On the album, BLACK TUSK comments: "We decided to entitle this record 'TCBT'. It's a play on TCB, taking care of business, add a T to the end and it's 'Taking Care Of Black Tusk.' It's an idea, a slogan, if you will, that James and Athon came up with some years ago, and since his passing and essentially the reformation of this band, we found it fitting for a title.

"We turned inward after 'Pillars Of Ash'. Corey came on board and we did the tours to support that record playing the songs that we had written with Athon, then we took some time off and learned how to write with a new member, we took our time and worked out our ideas, we brought new ideas and talents into the fold.

"This record is something that we are truly proud of. It's its the culmination of two years of reworking ourselves as a band.

"We've closed one chapter of this band [and] are starting anew. We are Taking Care Of Black Tusk.

"We recorded this record as a three-piece and are going to tour to perform it as a four-piece.

"With a nod to our past and with the knowledge of lessons learned and experience gained, we are heading back out full throttle with a new energy and a new band.

"When you listen, you will hear BLACK TUSK, not the old as was, but a new BLACK TUSK keeping tour roots and carving a new path."

BLACK TUSK's latest full-length, "Pillars Of Ash", sadly had to appear posthumously for one member as the band had tragically lost their charismatic bass player Athon through a motorcycle accident. With a heavy heart, BLACK TUSK decided to honor Athon's memory by carrying on and recruited veteran musician and already longtime friend Corey Barhorst (ex-KYLESA) to take over his duties on the low end.
