Alaskan/San Diego metal band DOWNSPELL are wrappin' up production on their new album. After losing the recording of their eagerly anticipated new album in the last mixing stages, Downspell regrouped and are in the last stages of polishing the album. But as guitarist Jake Phillips says "anytime you're that mad, let down, frustrated, depressed, etc... It usually leads to great fucking tunes!" Jake also added "we had A LOT of time to rework some songs that we had issues with and also get a few of the guest musicians back on the second take. Due to everyones touring/personal schedules we lost a few key guests that unfortunately couldn't redo their parts. But we still got RANDY BLYTHE of Lamb of God and also BOBBY FERRY from 16 (Relapse Records) to get in there and they definitely kicked some serious ass contributing." More...

Relapse Records has announced the signing of Los Angeles, CA‘s 16. 16, returning with their original line-up of Cris Jerue – vocals, Tony Baumeister– bass, Bobby Ferry – guitar, and Jason Corley– drums, are currently working their Relapse debut and follow-up album to 2003’s Zoloft Smile.
16 commented on the signing: “We are more than excited about working with Relapse. Call it ecstatic if you will. Collectively we have been fans of the label since the inception of 16, and in fact, it's one of the only constants that exist between us in that we are always fans of something the label is releasing. Signing to Relapse is a dream come true for the band as a whole. Currently we are halfway through recording our Relapse debut and so far it is shaping up to be the definitive 16 album. We are channeling every ounce of our anger, anti-social conditioning, and songwriting skills we have developed over the years into this album. Upon its completion we will be touring the US and abroad extensively in support of it.”
Hardcore/metal band and At A Loss Recording artist 16 had to cancel their April tour. The good news is their album "Zoloft Smile" will be reissued. Expect deluxe digipack packaging and unreleased songs from the "Zoloft Smile" sessions.
