The recordings on Assemblage 23
's seventh regular full length album 'Bruise' was completed in late February.
According to Tom Sheer
in his own words: 'Bruise' is coming along very nicely and I'm really happy with how it's coming out. I think the songs are some of the catchiest ones I've done with a lot of emphasis on melody. Style-wise, it is sort of an interesting combination of retro and futuristic influences.
The originally announced 'The Noise inside My Head'-EP will not be released anymore as singles have become a sort of 'dead' format... Instead all the remixes recorded for the planned EP have been included in the limited edition of 'Bruise'.
The limited edition comes with a 10-tracks bonus-Album, featuring 3 exclusive tracks, not on the regular album plus 7 additional remixes of Album tracks by Grendel
, Cesium 137
, Alter Der Ruine
and Sonik Foundry
