JON OLIVA’S PAIN Hard At Work On New Material

JON OLIVA’S PAIN drummer Christopher Kinder has issued the following update:

Jon [Oliva, JON OLIVA’S PAIN mainman] and I are set for Wednesday to go over the next batch of material for consideration [for the new JON OLIVA’S PAIN album]. It will ultimately be 50 or demos from the start and then begin to narrow it down. Even then, after all that work, we will enter Morrisound Studios with 70% of songs realized and then the final 30% is the magic during the recording process that will bring it all to life. ‘Festival’ touring dates in Europe for 2012 is also on the table for discussion.”

JON OLIVA’S PAIN guitarist Matt Laporte passed away at his home in Florida on April 20. A memorial concert was held on July 23 in St. Petersburg, Florida.

JON OLIVA’S PAIN‘s fourth album, “Festival”, was released in North America on April 12, 2010. The CD, which was issued in Europe on February 19, 2010 via AFM Records, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 87.

JON OLIVA’S PAIN‘s third album, “Global Warning”, came out in the U.S. in May 2008 via Locomotive Records. The CD featured a guest appearance by guitarist Ralph Santolla (OBITUARY, DEICIDE, DEATH, ICED EARTH) on two songs: “Adding The Cost” and “You’ll Never Know”.
