Ugh... That long gap in time was definitely not planned, but I guess it's been a nose-to-the-grindstone period... I've remained disciplined and I've remastered 15 Super Eight Loop recordings since the last update - and I'm about to hit the halfway mark of this digitization process. Isidro and I have been busy with a number of The Fortieth Day releases, the first two of which are coming up soon. Anatomy of Habit has two shows coming up with L.A. post-punk pioneers, Savage Republic, as well as additional bookings later in the year. I thought I'd be able to announce the next BLOODYMINDED show by now, but I have to hold off for a little while longer. I believe that it'll be worth the wait...

Facebook iTunes Spotify Bandcamp THE FORTIETH DAY The Fortieth Day is the duo of Isidro Reyes and Mark Solotroff, both key players in the heavy-electronics outfit BLOODYMINDED, a band known for its aggressive and confrontational live shows. In The Fortieth Day, Reyes and Solotroff utilize guitar, bass, drum machine, and analog synthesizer to create epic, blackened, psychedelic-industrial drone soundscapes.
Two new releases are in the works, including one brand new recording. We've also submitted a new recording to Sergio Sanchez at Ruido Horrible in Mexico City, which he will release on cassette, later this year.

As mentioned, I've completed 15 new releases since the last update. As always, you can stream them all on Bandcamp. If you choose to follow Super Eight Loop on Bandcamp, you'll know the moment that a new recording is live. And on that point, I'd like to thank those of you who have itchy trigger fingers and who download each new release as they are posted. The dialogues that have been occurring around these recordings has been really cool!
