Alaska's 36 CRAZYFISTS have posted the following update at their official web site:
"We are wrapping up the writing process of our new record and will be starting pre-production with producer Sal Villanueva [THURSDAY, TAKING BACK SUNDAY, VISION OF DISORDER] at our trusty rehearsal space in Portland, Oregon. This will take place for roughly 19 days, then we will be boarding a plane for good ol' New Jersey and entering Big Blue Meenie Studios to begin recording!!!! This should take us through the holidays and into early next year. The record will be released through Roadrunner Records in early 2006.Want to thank all of you for continuing to support and spread the word of us as we have been finishing up this record, You are all awesome!!!!
"On a different note, the NHL is back on and the FLYERS will be hosting the cup this year so tune in for the ass-kicking on the Outdoor Life Network on October 5th for opening night with the FLYERS and the Rangers!!!! Thats about all we got right now, hope to see you all soon."
36 CRAZYFISTS' sophomore album, "A Snow Capped Romance", was released in March 2004 through Roadrunner. The follow-up to 2002's "Bitterness the Star" was produced by James Wisner, who has worked with such post-hardcore acts as DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL and FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER. Veteran British knob-twiddler Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, SKINLAB, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, ARCH ENEMY, OPETH) mixed the CD at his Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, England.
