New Band Pics…and New Guitarist!

Greetings! We’ve been waiting a little while to announce some rather important news, because we wanted to be able to show you something to make it concrete. If you don’t like reading, go here:

The news is that we have a new guitar player. We parted ways with George a few months back, after 11 great shows and numerous good times. George got an important career offer and took it, but it prevented him from being in the band full-time. We’re happy for him as all seems to be working out, and it’s great that his solo on Expiry got immortalized on the EP version.

Replacing him is new gun Collin McGee. Originally from Wemindji, QC, Collin is also the lead man in Elderoth, which you can hear here: http://www.myspace.com/elderoth His new album should be out around the same time as Derelict’s, so everyone will definitely be getting their fair share of Collin McGee shreds in 2012!

Biography

Hailing from Montreal, Derelict mixes the brutal and technical elements of the Quebec metal scene with listenable structures and melody, resulting in an unforgiving yet accessible package. The band’s trademark sound has led to comparisons with the likes of Death, Strapping Young Lad, Obscura and The Black Dahlia Murder.

In 2009, the release of the Unspoken Words album through Year of the Sun Records marked a kickoff point for Derelict with several national tours, increased media exposure, and greater critical acclaim. The band’s 2012 followup release, Perpetuation was once again mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson of Cryptopsy and contains 12 furious tracks that showcase an upgraded version of what Derelict fans have come to love. This new crushing-yet-memorable opus led the band to be nominated for “Metal Artist Of The Year” at the 2013 Canadian Independent Music Awards alongside Devin Townsend and Bison BC, as well as to secure international distribution through Maple Metal Records.

“This album was long in the making, and saw the band through some intense challenges,” says vocalist Eric Burnet. “We survived our trials and came back much stronger. Perpetuation is streamlined Derelict: it has fast tempos and brutal riffs, but lots of melody and catchiness too. We all pushed ourselves to expand what we could do with our instruments, and we got Sébastien Pittet (ex-Augury) playing fretless bass on it too!”

With the help of constant touring within Canada, and support for international acts such as Decapitated, Cryptopsy, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Decrepit Birth, Job For A Cowboy, Whitechapel, The Agonist, Revocation and Threat Signal, the band continues to spread its socio-political message of self-empowerment, freedom and peace to a mass of receptive fans.
