The Risk Taken have issued the following update about their guitarist situation and new album:
First of all, we want to acknowledge that our second guitarist Mark Choiniere has left our fold to join the ranks of Throwdown (this happened a couple months ago) and we wish him the best of luck in that endeavor. We have had for the past months Matt Fox of Shai Hulud noteriety filling in on guitar for us and he will likely be playing with us for the next month or so as we continue our search for a new guitarist. Interested candidates should be willing and able to tour a good bit out of the year, have their own gear and be moderatly capable at their instrument and all of the other crap every single band lists when posting something like this. Having past tour experience is a plus as well as living in the general Connecticut (or willing to relocate to) region. People can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also we are currently working on our full-length album entitled "Colossus" which should be coming out early next year. Tracking has been going well and we are very pleased thus far. It's definitely a change for band sonically- signficantly darker and heavier but we assure you that you will not be let down. Think along the lines of Until Your Heart Stops era Cave In and His Hero Is Gone.
