Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, the Seattle sludge/doom band featuring frontman Tad Doyle, has posted the following update to its Witch Ape Studios page:
"Today we have finally finished all of the recording. This process has been quite a journey for us and we feel really good about the energy BotSC guitar amplifiers and emotion that we have have infused into the songs . A whole lot of heart and soul was poured into the record with many of the songs being written over six years ago.
We are grateful to all of the people who inspired us along the way and especially those who came to our shows and showed us support all along the path we have weaved. We have booked time with the inimitable Billy Anderson Producer Engine Ear and we are beyond stoked to finish the record and move on to the next phase. Artwork! Stay tuned."
Tad Doyle, who has also collaborated with Mike Scheidt and Aaron Edge in the band Lumbar, will also be appearing with BotSC at the Bleak Outlook Vol. 2 festival in Tacoma.

Profound Lore Records has provided the following updates on YOB's reunion gig and their new album:
"Doom metal giants YOB have confirmed their gig to commemorate their reunion on 2/28/2009 at The Ash Street Saloon in Portland, OR with support from The Iommi Stubbs and Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth (featuring the legend himself TAD DOYLE). One can only expect something of the most epic nature, since pretty much a YOB gig is an event in itself. The band are also trudging away on the material for their anticipated new album, which is shaping up to be the most monumental and crushing YOB material to date.
"As of now, the band plan on entering the studio late march with the mighty Sanford Parker at the helm with the goal to get this monolithic piece of doom out this summer.
"As for the new material, mastermind Mike Scheidt had this to say about it:
'The newest material is such a trip, I don't know how exactly to describe it. We have one song that is maybe the most brutal thing I have written ala 'Grasping Air/Exorcism Of The Host'. But more brutal, and painful.
'We have another new tune that is very melodic in a weird way, almost poppy, but driving almost like some of the material from that 'other band'. With strangeness that is hard to convey.
'The final 'epic' song (that is 16 minutes so far and definitely NOT done) is like a mix of the song 'Catharsis' and 'The Unreal Never Lived...' big clean guitar intro, big slow melodic riffs, patient big builds that explode... it's going to be huge. It's also going to be an immense challenge to keep this album in the 60 minute mark. Five songs total. Lots of clean singing. Still lots of screams and death roars too.'"
