Danish modern metallers RAUNCHY — who recently parted ways with singer Kasper Thomsen and replaced him with Mike Semesky (formerly of THE HAARP MACHINE) — have issued the following update:
"We are working on new material. So far we are satisfied with seven tracks and we have a handful of other songs we need to work on some more. Mike did some rough vocal demoes for two of these songs and it already sounds amazing.
"In other news, we will start booking a tour in September / October with our buddies from MNEMIC and SCARRED BY BEAUTY!!! This will be Mike's first tour with us since he is not able to do the our shows in June; these shows were already booked before he joined and we were not able to make this work out with his schedule. Our good and beloved RAUNCHY friend Lasse Sievertsen will handle all vocals on these shows. See you out there or here."
RAUNCHY's "NGHT PRTY" video can be seen below. The song comes off the band's latest album, "A Discord Electric", which was released in September 2010 via Lifeforce Records.
Produced once again by longtime friend Jacob Hansen, "A Discord Electric" was previously described by Thomsen as "by far the most experimental, the most challenging, and the most interesting album we have come up with since the beginning of the band . . . Every member of [RAUNCHY] has had the freedom to take things to the limits, above and beyond, and believe me, boundaries are transparent this time around."
