The band issued the following statement about the song:

"Hey folks! Its been a long time since we've checked in. We have been hard at work putting all the pieces together for next years plans, being that the album will be out early 2010. Until then, we will shower you all with goodies.. or feces.. you decide. I vote goodies, but that’s just me. Call me old fashioned... ANYWAYS, this Tuesday, (Dec. 1st, 2009) we will be releasing a new song on our Myspace. It comes from off the new record and is entitled 'Empathic Communicator, Part II: Beebee (Conscious Incompetence)'. The song is the 2nd chapter to a 4 part song. Why are we throwing you right in the middle of it, you ask? Because we can, I would assume that was a pretty obvious answer... We have some shows coming up at the end of the month, so come check those out. We aren’t playing much till the New Year, but we are looking to get some regional dates in December, so keep checking back! So, enjoy the tunage this week, expect new video footage, as well as A LOT of new merch in the following couple weeks for shirts specifically designed after the aforementioned track. So, go enjoy yourselves. I hope everyone ate like kings on thanksgiving and don’t get dead. "

Name Signs To Lifeforce Records

Lifeforce Records has announced the addition of California's NAME to their roster.

Founded in 2003 by brothers Wes and Jeremy Fareas, the New Approach to Martyrs Expressions [Name], is an amalgam of experimental tech metal, grindcore, ambient sounds, freeform jazz, blues, cultural world music, an odd sense of humor, and maniacal mood swings. "Music isn't supposed to be safe, it's meant to catapult you into a risky situation," says Wes. "We want to revive danger in art. We're trying to show that as much as possible."

With a few EPs, a full length album ("Portrait," 2004) and all new genre-bending material for their Lifeforce 2009 debut, "Internet Killed The Audio Star," which is set for a late summer release, Name has set out to remold all the stagnant preconceptions of heavy music.

You can check out songs from their Lifeforce debut "'Internet Killed The Audio Star'" at the band's Myspace page.
