The band is currently working on material for their new cd, due out in 2014. "We're excited to get back to the creative process of writing and rehearsing original material. The new cd will be full length, and include some songs never heard before outside the band. At this point, we believe we have a studio nailed down, but no dates as of yet. Pre-production will continue for a few more months, so hopefully we'll have the cd out by Summer at the latest." - Randy Mallett. Check back for more updates, including show announcements. Get some! - TFT
November 22nd @ Pitters Cafe and Lounge in Cape, with Primer 55! We're damn stoked to be playing with these guys. One of the members played bass for Soulfly, and they have been on tour with Slipknot, Machine Head and many others, including playing Ozzfest. Our brothers Bleed The Devine and Lucid Minds also appearing!
Big news! TFT is hella proud to announce the name of their new bass player - none other than Justin (Boz) Boswell! Boz has been around the scene for years so most of you know him already. He brings a wealth of experience and talent to the table, and we're absolutely 1,000% stoked to have him in the band.
Boz has served in the local music scene for well over 15 yrs. He has always had a fondness and strong desire to jam with anyone and everyone, keeping a close bond with SEMO's music scene. He has toured both nationally and internationally in prior bands. Boz will be hitting the low notes for TFT, effective immediately.
From Boz: "I am excited to be going back to a familiar place in my music journey, and that is back to my metal roots. Jamming with Tried For Treason is like revisiting the ghost of the truest music scene I have ever known - in the Manhattan Room (Sikeston) and Enchanted Forest (Cape Girardeau). It had awaken an old passion that had been trapped within for so long."
Stay tuned for more news from TFT. We're in the process of writing and rehearsing more songs, so we hope to be booking shows in the very near future.
We'd also like to thank our former/original bass player Brandon Reeder, for nearly a year's worth of service, many gigs and recording our debut EP with us. He's a very talented musician so he will undoubtedly be busy with other projects soon. We wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors, and have no doubt he will be successful in whatever musical path he decides to pursue.
