I'm about 75% finished recording the next Millipede album. It still does not have a title but right now there are eight finished songs clocking in at about 32 minutes and another three that won't be used for the album but will see release in some format (tape, split, download only). Earlier this year I was asked to do another split tape for Chattanooga label Failed Recordings and it was going to be with me on one side and German Shepherd on the flip. Sadly, it looks like GS might be calling it a day (too soon to tell but let's all cross our fingers and hope this is not the case) so the split has been canceled for the time being.

Next post should be a tracklist for the album. See you then.

This year should see the release of the 4th Millipede full-length if all goes according to plan. What I can tell you so far is that it's coming out on Install and will be a vinyl only release most likely with a digital download. Should be fairly different sounding from Realms while still recognizable as Millipede material. So far about 1/3 of the album is finished with work scheduled to resume this week after a lengthy break from recording. It has no title as yet, not even a working one.

In other news the second installment of the Brian Grainger & Millipede Play Ancient Hylian Folk Songs was released in December. It was intended to mark the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda videogame series which has provided inspiration in the past for the first handful of releases under the Millipede moniker (Hyrule, Death Mountain, Hylian Folk Songs Vol. 1). It was available through Milieu Music as a limited edition cassette. Most of these are gone but some may still be available through Brian Grainger's bandcamp page here.

And finally, there are still copies of the split tape with Neon Viking Funeral available through Failed Recordings for very cheap ($3!!!). I have also contributed a song called "Rotten Crown" to a noise comp they're releasing with a bunch of other Tennessee noise artists which will be coming out pretty soon.
