Official press release: West Virginia's forward-thinking thrashers Byzantine recently entered the studio to record a cover song for an upcoming upcoming Eyehategod tribute album. Lead guitarist Tony Rohrbough offers this update: "Hi everyone. Just a quick update here to let everyone know what's up. While most of you were chowing down on some Easter dinner last Sunday, we were in the studio. We went back to Aaron Fisher's 101 Productions Studio, where we recorded our previous albums and recorded a cover song for an upcoming Eyehategod tribute album. We recorded 'Shoplift' from their Take as Needed for Pain album. I really like the way it turned out. It sounds absolutely nothing like us but it also does in some ways. Sludgy-as-all-hell-stoner-doom. You'll just have to hear it. We don't have a release date on the album at this time but whenever it comes out, we'll be selling copies at our shows. Until then, you'll just have to bug one of us to let you hear it."
