FLOTSAM AND JETSAM are close to completing the songwriting sessions for their new album, tentatively due in early 2005 through Crash Music Inc. "We would still like to write two or three more songs going in, and the vocals still need to be completed, but the music so far is inspired and heavy and we are very much looking forward to start recording within a month to a month and a half," the band's drummer, Craig Nielsen, writes on the group's message board. "The only thing that will take place before then is the upcoming Japanese tour with DEATH ANGEL and OVERKILL, Im not sure if TESTAMENT is confirmed because they have a different agent. Those dates are Sept. 24, 25, 26.
"The METALLICA tribute record came out incredible," Craig continued. "MOTÖRHEAD, DEATH ANGEL, DARK ANGEL, Eric Singer, Chuck Billy, Alex Skolnick, Randy Castillo, Bruce and Bob Kulick, Tommy Victor, Nuno Bettencourt, Scott Travis, Joey Vera, Scott Ian, Whitfield Crane, Mike Inez, Joe Lynn Turner, and many other great musicians are on it, and the thing kicks ass. It has been released already.
"Our live DVD has been doing good business so far, and the email we get about it is overwhelmingly positive."
