METAL CHURCH Posts Studio UpdateFriday, 24th May 2013
METAL CHURCH is currently in the studio recording the follow-up to 2008’s This Present Wasteland.
Guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof checks in with a brief update from the studio: “The record is coming along great! Ronny (Munroe) has started crankin’ out the vocals and as usual, sounds killer! We are looking at an early fall release.”
Metal Church had formally announced in 2009 that they were calling it quits, but reunited for the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise where the band performed their legendary debut in its entirety.
“We’re just not going to do things the way that we did before,” Munroe revealed recently. “We’re not 25 anymore, not saying that we’re old, but we need to do things the right way. And we all still get along.”
“Everybody understands that this is a complicated business,” drummer Jeff Plate added. “A lot of things had to fall into place. We gotta get a good record put together and done first, to be honest that’s the first thing. There’s a distance between some of the band members, but that’s really not so much of an issue. It’s really getting the music to the ears of the fans, in their hands and then getting with someone who can put us in the right environment, at the right show, working with the right band.”
