively due September 2009.

Commented guitarist Randy Davis: "We have been busy in the studio, we have posted a new song (full version) for everyone to hear what we've been up to. The song is called 'Snap Count'. The second offering (untitled) so far has 16 songs and is around 68 minutes long. We are very excited for the way it's turning out, some songs that we thought were B-sides or throwaways are turning into real monsters. We hope you enjoy what you hear. We also mixed 'Miracle Of Life' and re-recorded the ending solo. 'Snap Count' has a few guitar solos in it so enjoy!"

Body Of Scars Guitarist Checks In From The Studio

Body Of Scars guitarist, Randy Davis has posted the following studio update online:

"We are actually going to play a show next Saturday (November 22nd) at Joes Grotto (we go on at 9:30) with three other kickass Arizona bands... so be there as it will be the last show of the year for us as we need to get out of the studio for a night!

"After the show, we finally start guitar tracks and things should start rolling after that. We dropped a few songs and added a few songs, the count right now is 16 for the disc. Scheduling conflicts, hour long drives to the studio, work, family, holidays, gas prices and everything else had really slowed the drum tracking almost to a stop considering we started tracking drums in June. But with great pride and relief, drums are done!! Everyone is very excited on the outcome of Rikards Professional playing, Engineering and overall drum tones on this beast of a CD. We just hope everyone else likes this disc as much as we do. We are still pushing for an late Jan or early February release."
