GENGHIS TRON are set to enter God City Studios next week to begin recording their Relapse debut and follow-up to their acclaimed Dead Mountain Mouth album. GENGHIS TRON will be working with producer Kurt Ballou on this still-untitled album that is expected to see an early 2008 release date.
Before packing up their gear, GENGHIS TRON checked in with: “Time does NOT fly when you're parked in front of a computer for 8 months making an epic, synth-driven, psychedelic dirge about the end of all time. That's why we're elated to get the fuck out of West Philly and finally record the album that has nearly driven us insane on more than thirty-five occasions...each. It's going to be a beautiful thing once it's done and we can't wait for everyone to share in our paralyzing fear of the future!”
GENGHIS TRON have recently posted a demo track, "Colony Collapse", from this upcoming full-length exclusively via the band’s MySpace: www.MySpace.com/GenghisTron.
Additionally, GENGHIS TRON will join THE DILLIINGER ESCAPE PLAN for a North American tour in October. This will be the first DEP tour in support of their brand new album Ire Works and will also include guests A LIFE ONCE LOST and BEHOLD THE ARCTOPUS. A listing of tour dates and cities can be found below with more to be announced soon.
