Isis - Update

The band posted the following update concerning some coming releases and some other things:

"Hey Everybody....

We've wrapped up the east coast leg of this spring tour and it couldn't of been better. Well, maybe Richmond could have been, but even that turned out ok. Thanks to eveyone who came out to be a part of the shows, we know a good number you travelled a long way, we appreciate it. Bear hugs again to Zombi and Dalek who killed it every night as well as being great friends and tourmates.

So we finally got the Live 4 CD together and will have a limited number of them available from our webstore soon. This volume is a compilation of songs from different shows over the past 6 years or so, with some older songs, a couple newer extended line-up songs, and a live improv 'jam.'

The DVD is in production and will be out in August thanks to Ipecac Recordings, as well as the In the Fishtank CD we recorded with Aereogramme last year in the Netherlands. The exact date and US distribution are still to be determined, but it will be available on Konkurrent in Europe.

We will be playing a handful of Europe shows and UK shows in July, including a performance at All Tomorrow's Parties' "Don't Look Back" series, where we will be performing Oceanic in it's entirety. Dates will be posted in the next few days. We will also be performing at this years Fuji Rock Fest in Japan with Mogwai and a shitload of other bands.

Be sure to check out MGR performing with Pelican and Mono tonite May 10th at the First Unitarian Church in Philly, and as a part of the Dalek / Destructo Swarmbots / MGR Big Band performing at Irving Plaza in NYC on May 14th.

Other than that, it's time to get the writing finished seeing as we enter the studio in less than a month.

Have a killer summer -
