Ensign prepares new album
Official press release: After a lengthy hiatus that left the members of Ensign scattered dealing with line-up changes, deaths, marriages, side-projects, and varied touring crew work (Tim Shaw spent the last two years guitar teching for Rancid while Nathan Gluck tour managed Sick Of It All, Unearth and Bury Your Dead), Ensign are pleased to announce plans for their upcoming fourth full-length album, "Lost Message On A Fading Frequency," the follow up to 2001's "The Price Of Progression." Dates have been confirmed for September/October of this year and they will once again be entering Trax East in South River, NJ with long-time constituent Eric Rachel. The band is currently working on pre-production for the new album with former drummer Chris Ross (Nora) at his Casa De Ross Studio in Highland Park, NJ. According to bass player Nathan Gluck, "Building off of the foundation that was laid with 'Price' we are pushing the envelope to encompass some of the heaviest and most thought provoking material in the bands 12+ year existence. The new material is drawing influences from all across the board and I can honestly say I haven't been this excited in years." To date no record label or release date have been confirmed.
