He has been releasing his own compositions on Youtube and various streaming services over the years. He has plans to release more material in the near future as well.
Life In Your Glass World will be the band’s first release performed as a three-piece with both their drummer and rhythm guitarist departing in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Mat Kerekes as well as Eric and Nick Hamm are the the remaining members.

Los Angeles CA hip hop producer Madlib has aired two brand new tracks in collaboration with Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet.
Titled Sound Ancestors, the album will be officially released on January 29, through Madlib's own Invazion imprint.
Hebden has the following to say about the creative process:
A few months ago I completed work on an album with my friend Madlib that we’d been making for the last few years. He is always making loads of music in all sorts of styles and I was listening to some of his new beats and studio sessions when I had the idea that it would be great to hear some of these ideas made into a Madlib solo album. Not made into beats for vocalists to use but instead arranged into tracks that could all flow together in an album designed to be listened to start to finish. I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and we decided to work on this together with him sending me tr ...more
Dear people. I am leaving Nightwish and my public life.
For a quite a few years now I haven’t been able to feel validated by this life. We have streaming company big guns demanding 9/5 work from artists of inspiration while unfairly sharing the profits. Even among the artists. We’re the banana republic of the music industry. Biggest tour promoters squeeze percentages even from our own merchandise while paying dividends to Middle East. Apparently some theocrasies can take the money from the music that would get you beheaded or jailed there without appearing as hypocrites. Just a couple of examples here.
This past year forced me to stay home and think. And I found myself very disillusioned about these ...more
Linkin Park have passed the golden key to their hallowed discography to the quote-unquote hÿpærpœq duo 100 Gecs, in a remix - aka reanimation - of their original classic "One Step Closer". The song is online and free game for consumption.
The video-visualiser-accompaniment is innovative and topical because it features fuck knows who wearing a Thanos mask and constructing a house of cards with a glue gun. Maybe it is a metaphor?
