|Biclops And East Of The Wall Merge|
2009-12-09 by anotherdeadjuliet | 3 Comments
|Continuing their moniker-changing madness, Biclops (formerly The Postman Syndrome, Day Without Dawn), have been absorbed into what was once a side project of some of their members, East Of The Wall. |
In turn, the band will release their new album Ressentiment under the East Of The Wall moniker next summer.
The band themselves explained the decision with a following statement on their official website:
“So if you read the “official press release” you’ll know that East Of The Wall had a lineup change, but what this essentially means is that East Of The Wall and Biclops are one band. Who didn’t see this coming? Yes, we know this makes the history of our names now a college level class, but that’s kind of the point: we’re done with confusing people. We’re one collective, we have been for a while, and now we have one name.
"The long and short of it was that we love Mike to death but he had other obligations, so Seth filled his throne. Chris was already leaning East Of The Wall songs to be the touring guitar player since Matt can’t tour, so when the drummer swap happened East Of The Wall was now in an interesting position. Effectively, the live East lineup was Biclops.
"So we’ve thrown up our hands and said screw it. There’s no point in arbitrarily dividing our music into instrumental and vocal bands. We’ll still play instrumental music and music with vocals. The writing and local show lineup will be all five of us, but we’ll tour as a four-piece. We’ll probably have specific focuses for individual records going forward so as not to muddy the waters, but honestly it’s all uncharted territory, which is pretty exciting.
"But enough abstraction. What does this mean in the short term? Well first of all we have split ep with Rosetta and Year Of No Light, which was just released by Translation Loss.
"Next, you might recall that Biclops has a record fully recorded, which we have titled Ressentiment. This will be the first full-length release by the new East Of The Wall collective, via Translation Loss this summer.
"Then in 2011 we’ll be releasing the first record written entirely by the new lineup. We have it almost halfway completed already, and the plan is to not leave any of our fans out to dry. Not to get too specific but we have a pretty big idea for a concept record that’ll span the breadth of everything we’ve done."

Pretty cool, I suppose. I really liked the Postman Syndrome, and the EPs I have of Day Without Dawn and East of the Wall are both sweetness. Seems like they'd have to *try* to make this anything less than amazing.
I love Terraforming by the Postmen Syndrome but tbh never felt the same magic in DWD or Biclops, still though, I'm looing forward to hearing the new one.
The Biclops Demo from 2008 is fucking amazing. some serious talent here.
