The Minor Times Part w/ Guitarist, Announce Split 7" With Rosetta, Post New Music

Pennsylvania's THE MINOR TIMES have announced plans to release a limited edition 7" split in addition to the band's forthcoming full-length, 'Summer of Wolves,' which is due out June 26 through Prosthetic Records. "Relapse records is going to be releasing a limited edition 7" with us and our friends Rosetta," the band says. "The record will feature two brand new tracks from us not available anywhere else. If you're not familiar with Rosetta, head over to their page, those guys are incredible. Needless to say, we're pretty floored to have a record coming out on Prosthetic and a 7" on Relapse with a great band."

In addition, THE MINOR TIMES recently parted ways with guitarist Lou Millinghausen on good terms. "Lou has been playing with us for some time now and was instrumental in the song writing process for 'Summer of Wolves," the band previously said. "We love the guy to death and will miss him a lot. Instead of searching for a replacement, we've simply decided that Tim will now handle all the guitar duties in the band. We have been practicing with this arrangement for over a month now and feel very comfortable with the idea of presenting it everywhere this entire summer. We've got a ton of shows coming up followed by four weeks of tour with our good friends Engineer."

The release of 'Summer of Wolves,' is the follow-up to 'Making Enemies,' which saw a 2004 release via Level Plane Records and was re-released in 2005 through Prosthetic Records. Producer Vince Ratti (Bury Your Dead, A Life Once Lost) returned again to record the record with the band to record the new record last winter and will be mastered by Alan Douches (Shadows Fall, Converge). The Mark Price-penned artwork is available for preview here (http://markpriceisafactory.com/tmt). In the meantime, THE MINOR TIMES has unveiled two new tracks from the forthcoming record on the band's MySpace page and pre-orders for the record are available here. Pre-orders ship within 24 hours of purchase.
