I am proud to announce the next IVM release which will be a follow up EP from Mainframe titled “Burn The Boats”. This 6 track ep will feature some of that same feel from the Debut last summer and continue on the trend started with the recent “Undivided Devotion” but taken to a whole new level. The ep will feature a special punk rock “cover” song along with a bunch of other great originals. Read a little blurb from NoahMainframe, below. Release date has yet to be determined. Stay tuned
“I wanted to let you know I’ve been working with guitar hero Demetrio Scopelliti on a new Mainframe song called “Peter,” based on the life and writings of the apostle. I asked Demetrio for advice when I couldn’t get my guitars to push out the “metal” sound I was looking for. He ending up recording the guitars for this track in his style (he plays 8 string!), and it sounds great! It’s going to make a great addition to Burn the Boats.”
