The Scheme done, Black Tie Knife Fight news

You may have heard rumors, but The Scheme, featuring Drowningman's Simon Brody and Lifetime's Peter Martin, called it quits weeks ago. The group lost several members within a month and the band ended due to a "general lack of interest" in addition to the fact that the remaining members wanted to focus on their other project, Black Tie Knife Fight. In case you didn't know, Black Tie Knife Fight is comprised of 3/5 of the original Drowningman lineup, essentially the Hydra Head Records era lineup. Of course, just before their demise, The Scheme inked a deal with Deathwish Inc. for their debut release. Interestingly, Black Tie Knife Fight will now replace The Scheme on the Deathwish roster and the group is currently working on their debut full-length. As such, the band is also searching for both a bassist and second guitarist (Denny Donovan has been handling both positions for the recording). Here's what they're looking for: "It's important that we find the right person, people who are dedicated to being in a band and making music that challenges ourselves as a band and our audience. We prefer people located in the Bay Area but we're willing to help the right people relocate, we also prefer people in the mid-20s or older." If you're interested in trying out for the group (or even if you just want to purchase some of the last Drowningman merchandise) send an email here.
