New York City's Candiria is set to release the first and second portions of their four volume collection of rarities and remixes. Titled "Toying With The Insanities," volumes 1 and 2 will hit streets on September 9th. The material will be available digitally on iTunes (in addition to most online outlets) in addition to a limited pressing of CDs and LPs (volume 1, 1000 CDs / volume 2, 300 LPs). Guitarist John Lamacchia is putting the release out through his Brooklyn based label, Rising Pulse Records.
The remixed tracks will be from the band's first three records ("The Process of Self Development," "Beyond Reasonable Doubt," "Surrealistic Madness"). As previously noted, contributions on the remixes come from acts such as Dalek, Dub Trio, Ghosts of the Canal, Kayo Dot, members of Dillinger Escape Plan, Fishbone, Peeping Tom and more.
Meanwhile, Candiria has also been working on new material as of late. Some of the new songs will likely appear on volumes 3 and 4, which is expected to surface in early-2010. Currently, Candiria consists of Carley Coma, Mike MacIvor, and John Lamacchia. And although drummer Kenneth Schalk left the group in 2006 and subsequently moved to the West Coast, he did contribute to at least two of the remix tracks on volume 1 and will also be drumming on the band's new tracks.
