Shogun done for good, new project formed

Colorado's Shogun had been working on their "comeback" album (they originally broke up in early-2002 before regrouping several months ago) but unfortunately, they have decided to permanently disband. Most of the existing lineup has formed a new project though and guitarist Jesse Johnson sent us the following statement with all of the details: "In the wake of recording difficulties and a compromising semi-functioning band scenario, 3/4 of the existing Shogun line-up (Dave Heinrich-guitar, Brian Pennington-drums, Jesse Johnson-guitar), along with the addition of bassist Sam Neff, has to decided to leave the name behind and put its most recent efforts towards a new project." "The three songs we have recorded (without vocals) were the basis of a new Shogun full-length and will continue to be the basis of the new project. The music is a more complex and cohesive upgrade (we think) from the last two Shogun recordings, with maybe more intensity and musical dynamics as well. At this point, we do not have a singer, so if you live in the Denver/Boulder area and have a solid understanding of rhythm and meter, feel free to contact us at shogun303@hotmail.com. We will fill you in on the more specific requirements." "Thanks to all of those who have supported Shogun over the past 5 years, we hope you will enjoy the new band (name suggestions?) as well. Also, a special thanks to our good friend and Shogun singer, Warren Zeger, we are truly thankful for all of the good times."
