Amalgama Issues Band Activity Update

New York's Amalgama has issued the following update about the band's recent activity:

"We've been busy the last few weeks with coordinating time to get back into the studio to finish the new EP (the drum recordings went amazingly well; we'll leave it to Justin to tell you all about it a bit later on) and re-configuring things with Nate's departure from Amalgama's ranks. Nate had been thinking for a while about changing his career path so we knew the decision was going to come sooner rather than later and we planned accordingly.

"The search for a new lead guitar player was surprisingly short because there was one clear candidate for the job: Ray Hill. We've known Ray for a while and his work in various local music outlets around the Capital District and when Nate let us know his plans and future schemes Ray immediately sprang to mind as a replacement. To tell you the truth, we didn't even really consider anyone else and it was a no-brainer from the outset. Over the past few weeks he's been working with us getting up to speed on the new material and we can't wait to introduce him to the Amalgama fans in the next few weeks via our YouTube page, onstage and on our new disc. So don't don't be afraid to send him words of welcome!

"In other exciting news, Amalgama will finally be moving into the new rehearsal space we have been hinting about for months this weekend. If you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or MySpace then you can watch for pictures of the new space over this weekend. As always, hilarity will ensue.

"We also are waiting on getting the mix back from our last show at Savannah's which we recorded; there were more than a few feisty metalheads in the crowd and we enjoyed seeing heads bobbing and horns in the air."
