The recently reunited AMEBIX have confirmed the release of Redux, a 3-song EP featuring live and re-recorded versions of several of the band’s classics, “Winter,” “Chain Reaction,” and “Arise.” The songs were remixed by current drummer Roy Mayorga (NAUSEA, CRISIS, SOULFLY, STONE SOUR).
Redux will be available on CD, 12″ LP and digitally. The vinyl edition will include a free download card, which will feature a live version of “Progress?” as a bonus track.
AMEBIX are currently working on a new album. Founder Rob “The Baron” Miller issued the following on the bands recent activities:
“AMEBIX ended a series of shows and tours in 2009 by spending time in Derbyshire to record tracks for a new album. So far we have 6 songs recorded, and Stig and I have been writing independently so that when we all get a chance to meet again we should be able to complete the album material quite quickly. The new songs see AMEBIX as a more mature vehicle, with a lyrical and musical diversity that we are very happy with. It has been important for us to continue to explore musically rather than getting stuck in our own tracks.I think initially we are concerned about whether or not we would be able to write material that we would be happy with, but the songs so far are stronger than anything we have done in the past, without becoming overly technical, but remaining true to the ethos.
“Roy Mayorga is currently recording with STONE SOUR, after which they will be on the road for another year and a half, so our window of opportunity will occur when Roy is in Europe again and has time to spend in the studio with us. This means that we are all on high alert status; we may only have a week or so of notice when that window appears, so we’ll need to get a studio, accommodation, flights etc and crack into it! It’s exciting.”
Redux drops June 28th through Profane Existence Collective.
