Heathen metallers Hauk have issued the following announcement about releasing a new EP titled "Baconic:"

"Hail all! So... it's been about 2 months since 'The Path of Ice' hit Itunes. A bold, mighty Thank You to everyone who's downloaded it and told their friends to do the same! If you haven't yet- get on over to Itunes and check it out!

"That being said, we had a couple tracks left over from those sessions. While I was in the Bay Area this summer, Techno (producer/mixer for NMFTS and the Trumpets EP) and I recorded a couple acoustic songs. I'd written a few more acoustic songs and once I'd finished the mix on TPOI I started tracking a few of them in between doing demos for the next electric album. Techno and I started talking about releasing a short acoustic EP, and I got serious about doing songs for it.

"Next thing you know, we've got 8 original songs recorded and 2 industrial remixes, for a total of 10 tracks. And it's no longer an acoustic project- I spent some quality time with both my Schecter 7-string and my Ibanez Semihollow Body laying down solos and playing with rhythm parts. It's been quite a fun project to work on actually- much more of a spontaneous approach to writing music. I pretty much just started with acoustic guitar and vocals, and then went through my arsenal of instruments deciding what to play with. A few songs I wrote a mere day or two before I recorded them- I normally sit on a song for at least a year or two before recording it, to make sure every note is perfect. With these songs, I just let Odin guide me wherever the song needed to go. I think it turned out quite nicely, if I do say so myself.

"I'm finishing up the last couple mixes tomorrow, and Techno is mastering this week. Once that's done, we're up on Itunes, and it should be available for download by Yule. We're calling it 'Baconic' -one of the songs is a tribute I wrote a few years ago (while very drunk- blame Techno!) to one of my very favorite things: bacon. Parts of the album are very tongue in cheek, others deadly serious, and others, well, you can take any way you like. We'll have a few songs up on Myspace shortly for y'all to listen to."

The "Baconic" track listing will be as follows:

1. October Rain
2. God
3. Spinning Jenny
4. 3 Dead Demagogues Walk into a Bar...
5. I'll Eat Bacon on your Grave
6. Where the Road Turns to Fire
7. Quinnipiac
8. The Bacon Song
9. Industrial Jenny (Remix)
10. Drum and Bacon (Remix)
