Cataract news and notes

Swiss metalcore band Cataract has issued an update regarding their next album, in addition to a few other items: "As you might have seen, we don't have any shows planned at the moment, and that has a specific reason of course. It's pointless to keep it a secret as everyone can figure it out. We're preparing for the recordings of our fifth full length album! we're jamming a lot and working hard on the new songs, Tom is driving us crazy with 5 minute solo outbursts, Greg insists on songs that only consist of mosh parts, Fedi wants to sing about flowers and Ricky is officially down to one fully functional cymbal. But seriously, we're very excited about the new stuff! Once again we will enter the Antfarm Studios in Denmark where we will hammer the crude metal into shape with the help of Tue Madsen! More on that soon! Bass player situation: first off and once again we'd like to thank Ralf from Disparaged and Jay from Vale Tudo for helping us out on those past shows! Of course we're still missing a steady 5th member and in time we will be looking for the right guy, but as of now we aren't. Cheers to all the people who have already contacted us about it and those killing our nerves (you know who you are haha), but we are not officially auditioning for a bass player. Not yet. As soon as we will, you will know as we will make it public. You can write us but seriously we're too busy to sort this out now. We went to a casting session this past weekend and it was quite an experience. hopefully will be picked to take part in a TV show, and you'll possibly see us making complete twats out of ourselves. We'll let you know how it goes! If we're not too ugly it should be allright and it'll be lots of fun! As usual it'll take between 1 week and 1 year until we finally know."
