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 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."
