Spylacopa will be releasing their forthcoming album Parallels on March 31, 2015 via Rising Pulse. The project features Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Jeff Caxide (Palms, ex-Isis), Julie Christmas (ex-Made Out Of Babies) and more.

An update was released here:

“Hey folks! It’s Been a minute but we have some great news! The new Spylacopa record, Parallels is scheduled for a late March release. We’ll get the exact date to you soon but in the mean time we just wanted to inform the masses that we received the test pressings from Pirates Press manufacturing and the test pressings sound fan-freakin-tastic!! So things are moving ahead and the record is being pressed up in some brilliantly beautiful colored vinyl configurations as I type this which makes me a little giddy inside.

The photo above [see here] is a shot of the test pressing in motion, on my home system, which is the best way for me to approve test pressings when they come in. Just your basic set up, nothing too special but it does the job. In other Spylacopa related news. Independent film maker and my good friend, Steve Perlmaster has put together a really incredible cast and crew for a short film inspired by the music of Spylacopa.

The first song off the new record, “Hexes”, will have an accompanying short film that will be released some time in the not so distant future. Here’s a shot of my bud Steve, mid shoot, kicking ass and taking names. With inspirations for this film ranging from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction to Brothers Quay’s Crocodile Street we are sure to be entertained by this short film for certain. More on that coming soon.”

Palms – Palms


Palms-Palms-SmallThe reunion of three fifths of post-metallers Isis alone is something to raise intrigue and hunger but add Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno into the mix and that appetite takes on a more voracious stance. It also ignites wondering expectations as to which direction their sound and presence together as Palms would take, the heavier more rapaciously intrusive fascination of Isis or the experimental atmospheric devouring of Moreno’s day job. The self-titled debut reveals it is somewhere in between whilst exploring its own evocative and enthralling soundscapes.Continue reading
