Century Media artists IWrestledABearOnce has begun recording their full length debut album in the house of famed producer Ross Robinson. The band is working with Ryan Boesch and expect to release the album by next spring. Comments the band:
“Ryan Boesch is a son of a bitch and a dirty, godless savage... but on the bright side, we are writing and recording on the beach at Ross Robinson's house and drinking all of Norma Jean's leftover energy drinks. Anyway, Ryan is as insane as us and since his discography includes 2Pac, Andrew WK, Tomahawk, and Sheryl Crow, we know we are in good hands. We will be updating our MySpace with all kinds of stupid news, so keep in touch on there for all of the latest! Our drummer has horrific gas.”
Louisiana based experimental metallers IWrestledABearOnce has announced that band members Ryan Pearson (drums), Brian Dozier (bass) and John Ganey (guitars/programming) have all parted ways with the band.

"Being on tour and signing to a label and being poor and living in a van for all of eternity and blah blah isn't for everyone. you've probably noticed that most full-time touring bands go through member changes and.. well.. shit happens.. we still love john/brian/ryan, but life goes on and iWaBo will continue until we all fall apart or die in an epic van/plane crash!
