Legendary Chicago Industrial band Stabbing Westward has announced on Instagram their long in the works new EP, dubbed Dead and Gone, due on January 3rd. The group has said often at their concerts the last few years they had hoped to release new music at some point in the future. They released some old demos (The Iwo Jesus Demos) this year, but they had not released brand new music since in 2001’s self-titled album.
The group commented:
We have been working on new music for a few years now and are finally ready to begin releasing it starting with our first new music since 2001. ‘Dead & Gone’ features 3 brand new songs and 2 remixes and will be available as a digital download as well as a CD with full color artwork.”
Stabbing Westward’s current lineup includes Christopher Hall, Walter Flakus, The Dreaming’s Carlton Bost on bass, and former ORGY drummer Bobby Amaro.
