New Isis Release In the Works?
2012-01-05 by Alex Newton | 104 Comments

Californian post-metal giants ISIS, who parted ways in June 2010, have hinted that a new release may be on the way.

The band’s official Facebook page sports a photograph of ‎”600 sheets of 100# French Dur-o-Tone cover dragged in for ISIS LP jackets,” posted by printing company Interrobang Letterpress. An accompanying headline by the band reads, “New ISIS release in the works. More transmissions to follow.”

Isis’ last new material came in the form of a split EP with Melvins shortly after they disbanded.

Awh lame, I was looking for an album of all new stuff.

but anyway, ISIS is great. It made me cringe when they were called "post-metal" in the news article, but still dope as fuck. All the Neurosis fans who hate ISIS can eat a dick #real talk #SMH

Yeah I know man why can't my favorite obscure band with 500 last.fm listeners get the top album of the year for once on a voting system where majority rules man I hate that.

Dunno how I feel about this. It'll rule, sure, but I wish it were new stuff. Beggars can't be choosers, I guess.

this thread is awful

but then it's an Isis thread so I guess that's par for the course.

to be clear, I like Isis but their threads are always full of mouth-breathers arguing about subgenres of metal.

I personally give a sh*t about genres. It's hard to say that Isis has a certain genre because every album is different.
