Jeff Loomis working on new material

Official press release: Jeff Loomis has also been working on new material as-of-late. According to Joe Nurre, the touring guitarist and vocalist in Jeff Loomis' band, "Jeff and I have collaborated musically on two of the songs, and I have lyrics and vocals written for the three." Touring drummer Anup Sastry will be programming the drums, and producer Aaron Smith will be recording and mixing. While residing in Wisconsin as a teenager, the former Nevermore guitarist played in a few death metal bands, and with these tracks, Loomis is going back to his roots. "The vocals will be more aggressive and death metal-like," Nurre explains. There are plans to release the recordings digitally sometime in July, with samples of songs to be available beforehand. Nurre adds, "We will be playing some of these songs on our upcoming tour with The Contortionist."
