Eighteen Visions have been home as of late compiling material for their upcoming Epic Records debut. The group has actually been writing songs for their last two years, paring 30 songs down to 20, with intentions to ultimately record 12 or 13 for the album. According to the band, "We have so much material and so many great songs that we could easily make a double LP, but we know that's not possible." Pre-production officially begins on November 7th. Neither a title nor release date have been set, though the effort is expected to hit stores in June 2006.

The upcoming Eighteen Visions, Remembering Never, Boys Night Out, and It Dies Today tour has been cancelled. The U.S. tour was to run from November 6th until December 10th, but has been scrapped now that Eighteen Visions "got an awesome opportunity for a massive tour in Europe." Instead, Remembering Never will now co-headline a U.S. tour with Most Precious Blood, with support from Dead To Fall and It Dies Today. Dates will span late-November to late-December. Meanwhile, Boys Night Out will tour the U.S. during the same time period with Emery and From First To Last.
Roadrunner Records is releasing the long-awaited MTV2 Headbangers Ball Volume 2 Compilation this Tuesday. 40 tracks from 40 of the hottest acts in mainstream heavy metal and in the underground, for one low price. Who needs the radio, when you have this awesome play list to pop in the CD player. MTV has put up a full preview of the album, which you can access by clicking here
An article has been posted on Bangor Daily News about Eighteen Visions:
"Metalcore" is a term not often heard in these parts when talking about popular music. Aside from the odd college radio show, you're not likely to hear this crunching, fist-pumping hybrid of punk and heavy metal over the airwaves in this area.If you have cable television, you might stumble across a video or two on Fuse or MTV during a late-night channel surf, especially if you happen across the latter channel's revamped "Headbanger's Ball" program.
In any case, this underrepresentation is kind of surprising. From Portland up the coast, Maine has had its own thriving metalcore scene for years, supported by a tight network of devoted fans and a handful of all-ages venues where this kind of music can actually be played, which I hope to check out in future columns.

The following message was written in the Eighteen Visions online journal:
"So im gonna do a real update for once, maybe ill throw some humor in there. Ok so we did 2 weeks on the Vans Warped Tour. It was great to be on the same tour with such great bands as Bad Religion, Bouncing Souls, Alkaline Trio, Yellowcard and NOFX. We Played on the Smart Punk Stage with great bands and good friends Underoath, From First to Last and Saosin. The days were long and hot, but fun to tan, hang out with beautiful women and pogo mosh to The Casualties. I wish we could have been on more of the tour. Maybe next year we will get the full tour and play a main stage.
In other band related news...We just recently parted ways our drummer Jason Shrout and it was on good terms. We love that fool and hope that one day he will shave his legs. =) We now have Trevor Whorror aka The Dark One. You may also know him from having almost 7,000 friends on myspace.
We were suppose to start the Lost Prophets tour yesterday, but due to trailer problems we were stuck in Arizona for 2 days. We got it fixed and then drove to Houston to get our old trailor that our awesome merch guy Zipper [justin] wrecked. Now we sit here in North Carolina on a day off. We play tomorrow here and this will be our first show of the tour... Sorry to everyone in DC and Philly that we couldn't play. We will be back real soon, I promise. A awesome bonus about our day off here is that we get to see Sevendust tonight. I know to most of you people you think that's a joke, but fuck...they are heavy as fuck! They are true black metal."
