Amulance Falls Victim To Flooding

Cult metal band AMULANCE has fallen victim to the "ides of march" via a flood at Phlex Audio where the group has been mixing its latest album.

Phlex Audio owner and AMULANCE guitarist Bob Luman explains what happened: "The studio occupies the lower level of a building and Midwest March weather can be pretty fucked up. On Monday it can be 20 degrees and snowing, on Tuesday it's 50 degrees and raining, on Wednesday it's 30 degrees and snowing, on Thursday it's 70 degrees and fucking raining, and on and on it goes. With climate changes comes melting snow and draining water. Apparently local drainage systems and sump pumps failed, and the next thing you know the water comes in. I guess the water has to go somewhere. I'll tell you, man, even though we didn't lose everything, it's still pretty surreal to see a hundred grand worth of equipment under water. We just turned out the lights and went and got really, really drunk."

Since September, AMULANCE has been working hard to meet a mid-March deadline to release the new album, tentatively titled "Today Is A Good Day To Die".

Bassist Thom Braddish comments on the flood: "In one sense we are lucky that only equipment was lost, because insurance will cover most of that. The masters and mixed reels were stored in a dry area and are safe." Regarding the future, Braddish continues, "We will figure something out; we will have a new release by summer and we will definitely be playing the shows in Europe, there is no question about that."

AMULANCE is confirmed to play the Headbangers Open Air festival, set to take place July 24-26, 2008 in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, Germany.
