The Scarlet Hourglass Post Update

The following message has been posted via The Scarlet Hourglass'es Myspace:

"Hey guys

Right, after some serious boat-rocking line-up changes we're finally back at full force with a new, improved lineup. We've been lucky enough to acquire the vocal talents of Matty Horrors, who will be familiar to any of you old From The Carnival Of Horrors fans. We've been good friends with Mat for years and we're well excited to bring this familiar face and his talents back to you in the new format. We've also welcomed to the ranks Big G on bass, who also plays in Hardcore monsters truth be told and used to play in Mark My Words. He's an intense bassist, and will bring a new level to our music.

As well as these two, we still have myself and Davey remaining from the original lineup, and we're currently in the process of trying out various second guitarists in order to find the tightest possible replacement for Dayve, which is proving to be a tough job.

We'll still be using the old familiar songs, but they wont be up on our myspace much longer as we intend to hit the studio in the near future to get some new, full-band recordings. We plan to get back on the gigging circuit as of our return show with Anterior on November 24th at Swindon Furnace, so book us for any shows after that!

And once again, listen to the songs cause they aren't gonna be there much longer.

Thanks for reading and for your continued support over TSH.

Daryl, Lead guitar

The Scarlet Hourglass Will Continue

The following message has been posted via The Scarlet Hourglass's official Myspace:

"In light of the events of two weeks ago, I'd just like to make a few things clear.

First off, there is absolutely no bad blood between Davey and I and Greg, Dayve and Gavin. We respect their decision to leave and feel it's up to them the music we want to play.

HOWEVER

Even though officially the band ended two weeks ago, I've decided that this is the music i want to play. And im not gonna let the band die that easily. New members (some of which may be very familiar faces to people who follow the uk music scene) are already lined up, and new songs in the writing process, aswell as keeping the same name and all the old songs.

The Scarlet Hourglass is not dead, not by a long fucking shot! =]

If you've read this, it would be much appreciated if you could spread the word

Daryl - The Scarlet Hourglass"

Departed member's Greg, Dayve and Gavin (who have rejoined their old outfit Morbid Remains) will play as part of the band for a special comeback show tonight with In Numbers We Wait and Democide

The Scarlet Hourglass Disband

Unfortunately it seems the promising young British death metal act The Scarlet Hourglass have decided to call it a day. The band were rapidly gaining popularity among the UK scene. Members Greg, Dayve and Gavin had left the band to take part in the reformation of their former band Morbid Remains. Their gig on the 21st at Swindon's Furnace club will obviously no longer feature them (neither as headliners as scheduled or otherwise). Morbid Remains, Democide and In Numbers We Wait are still scheduled to perform on the date.
