Jersey metal outfit Fit For An Autopsy has announced a new batch of co-headlining tour dates with Aborted. Archspire and label-mates Dark Sermon are set to open the bill.
Fit For An Autopsy is also putting the finishing touches on an all new, yet-to-be titled LP due out later this year. "The new album is a bit of a step in a new direction for the band," says guitarist Pat Sheridan. "It feels really intense."
The band will set up camp at The Machine Shop in New Jersey with guitar player and renowned producer Will Putney at the helm. The new effort will be the follow "Hellbound," released in 2013. The biggest change since then has been the band's vocalist: after the departure of Nate Johnson earlier last year, Greg Wilburn (Oblige) briefly filled in so the band could carry out touring plans. Just before the band entered The Machine Shop, Fit For An Autopsy brought in Joe Badolato (Diamond Cutter) as the brand new full-time vocalist.
"We found Joe at a perfect time," says guitarist Will Putney. "We had just come off months of touring with a vocalist we knew wasn't built to handle the lifestyle and stresses that come with being in a full-time band." Badolato's first show with the band was at The Brooklyn Asylum in Brooklyn, NY. More...

Metalsucks.net's South By South Death showcase featured guitar shredders. Tech death bands Archspire and Allegaeon were in full force, but before they hammered out their first blast beats, a different kind of shredder took the stage. Myrone is a one-man guitar virtuoso hailing out of Los Angeles, California. The sole member of Myrone was similar to Buckethead in that he wore a mask. Many of the long notes he held was reminiscent of Joe Satriani. He later admitted to me that Satriani is a major influence. He played his guitar over top of ‘80s style keyboard samples, which were part of a soundtrack to a video game.
