The Red Chord Hoping To Eventually Release New Material


It seems like some long-gestating new material from grindy tech death outfit The Red Chord may eventually see a release. An interview recently conducted by Rob Pasbani for Knotfest‘s ‘Squared Circle Pit‘ saw the band’s vocalist Guy Kozowyk share some insight as to where the group are with that and what they have planned.

Here’s what he had to say:

“We are doing some stuff. So right now it’s to a point where we don’t want to just drop from the sky and just do these random things without having something new in hand. It was actually kind of crazy to start, when we were looking at it around when we were doing the Decibel show and Tattoo The Earth last year, and then this other Decibel show out in Denver, where our last album came out in 2009, and it’s just crazy to think like – oh okay guys, like it’s been a long time. We have to release something new and just show that we’re still capable of writing stuff that’s, you know, as good as it was before – and if we can’t, then we’ll just get out of the way and you won’t hear from us anymore.

But everything that we’re going to do from here on is going to be with a little bit more of a purpose. Like if we put out an album on vinyl and do some shows to move some vinyl and to celebrate some of these albums, I could justify my head – yeah cool we’re going to get together we’re going to devote some time and try to launch this up right.

But until we get a handle and actually record something… Jon Rice has been our drummer for a while now, and we don’t have any actual new material with him recorded.”

He continued:

“…There’s been work in the lab now since 2009, it’s just a matter of actually – I think everyone’s on the same page in terms of wanting to do the stuff. I think right now more so than ever before, I think we’re all on the same page that, okay yeah – we we should really either give this a send off with some new material, or keep it going again, or something. Because the shows that we did play, I think we all just kind of missed being creative, and we missed each other. Those are some of my best friends and I love working with those guys.”

The group are presently scheduled to perform at this year’s ‘Milwaukee Metal Fest‘ at The Rave/Eagles Club in Milwaukee, WI on May 18th.
