SHADOW SOCIETY has parted ways with bassist Brian Werner.
Commented the band in a statement, "Brian is busy with his touring job working for DYING FETUS, and has also taken on another project after that tour ends. We are in the last bit of pre-production for our debut release, and drums are already being tracked. Due to these circumstances, the band decided to move forward without him. We wish him well in all his endeavors. That being said, SHADOW SOCIETY is privileged to announce that filling the void for recording duties on bass will be a special guest; none other than the mighty Sean Tibbetts (KAMELOT). Sean is a world-class player whose sound, style, and passion are a perfect musical fit for our eclectic collective. We've all known and worked with Sean in various capacities for years, and we're humbled and honored by his contribution to our craft."
SHADOW SOCIETY is currently recording its debut album for a late 2012 release. Minnesota-based drummer Adam Sagan is entrenched in 14:59 Studios in Minneapolis, Minnesota with engineer Will Maravelas (WE ARE LEGION), while the Florida-based members of the band are set to enter Sound Source Recordings with Kelly Nunn (MAYLENE & THE SONS OF DISASTER) at the helm. Mixing and mastering will be handled at the Audio Refinery under the watchful eye and ear of Eric Koondel (CYNIC, SOILWORK, MALEVOLENT CREATION).

* Rob Thoth (CHRONZON, IMMANIFEST) - Lead Vocals
* Kevin Quirion (DEICIDE, ORDER OF ENNEAD, COUNCIL OF THE FALLEN) - Guitar/Vocals
