Cancer Conspiracy set to release final album
Official press release: After spending over three years in legal limbo following the collapse of former label Big Wheel Recreation (Piebald, Jimmy Eat World, At The Drive In), the follow-up to The Cancer Conspiracy's 2002 instrumental post-prog masterpiece, The Audio Medium, will finally see the light of day in January. The eight song full-length, simply titled Ω, will be co-released this Winter by the Boston collective Radar Recordings (Junius, Constants, Carrigan) and Wisconsin's Gilead Media (The Appleseed Cast, mewithoutYou, Mouth of The Architect). The Cancer Conspiracy has been equally recognized for its beautiful works of "complex polyrhythmic psychedelica" (Aaron Turner) as for the aura of mystery and intrigue which has surrounded its members since the band's inception in 2001. Radar and Gilead have been working for the past several years to restore the recording's legal rights to their proper owners: the band members themselves. With this accomplished, the album can now be made available to the public. An online pre-sale begins on October 15th at gileadmedia.net and radarrecordings.com and will be available as a standard package (CD or vinyl only), or as a deluxe package including the CD/LP, a limited edition Cancer Conspiracy t-shirt, silk-screened patch, and buttons. Pre-orders will ship November 15th. Ω will be available in stores and online on January 29th, 2008. The album was produced by Matt Squire (Thrice, Hot Water Music). The Cancer Conspiracy was Daryl Rabidoux (Drowningman), Greg Beadle (Non Compos Mentis, Township), Brent Frattini (Daughters), Johnny Northrup (The Burning Paris, The Rise Park, Octave Museum), Matt Squire, Zack Martin (Drowningman, Carrigan), and Ken Johnson (Carrigan).
