Dan Tompkins leaves Skyharbor 22 replies

Dan Tompkins (singer for every progressive metal and djent band in the world) has mutually parted ways with the Delhi based, Skyharbor. The distance and heightened tour schedule for Skyharbor coupled with Tompkins rejoining TesseracT helped make the decision much easier for both sides and there is no bad blood between them. This will have no impact on the White Moth Black Butterfly project that consists of both Tompkins and Keshav Dhar.

The band has already brought on a new singer, Eric Emery (formerly of Concordia) to take over vocal duties. Here is Eric in a live take of the first song on Skyharbor's last album, "Evolution."

Failure stream new album 12 replies

It's been 19 years since we've heard anything from the space rockers who left us stranded on Fantastic Planet, but the highly influential, yet oft overlooked, 90's band Failure has finally returned to follow up that celebrated LP with The Heart Is A Monster. The album is set to drop on June 30th, but Entertainment Weekly has put a stream of the record on their website a week early.

The album was produced by lead singer and sometimes-guitar/sometimes-bass player Ken Andrews. It picks up right where Fantastic Planet left off, with a track called "Segue 4" referencing the three Segue tracks from the previous record, and an overall sonic soundscape that might have you thinking that The Heart Is A Monster was recorded 19 years ago.

The stream is hosted on SoundCloud, and can be heard on EW's website below:
