"It's probably more exciting for us than any of the fans right now," laughs DRILL 187 vocalist and founding member Jason Lilley. "We were just so excited that the interest level since our breakup in 2005 remained as intense as it has been. When Craig [Stegall; Away-Team Music president] asked us if we would consider getting back together and releasing an album full of some of our hard-to-find tracks along with a few live ones, we were kind of taken aback. Now the guy has us re-releasing our album 'The Faceless Majority' and putting together some new tunes for the next release, 'Crucified: Rare Cuts & Recycled Noise'."
Originally released in late 2002 as an independent album to be sold at their shows, DRILL 187's "The Faceless Majority" will be reissued through indie label Away-Team Music. In addition, the band plans to release a new album in November of this year that is full of rare, hard-to-find tracks, unreleased gems, live cuts and two brand new singles. "Crucified: Rare Cuts & Recycled Noise", an aptly titled venture, will showcase the band back in action again and reforming for select shows throughout the East Coast to ring in the new release. This will be the first time they've played together in four years and it promises to be another iconic moment in the group's history!
"The Faceless Majority" will be released digitally worldwide on September 29 via iTunes, Amazon MP3, Rhapsody, Napster and Shockhound. The album will also be available as a physical CD via the band's web site.
