Former ARTIMUS PYLEDRIVER Members Launch New Project

January 28, 2008

Vocalist Dave Slocum of the now-defunct Atlanta, Georgia sludge metal band ARTIMUS PYLEDRIVER has issued the following update:

"OK, yes, ARTIMUS PYLEDRIVER is done, has been for some time. Had a great run, and had some great times! Thanks to all y'all that came out to shows, let us crash, and all that hoopla. Not even gonna get into why, but the absurdity of it all would make for an interesting read.

"New things: We have a new band. Kevin Bond, who came on to the last AP tour, learned our songs in two days, and provided a much needed breath of fresh air. Kevin is a true pro, and has music in his veins. He has written some great new songs, and really taken it to the next level. Travis Owen will be doing his thing. Those of y'all that have sen him know what to expect, and lemme tell ya, he's pretty pissed off.

"James Atwell from MOSES JONES has come in and really kicked the intensity up a notch. Slide guitar, soaring vocals, and some really nice leads. I am still doing my thing, learning a lot from James, and having a great time with the new band.

"We have secured Dez Fafara's (DEVILDRIVER) Abaddon Management once again to handle all the business end.

"We need a bass player. We need someone who can tour, write. You have to be able to cut the string, mamma cannot come with you! Think AC/DC, GOV'T MULE, NAZARETH, MC5, ZZ TOP, whiskey bar room brawls.

"If you are interested send me a link to your myspace, and I will send you a track to learn. Must be able to live in Atlanta or thereabouts. MUST GET DOWN! Touring experience a plus.

"Folks, don't waste our time, y'all know what kind of person we need. We like four strings, Ampegs, Fenders, Rickenbacher, Cliff Williams, Lemmy, Cliff Burton etc.

"All that being said, we are having a great time, and look to be on the road again in the spring."
