STONES OF MADNESS, the new band formed by Scott Thompson (DRY KILL LOGIC) and ATHEIST/NEUROTICA frontman Kelly Shaefer, has released “I Need”, the new single from their forthcoming debut album. The group is joined on drums on this track by former NEUROTICA skinsman G.J. Gosman in what marks the first recording by Shaefer and Gosmansince 2002
“I am really excited about how this has all come to fruition,” says Shaefer. “Scott Thompson is a really great guitar player, and we came together by chance, through producer Scott ‘Scoob’ Bush (ex-THE NIXONS), who was an old friend of mine from the NEUROTICA days, and it has just fallen together since then rather easily, and without the pressures of record companies or managers.”
This is a direction shift for Thompson, who spent some years bashing it out on the scene with the New York-based band DRY KILL LOGIC, and is quite a departure from Shaefer‘s work with ATHEIST.
Kelly describes the material as “big thick guitars, along with some fucking big catchy vocals…. bashers to sing along with, cranked to 11, of course.”
STONES OF MADNESS will continue work on its debut album for a yet-to-be-determined label and then head out for some shows.
