Pitch Black Forecast To Release Album With Remastered Tracks

Pitch Black Forecast, an all star project formed by Jason Popson (J Mann of Mushroomhead) and Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Death, Dark Angel) has signed a deal with Ohio-based Ferocious Records for release of a new album featuring guest spots from Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God), Devin Townsend, and M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold).

The as-yet-untitled album includes completely remixed and remastered tracks from Pitch Black Forecast's two previous releases (an out-of-print full length and EP) plus a special bonus EP by Bitch Wrangler.

"This record is a compilation of my favorite Pitch Black Forecast songs, which are remixed with additional tracking and far closer to my initial vision," said Popson, who recently rejoined Mushroomhead for "The Righteous & The Butterfly."

He goes on to say, "The funny thing about side projects is the time frame in which you must deliver, sometime things are rushed and unfocused. With this release we've trimmed the fat and took our time compiling what I consider the definitive Pitch Black Forecast release."

Popson with Mushroomhead is leaving for a North American tour as of this writing and is slated to appear at the Mayhem festival July 5th.

Asked what genre Pitch Black Forecast falls under, Popson simply said "pissed!" to describe the aggressive wallop of the material.

The project will mark the debut of another Popson side project named Bitch Wrangler. A four song EP entitled "Spitef*ck" will be included as bonus tracks.

"Bitch Wrangler is some totally original, experimental music that is meant to offend", Popson said with a mischievous laugh. Both the Pitch Black Forecast and Bitch Wrangler projects will release this fall.
