Anacrusis vocalist/guitarist Kenn Nardi has issued the following update regarding the music the band had been working on before going back on 'indefinite hiatus':
"I am planning to finish the new music and release it in some form, but I'm not sure of the details just yet. This will not be an acoustic project like Cruel April. It will be exactly the same album that I had intended to record with John and Mike [the band's original drummer and bass player].
"Basically. I have been recording new songs myself over the last couple of years (during the reunion rehearsals/shows/festivals) with the intention of going back and replacing the programmed drums and the bass parts that I recorded using the other guys.
Unfortunately, this was going nowhere and we could just never find the time to get things moving. So I have left John's bass on a few songs that he had completed and have played everything else myself. There were rough drum tracks which Mike played and had planned to go back and re-do which I have just replaced like the rest of the demos (If you've heard the version of 'Made' I posted, you'll have an idea as I was the only one on that recording).
"I have more than 20 songs completed and will be working on recording the last batch over the next few weeks. In the end, there will be maybe 30 songs making up two complete CDs packed full of new material. Most will be very much in the style of Anacrusis (or at least where we would be 20 years after 'Screams And Whispers') and some a bit more experimental and/or melodic. There will be thrash stuff, proggish stuff, melodic stuff and some things like you've never heard. I have even recorded a heavier version of 'A Little Light' from the CRUEL APRIL project. With 2 1/2 hours worth of songs, there should something for any fan of Anacrusis and more.
"I still plan to call it 'Parallax Error', though I am debating whether to put the name Anacrusis on it or not. Regardless, by any name, the album would be the same. I plan on posting a medley of samples soon to give everyone an idea what to expect.
"I personally have so much time and creative effort invested in these songs that I did not want to abandon the entire project just because we cannot find the time to be a band right now. Hopefully some of you will enjoy what I have created this time and the new recordings will be something fresh for those of you who've waited for new Anacrusis music."
Won't be as cool without John's bass playing, but the drums might actually be better since Kenn doesn't have to have a real player replicate them.
