Keys To Winter: Ex-FALLOCH Vocalist Joins OLD SILVER KEY

I did a lot of posting about Old Silver Key, a post-whatever supergroup featuring members of Drudkh and Neige from Alcest and now there is some more news on the bands current status. If you remember, I recently posted about Andy Marshall’s departure from Falloch and I was left wondering what Andy would be doing now. I was sure he had good reason, and now I learn that he has joined Old Silver Key as a second vocalist.

This is pretty cool news because Andy has a great voice and I think his will sit very nicely next to Neige’s on the bands current and future material. The band issued the following statement.

“We are pleased to inform that Andy Marshall (ex-Falloch) has joined Old Silver Key as second vocalist and composer. The band will start working on the new album within a few weeks.”

Towards The Light: DRUDKH To Release New Album In February

We all know that Neige teamed up with members of Drudkh to create Old Silver Key, who released their debut album in September and now it has been announced that Drudkh is preparing to release their next album Eternal Turn of the Wheel. This album will be released on February 24th (28th here in the states) via Season Of Mist. Other than this news, all that has been stated is that this album “marks a return to the band’s roots and early sound.” That sounds pretty fucking good to me, how about you? Are you stoked for new Drudkh? The band’s last full-length album, Пригорща Зірок (Handful of Stars) was released in September of 2010, so it’s about time for some new tunes. Get stoked!

ALCEST Tease Us With This Clip Of “Autre Temps.”

Alcest is a house favorite to half of the American Aftermath staff (Bari and I to be specific) and both of us have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Les Voyages De L’Âme which is set for release in January. Well, Alcest has been working on a video, digital single and vinyl release of said single. A clip of the video can be seen below. The full video and single/vinyl will be released on December 2nd. Get excited.
