"Our bass player search has come to an end and we are pleased to announce Daniel ‘Daz’ White as the new bassist for DA. We have been rehearsing with Daniel for a few weeks now and can share with you that he is just as fired up and committed about DA as we are. He wrote this message:

"'I couldn’t be prouder to be accepted as part of an extremely visionary, talented and ambitious band. Having an open position for a bass player was an opportunity of a lifetime for me, one that I could not pass up. I am very keen to show Divine Ascension and the rest of the world my talent, and plan to play this position all the way. I look forward to seeing you guys at our gigs. May the music live forever.' – Daz

"It would be great to see as many of you guys and girls down at our Espy show with LORD Saturday December 12 to make Daz feel welcome. And don’t forget you can listen to Daz with the rest of us live on ‘Screaming Symphony’ PBS 106.7FM Thursday December 10 at 10pm. We will be playing tracks to be released on our forthcoming album and will be having a chat with Peter & Gary on air afterwards."

Divine Ascension Working On New Albums

Progressive metallers Divine Ascension are working on their new album, set to be release later in the year. Here's the update they posted last month:

“It is with great pleasure that I announce to you all that work has begun on our debut album. I have spent the last five days tracking the drums for the album and can now handball my work on to the others for them to add their parts.

"We have managed to include most of our live catalogue of tracks on the album, but have made a little bit of room for some new ones also. In fact, we had quite a choice of tracks in the end, and many a meeting was spent deciding the album’s track listing.

"All things going to plan, we are hoping to launch the album in October/November 2009.

"Stay tuned for more album updates, photos and maybe even some videos too!“

In the meantime, check out some of their music on the band's MySpace player.
