I have a new a solo release, The Spectrum of Distraction, coming out January 17, 2012 with Robotic Empire. This will be a 2CD album, containing 96 tracks edited and designed in such a way as to be played on random, and features contributions from 18 different drummers:

Mac McNeily (The Jesus Lizard), Ted Parsons (Swans, Godflesh, Jesu, Prong, & many others), David Dunnett (Ca Va Mal), Brandon Valdivia (Picastro), Richard Baker (ARC), Victor Cirone, Jakob Thiesen (Whisper Room, Nadja), Thor Harris (The Angels of Light, Shearwater, Swans), Geoff Summers (Batillus), Alessandro Curvaia (Shora), Simon Scott (Slowdive), Steven Hess (Locrian, Panamerican), Bruno Dorella (OvO), H. Walker (Kerretta), Andrew Crawshaw, Kevin Micka (Animal Hospital), Phil Petrocelli (Jesu, Great Falls, Grey Machine), & myself.

The album is available for pre-order from Robotic Empire here. The 2CD also comes with a download card for the complete, unedited sessions that made up this album — almost 6 hours of music! You can stream the ‘first’ track from the album, “At War With The Evil Power Master” (drums by Phil Petrocelli), here on my Bandcamp page:

(Obviously, these tracks should flow seamlessly together, which they don’t in the stream, but hopefully it’ll give you an idea what to expect)

The artwork for the album is by Matt Smith, whose work you may recognize from Nadja’s covers album, When I See The Sun Always Shines On TV.
