Please welcome Colombus, OH's Lo-Pan to the Small Stone Roster! We got a taste of their newest release and thought that they would make a mighty fine addition. The Lo-Pan band will be recording their Small Stone debut sometime this coming Fall and we will be releasing it sometime in 2011... Oh yeah, their band name also rules, (remember the classic film "Big Trouble In Little China"?
Boston's Roadsaw are about to start recodring their new and yet to be titled full length at Mad Oak Studios. The Roadsaw boys have been working on new material for the past few months, and they have now completed their pre-production phase of the game. The album should be completed by the end of June, and we are planning to drop it on October 26th of this year.
The debut album "Locust Season" from Gozu is now mastered and is days away from heading to the plant. "Locust Season" will be available on iTunes sometime in June, and the cd version will be available in July. The Gozu band is rather busy planning their record release party in Boston, and if you live on the Eastern Seaboard, you can expect Gozu to be heading to your town (or damn close to it) in the Fall. We will go out on a limb and tell you this way ahead of time, Gozu's "Locust Season" is a must have, and has our vote for album of the year! The songs are stellar, the production is bad ass, and the band delivered the goods and then some on this album.
Benny Grotto is busy mixing the new album from Denver's Black Sleep Of Kali. Their Small Stone debut is now titled "Our Slow Decay" is due out around the end of August.... Just wait till you hear what these boys have laid down, it is epic!
In other production related news, Red Giant are plugging away on the remainder of their tracks, and their new album "Dysfunctional Majesty" will be rolling out by years end. Also, Ironweed, Suplecs, and Dixie Witch are all scheduled to enter Mad Oak in July, August, and September (respectively) to lay down new full length albums for us, which will come out early in 2011.
So, how does any of that grab you?
