Hello and Happy New Year,
2008 was an interesting year for I, Parasite
. It went from being basically just me (with Bret as a live-only band member) to a full fledged band. Whoda thunkit? Even back when IP started, it was a two man job, and never quite managed to be a "band" in the traditional sense. Anyway, I'm pretty fucking psyched, because the band sounds great, and we're already working out new song ideas, and the chemistry is perfect. So welcome Bret (for real!), Nino, Brandon, and Mike!
As for those mistakes... I've spent the last few months really examining what's up with I, Parasite, and I want to kick off 2009 on the right foot. First of all, we're getting the new album, The Sick Are Not Healing
out, no matter what. It's been done for about two years now, and it needs to get out to you people already!
Also, I've really neglected having and using a proper mailing list. Really stupid of me. Well, we're transferring off of our old obsolete mailing list system, and trying out this thing at ReverbNation. So if you want to stay up to date with all things I, Parasite sign up here:http://www.reverbnation.com/iparasite
There's an option to join a Street Team. If you're interested, click it. We're going to make use of that this year.
Also stay tuned for an all new www.iparasite.net
(it's about fucking time!), more shows (next one is Feb 15 in Brooklyn, NY
with A Storm of Light
, and Zoroaster
), more video, more more more!
I want to thank everyone who's supported I, Parasite over the last 10+ years, and here's to making 2009 the best one yet.
