Mucopus Guitarist Departs, Other Updates

Mucopus' debut full length "Mulch?!?" is out now on Amputated Vein Records. The official (and tentatively) free admission CD release show is slated for this coming February in NY. More details to come.

In other news, guitarist and co-founder Ernie Rau has decided to amicably part ways with the band. Rau on the split: "It's been fun but it's time to move on to new things..." Rau and Organ Harvest drummer Rob Nudo have started work on a new project entitled Tentacles. Mucopus plans to continue on as a four-piece, although the addition of a second guiatrist has not been ruled out.

The rest of the band has kept busy over the past months with separate projects. Guitarist Justin Knipper recently joined Wasteform and completed a European tour with the band this past October, while Corey Hall joined Organ Harvest and has been performing with the band in various parts in the Northeast. Vocalist Jason Keyser has been hard at work completing the recording sessions for Skinless' fourth full-length entitled "Trample The Weak, Hurdle The Dead."

Expect new material from Mucopus in 2006 with the release of an EP slated for a fall/winter release. For booking information contact Justin Knipper at justin0121@hotmail.com.
