October 9, 2017
THE PYRE is the name of the brand-new band featuring Matt Thompson (KING DIAMOND) on drums, Ben Kuzay (ex-MONSTROSITY, ex-WYKKED WYTCH) on bass, Shaun Schwanke on guitar, Erik O'Reilly on keyboards and Alec Harrah on vocals. The group, which is currently recording its debut album, has just released its eponymously titled first single. The song was recorded and mixed by Schwanke at Auditory Bliss Studio in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, except for the drums, which were laid down by Thompson at Whakatane Studio in Denton, Texas.
THE PYRE's debut full-length effort is tentatively due in 2018.
