Neuronspoiler today announces the departure of longstanding drummer Tim Barclay. The band had this to say:
"Having moved from London to Newcastle a while back, Tim suggested that leaving would be the best way to ensure the band’s survival. The rest of us refused to accept this and insisted that we carry on despite the 400 kilometre distance.
"Three years of one downright bitch of a commute took its toll on Tim and he finally decided this year to end his professional involvement with Neuronspoiler for good. We are still friends and throughout numerous ups and downs over the years we have never lost respect for each other.
"We wish him well and we urge everyone to see our former sticksman with his cover band Heaven or Hell? He would not approve of us delivering a Zoolander-esque ‘eugoogly’ so we will just say best of luck brother, you will be missed.
"Since this decision was taken earlier this year we have had some time to audition some very talented drummers. In the end we decided to offer the vacant drummer post to a long-time friend of the band.
"Please welcome Tom Ashcroft to Neuronspoiler! We have known Tom about as long as Neuronspoiler has been in existence since he studied at the same music school as David del Cid and former Spoiler guitarist Stanley Long. A music degree graduate, Tom brings a solid drum playing ability and a taste for electronic and experimental music as well as good old rock and roll flavour from his former band Salem’s Lot.
"We are excited to have the line-up of Neuronspoiler complete and will announce UK and overseas dates very soon. \m/" More...
U.K. traditional metal act Neuronspoiler released a new music video for the track "Take the Stage." The song appears on the debut full length LP "Emergence," which was self-issued in 2013.

London-based traditional metal band Neuronspoiler has announced the launch of a campaign on crowd funding website PledgeMusic.com to support the recording for a new full-length album, tentatively due in October 2012. The campaign page can be found at this location.
The group is currently writing and rehearsing new material fora first release since the 2010 EP, "No One’s Safe," and is appealing to fans to help raise the money by pre-ordering the album. Neuronspoiler drummer Tim Barclay commented:
“The way Pledgemusic works makes a lot of sense to us. Instead of borrowing money from a record label as we would in the traditional music funding model, we’re simply asking fans to go ahead and pre-order our new album right now. Your pre-orders will help us make the album. Once it’s recorded, you’ll get the music you’ve paid for and we won’t have anyone to pay back. Everyone wins!”
Guitarist David del Cid said: “I really think something that makes people get involved is the way forward. With this campaign, we’re really collaborating with our fans: asking for their help and giving them something exciting in return.”
London-based traditional metal band Neuronspoiler has named Dave Shirman (MOANA SLEAZER, ex-SERPENT SINS) as the band's new guitarist following the departure of Stanley Long in February.
The group is currently writing new material and will be going into the studio in the summer to start recording the full-length follow up to the 2010 EP, "No One's Safe."
Neuronspoiler drummer Tim Barclay commented: "We're really excited that Dave has joined the band. He's a great fit, in personality and ethos as well as musically. We needed someone who really loved metal and who was going to be committed to trying to do something great on the stage and in the studio. When Dave first started playing our songs it was like he’d been playing them with us forever and it felt good. We're really looking forward to hearing what he brings to the sound when we head into the studio this year."
British traditional metallers Neuronspoiler, have released a video for "Words, Words, Words," a track off their 2010 E.P. "No One's Safe." The video features live footage recorded at The Purple Turtle in Camden mixed with material from the controversial 2009 movie, "The Yes Men Fix the World." "No One's Safe" was recorded at London's Monster Trax studios and produced by Misha Nikolic (Mike Terrana, John West).
Speaking about the collaboration with The Yes Men, guitarist David Del Cid said, "We might do a different kind of art from what [The Yes Men] do but we share the same ideals of rebellion against these power-hungry, hypocrite institutions that want to take everything from us, we just express it in a different way with music." Neuronspoiler's drummer, Tim Barclay said, "This track ["Words, Words, Words"] is all about people talking on and on without it really meaning anything, so when David showed the rest of us this film he'd seen which was all about cutting through the vacuous rubbish of all these big business spokesmen, it just seemed such a perfect fit. We're so excited that they were happy for us to use the footage."
London-based traditional metallers, Neuronspoiler, have released their debut E.P., "No One's Safe," featuring five original songs, including one instrumental.

The band comments on the album's subject matter, "The lyrics touch on subjects familiar to everyone, such as the lifelong search for people who understand you, and the feeling of isolation from a society that wants you to conform. "

1. The Outcry
